Shepherd’s Pie with Potato Crust & Grated Feta PDO

Feta PDO. Let’s get real!

By including Feta in your diet, you will treat your body to calcium, phosphorus, vitamin A, vitamins B and 489 and a combination of various types of protein. Since this is the case for Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) Feta, in order to maximize the benefits, always look for the special “PDO” label before buying your feta cheese.

    Ingredients
  • 1 kg of minced meat (lamb)
  • 2 finely sliced onions
  • 2 finely sliced carrots
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 100ml rose wine
  • 500ml vegetable stock
  • 50g tomato paste
  • 3 – 11 potatoes (depending on how rich you want the potato crust to be)
  • 150g Parmesan
  • 250g Feta PDO
  • 2-3 egg yolks
  • Thyme
  • salt – pepper
    Method
  • Begin by boiling the potatoes whole and unpeeled for about 30 minutes. When they are cooked, allow to cool before peeling and slicing them. Use a potato masher or fork to mash the potatoes inside a bowl, then add the salt, pepper, parmesan, Feta PDO and egg yolks. The result will be a kind of puree.
  • In a pan, fry the thinly sliced vegetables together with the minced meat. When it turns brown, add the wine and simmer for a few minutes. Pour in the stock and tomato paste and simmer for one hour.
  • As soon as all of the liquid has been absorbed, it is ready. Split the mixture into four earthenware pots. Spread a layer of the potato puree on top of each pot (as thick or thin as you want) and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for approximately 15 minutes, until the surface is golden and bubbling. Let the dish rest at room temperature for approximately 10 minutes and serve.
