A Dutch Spin on Sheppard's Pie

After a couple days of eating out and shrinking wallets, we decided to stay at home and make dinner. Sandra suggested a Dutch dish from her Grandma's recipes. I soon realized that she was making Sheppard's pie - but with one surprise - apples and cinnamon!

The pictures don't do this meal justice. It was surprisingly delicious!

Here's the recipe for anyone who's interested in trying it:

Mashed potatoes
Snow peas (finely chopped)
Ground beef
Salt & Pepper
Shredded mozzarella cheese

Pre-heat oven to 350F (180C)
Grease casserole dish with butter or oil
Marinate the beef with some salt and pepper
Add oil to frying pan and cook the ground beef over medium heat until brown 
Spread the cooked meat on the bottom of the casserole (first layer)
Add the snow peas on top (second layer)
Peel and cut apples into thin/medium slices 
Layer sliced apples on top of snow peas (third layer)
Sprinkle some cinnamon on top of the apples
Add mashed potatoes on top of the apples (final layer)
Sprinkle some shredded cheese on top

Place in oven and cook for 20-25 minutes. 

Eet Smakelijk!
