Using the new King of Britain's favourite ingredients (lamb, mushrooms, cheese and eggs), Chat GPT fashioned a semi passable recipe. Albeit one with an inexplicable layer of cheesy scrambled egg between the lamb mix. Substituting leftover roast lamb for the lamb mince, stirring a bit of flour into the mix and beating the eggs and cheese into the mash, we proved that although AI can serve up a passable dinner, it still needs a helping hand from us.


Preheat the oven to 375°F.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, and sauté until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes.

Add the sliced mushrooms and cook until softened and lightly browned. Add tomato paste and flour, stirring and cooking for another 2 minutes or so. Slowly add beef or lamb broth, and Worcestershire sauce to the skillet. Stir to combine, and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and let the mixture simmer for 10-15 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened and the mushrooms are tender.

Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Spread the lamb and mushroom mixture evenly in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish.

Stir the grated cheese into the mash along with the eggs and season liberally before spreading over the lamb mix. Brush the top with butter.

Bake the shepherd's pie in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the filling is hot and bubbly.

Serve hot and enjoy!
