Shepherd’s Pie Loaded Fries

 

Alas, Saint Patrick’s Day is amongst us, and it wouldn’t be the same unless we Americanized some type of traditional food.

 

Irish food is all about comfort…and potatoes.

 

So I hunted down something simple as the foundation for my recipe. Although it should be versatile and quick to work with, I also needed something high quality and all natural.

Alexia french fries
Found these at Walmart. I liked the crinkle cut fries, perfect for holding ingredients and seasoned with only sea salt.

You can use any of these varieties, though:

 

Anyhoo, with easy french fries in hand, I decided to load them up. Make a cheesy, hearty shepherd’s pie loaded fries. Sort of deconstruct the classic dish into an easy party plate. You know, so I can focus more on drinking things colored green and such.

-3/4 lbs natural lamb boneless (for stew)

Tips:
-Lamb gets tough quickly so do not overcook and serve immediately.
– Keep gravy on lowest heat and cover with a lid to keep it at a good consistency and to prevent lumps. Keep in mind that even the lowest heat setting will still cause to thicken a bit. Stop cooking gravy a little before it is at the right thickness for you, as it will thicken while being kept warm on low heat, and while cooling off.
– Have all ingredients ready to top before melting cheese. Top and serve immediately after melting for best results.
