SHEPHERD’S PIE WITH CREAMY RICE TOPPING

It’s a cold, windy winter’s day here in Melbourne today, so this Shepherd’s Pie sounds like the ideal meal for tonight.  This recipe is a bit different as the topping is rice, cheese and cream instead of the traditional potato. It comes from a Women’s Weekly Rice and Easy supplement Mum pulled out and kept back.

SPICY LAMB AND COUSCOUS PIE

This recipe comes from an Australian Women’s Weekly ‘Pies without Pastry’ liftout dated August 1994.  I love the first paragraph explaining what couscous is and where you can buy it.  It was obviously a very new ingredient back then, quite a contrast to how easy it is to find in every supermarket now.

GLAZED LAMB LOAF

Instead of using mince steak this meatloaf uses minced lamb and it’s other unusual ingredient is a container of potato salad.  Usually potato salad accompanies a meatloaf instead of being mixed in, but the potato and it’s mayonnaise dressing combined with the French onion soup mix make this a tasty change.
