Last week, Michael and I celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with this delicious shepherd’s pie and an oatmeal stout (this one). Shepherd’s pie is a classic comfort food, and I was really happy with how this recipe turned out — I only made a few small changes to the original.
I first shared this kofta recipe a couple summers ago, and since then, it’s become one of our favorites. These koftas are quick, delicious, and versatile — you can make them out of ground beef, lamb, or turkey.
I often serve them sandwich-style in pita pockets with cucumbers, tomatoes, and feta cheese, but you can also serve them over rice. I’ve also used this recipe to make burgers a couple times — it’s a delicious option if you’re looking for something a little different from a traditional hamburger!
