Welcome to What’s On Your Plate?!

What’s on Your Plate? is designed to be a conversation amongst good eaters.

Tell us about a recent meal. Did it meet with rave reviews? Or did it bomb? What side dishes did you pair with the star of the show? Did you try a new ingredient? Find the groceries at great prices?

Share what’s on your plate!

Each week a featured foodie* will share his or her plate and then the rest of us will get a chance to link up our own posts or share in the comments what good cheap eats we’ve been enjoying.

What’s on Rebecca’s Plate?

There are probably as many ways to make Cottage Pie as there are families who eat it. I think I probably even make it differently every time myself depending on my mood, or what we have in the kitchen.

While traditional recipes often have an unfairly bad reputation, Cottage Pie is wonderfully versatile and easy to make. In my opinion, it’s also one of the best comfort foods for when the weather begins to cool down.

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever made a Cottage or Shepherd’s Pie, it looks good. As always, thanks for hosting!

  2. I like your name for it better! Cottage Pie sounds delicious, we just chuck it all in a pan and call it a casserole! 🙂 Sounds wonderful and very comforting, thanks!

  3. Wow, this looks delicious. I don’t make a whole lot of casserole-type things (only 2 of us and a baby), but between this post and the Beans & Rice series we’re doing at The Cheapskate Cook, I’m totally ready for more comfort food!

    • @Steph @ The Cheapskate Cook, I actually forgot to mention when submitting this, but it freezes really well too. There’s only the 2 of us and a toddler in my family… so we’re in the same boat with the casserole type dishes. I generally end up freezing half of this when I make it. When you want to eat it just defrost and reheat.
