Traditionally, shepherd's pie is prepared with ground lamb. If you were to prepare it with ground beef, it would no longer be shepherd's pie but cottage pie. If you topped either a shepherd's pie or cottage pie with cheese, it would be a Cumberland pie. But if you'd like to experiment with different flavors, don't let tradition stop you. There are several ways to spruce up your pie.
