The creamy mashed potatoes and tuscan seasoning with the ground beef in this cottage pie will be sure to warm you up on a cold day! Use the Lucky Iron Fish to add a boost of iron when simmering the seasoning. 



  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • Add potatoes to a medium pot of cold water and bring to a boil
  • Add 1⁄2 tsp. of salt. Reduce to medium heat and cook until tender, 10-15 minutes
  • Drain the potatoes, reserving 1⁄2 cup of the cooking water in a small bowl
  • Return the potatoes to the pot and cook over low heat for a minute to remove excess water
  • Mash with a fork, or a potato masher, adding 1⁄4 cup cooking water along with 1.5 tablespoon butter and 1⁄4 cup yogurt. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Beat with a wooden spoon until fluffy
  • Prepare the vegetables and beef by heating 1 tbsp. of oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-low
  • Once hot, add the onion, carrot, and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 15 minutes.
  • Increase the heat to medium and add the ground beef. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring and breaking it up with a wooden spoon, stirring for even coloration
  • While beef is cooking, mix the remaining 1⁄4 cup of cooking water with bouillon cube. Whisk until well mixed. Add Lucky Iron Fish. 
  • Add the stock, green peas, Tuscan Spice Mix, and pepper
  • Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 5-10 minutes. Remove Lucky Iron Fish (wash & dry), and allow the meat to cool slightly
  • Arrange pie by spreading the meat and vegetables evenly along the bottom of the oven-safe skillet
  • Spread the mashed potatoes over the top
  • Chop the remaining 1⁄2 tbsp butter into small pieces and scatter over the top
  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned and heated all the way through, 30-35 minutes
  • Allow to cool slightly before serving
