This recipe is dead easy to make and can be made from whatever leftovers you have. The sweet potato mash is lovely with the parmesan cheese. Bonus novelty factor for my kids when they eat out of a ramekin!

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 200g minced beef
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • 1 zucchini, grated
  • 1 sweet potato, mashed
  • parmesan cheese


  1. Cook sweet potato in boiling water until tender, then mash. Set aside.
  2. In a frypan, cook minced beef until browned. Add the carrot and zucchini and cook for another 3 minutes.
  3. Scoop the beef mixture into a small ramekin. Top with mashed sweet potato and then sprinkle parmesan cheese on top.
  4. You can either pop the ramekin in the oven on 200C for a few minutes to melt the cheese on top or just serve as is.


The ramekin on the left shows you the mince mixture prior to the sweet potato mash scooped on top.

  • Sounds like what I make I add a little nutmeg with the cheese on top.


  • Your pies look very inviting! Thanks!


  • I like the cute individual serves and the sweet potato topping.


  • My mum used to make shepherds pie on a Monday, using leftover meat from the Sunday roast. I wish I had that recipe now as I’ve never seen one that uses leftover roast meat. Never seen sweet potato mash topping before


  • Love little pies in ramekins! Delicious looking recipe.


  • Cottage Pie, how delicious and nutritious


  • Sweet mashed potato that is an awesome idea.


  • Ah look so delicious. And nutricious as well.


  • Super easy to make and my BLW baby loves feeling part of the family for dinner times ! Thanks for sharing


  • individual serves are winners in our home – kids feel grown up


  • But too plain for me. I would have to shoosh it up with more flavours to suit my household. Love the sweet potato and Parmesan topping


  • Ooh nice one. Nutritious and delicious!


  • This is so simple and it sounds delicious. Another recipe to try out. Can’t wait


  • I would love these but my youngest is such a fusspot that the sweetpotato wouldnt fly with her. I would have to switch it to plain potato *rolls my eyes*
