This recipe is one of the most traditional, common and day –by-day recipe here in Argentina, the name is potato pie Contrary to Argentine belief, this traditional and comfort dish, in fact is English, because, as you see, just reading the recipe, is so similar to Sheppard’s pie, but remember Sheppard’s pie is made with lab if you made with beef would be known as cottage pie. Name aside, this dish is very comforting and delicious. If you like you can add raisin, as they do here. For the pure I usually melt butter and sauté onions. It works so well Cottage Pie
