Let me tell you, this is not the shepherd’s pie you grew up with. Technically it’s actually a cottage pie since it’s made with ground beef rather than lamb (I also added pork sausage but we’ll get to that). All I’m saying is that if you’re looking for a cottage pie, reinvented with elevated flavors, this is for you. My kids even asked for seconds, and Julia excitedly ate leftovers for days.

What sets this recipe aside from traditional cottage pies is the addition of the ground pork sausage, along with plenty of flavorful vegetables! Rutabaga, cauliflower, fennel, and sweet potato that bring out the best in each other. So delicious, but also feel free to grab whatever root vegetables you might have on hand! I’ll definitely be making more of this now that I know it was such a hit with the fam.
Made this tonight for my family. Everyone loved it! Keep these great recipes coming!
This recipe is fantastic. I couldn’t find rutabaga so I used parsnips. The mix of spices is fantastic! And the addition of the pork takes it to the next level. I did do my own regular mashed potato recipe since my family isn’t dairy free. But other than that I followed the recipe exactly and we loved it. Thank you Chris. You knocked it out of the park on this one.
So delicious! This tasty pie went fast— and I’m already craving another! Thank you for this
This looks fantastic! I will be trying this soon!
This looks so yummy and I am thinking even my fussy eater will love this recipe.
Question- cannot get rutabaga locally. What can I substitute??
*to clarify in my first comment-turnips are not in our markets here. Don’t know why….Sad face.
Thank you, Chris! Appreciate so very much the GF, DF recipe! This looks so yummy!
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

We recently painted our study a dark, moody green color. This is after we first painted it a muddy green, then repainted it a blue-gray. I guess what they say is true; third time’s a charm! The journey was worth it, though, because I’m so in love with this glossy green in contrast with the […]
