I was pretty excited when “How to Disappear Completely” won the Radiohead inspired poll because while you all were voting, I had this idea down from the get go. Any idea what’s going on with this dish? Any idea what disappeared?
Shepherd’s pie is one of my favorite dishes to cook. It’s simple, hearty, and extremely comforting. My versions are never the same but always include a bevy of veggies (carrots, peas, swiss chard, onions, and mushrooms in this one) and some tender meat to add some substance. But this was by far the most unique version I’ve ever made. By baking these individual shepherd’s pie in the same vain as a “chocolate lava cake” the overall taste was just as good as the effect. Cracking into the layer of mashed potatoes and unleashing the delicious filling was so awesome that there was a second disappearance. Because it only took a few seconds to devour this one!
