View Full Version : Cottage Pies using Buffalo Meat

I didn't start off with the idea of doing these.
My neighbor came over to the house carrying a small bag from the grocery store. She said here, I thought you might like this, if not throw it out. I asked why and she said she bought it by mistake. I looked inside and it was a pound of ground buffalo meat.
I started thinking( I know, smoke cloud formed over my head ) not really enough for some big burgers, then the light-bulb went on. Make Cottage Pies.

Browning the meat. Once done browning, drain, & set aside

Sauteing the onion, minced garlic, celery, & green pepper til softened

Add in some sweet peas and small diced carrots. Cook another 5 minutes

Add back in the drained meat and mix everything together

Added in some veggie stock, then dusted with flour, mixed everything, & then simmer til stock has thickened to desired consistency

After the mixture has cooled a little, I filled the individual Ramekins with the mixture

While the meat & veggie mixture was cooking I boiled some potatoes to make mashed potatoes
Mixture in the Ramekins was topped off with the mashed potatoes and dusted with CBP

One Ramekin was covered and put in the fridge for a lunch at a later date.
The other two Ramekins had a large pat of butter put on top of the mashed potatoes, then covered with shredded colby-jack cheese.
The Ramekins were then put in a preheated oven to warm back up & melt the cheese

Hot out of the oven
