  1. One tablespoon of olive oil
  2. One spoonful of butter
  3. Two pounds of ground lamb that is lean
  4. One chopped onion
  5. ⅓ cup flour for all purposes
  6. three minced garlic cloves
  7. One tablespoon of ketchup
  8. two tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary
  9. One teaspoon of paprika
  10. ⅛ teaspoon of cinnamon powder
  11. To taste, add salt and ground black pepper.
  12. 1/2 cup water, or more if necessary
  13. One 12-oz box of thawed frozen peas and carrots
  14. Two and a half pounds of peeled and cut Yukon Gold potatoes
  15. ¼ pound of shredded Irish cheese (like Dubliner)
  16. Half a cup of cream cheese
  17. One spoonful of butter
  18. One dash of cayenne pepper, ground
  19. One sizable yolk from an egg
  20. two teaspoons of milk


Step 1:

Set the oven’s temperature to 375°F, or 190°C.

Step 2:

In a Dutch oven, combine butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and ground lamb, and cook and stir for approximately ten minutes, or until the meat is crumbly and brown.

Step 3:

Add the flour and stir until well combined. Stir in the garlic, ketchup, cinnamon, paprika, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes, or until the garlic becomes aromatic.

Step 4:

Scrape up any brown pieces from the Dutch oven’s bottom as you stir in the water. The mixture should be simmered for five to six minutes, stirring occasionally, after the heat is reduced to medium-low.

Step 5:

After taking the lamb mixture from the stove, toss in the carrots and peas.

Step 6:

Line the bottom of a 9 by 13-inch baking dish with the lamb mixture; reserve.

Step 7:

Put potatoes in a big saucepan of water that has been seasoned. After bringing to a boil, lower the heat to medium and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until tender. Replace the potatoes in the saucepan after thorough draining.

Step 8:

Add the cayenne pepper, butter, cream cheese, and Irish cheese to the potatoes and mash until smooth. Put some salt and black pepper over it.

Step 9:

In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolk and milk, then incorporate them into the mashed potato mixture.

Step 10:

Mashed potatoes should be evenly placed over the lamb mixture in the baking dish to cover.

Step 11:

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in a preheated oven, or until the top is golden brown and the sauce is bubbling around the edges.
