Info
I have been on a bit of a comfort food binge this summer. I was searching for a recipe to bring shepherd’s pie to the grill. While I didn’t have much success with shepherd’s pie I did find a recipe for Shepherd’s Pie Burgers. Now what is more comfort food than that? The burgers used carrots, onions & kernel corn which was finely diced & sauteed. The other seasonings for the patties was Worcestershire sauce, salt & pepper. With all of the diced ingredients in the meat plus Worcestershire sauce, they were somewhat soft - a sure sign you need to spend extra time getting the grill grates oiled. Once the burgers were flipped they were topped with some garlic mashed potatoes, followed by sharp cheddar cheese. These burgers were very tasty and were extremely filling I had debated on making one each or two each for folks and I was very glad I did the single batch. They definitely captured the essence of a shepherd’s pie and made for a great burger to boot.
