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.

Notes... The ramekin on the left shows you the mince mixture prior to the sweet potato mash scooped on top.
  • So very easy and healthy. Could also use Lamb if you wanted Shepherds pie. thanx.

    • Little pots of Shepherds’ pie sounds good Cherz!


  • They are adorable. I love topping also the shepherd’s pie with sweet potatoes. So much healthier than regular potatoes or pastry.


  • I like your idea of serving individual ones in the ramekins.


  • Easy and nice recipe plus who doesn’t love Sheppards pie! Winner on all accounts.


  • What an easy recipe and I think it will be a crowd pleaser


  • cheers for posting this. you have been making great contributions! thank you so much!


  • Thanks – we love individual little pots of food as they are good for a snack/lunch. This basic and tasty food always goes down a treat. :)


  • Nice one – I have never thought of making individual ones. Love it!


  • Simple, easy and what a treat for children to eat out of their very own ramekin. Winner all ways.

    • I saw how excited my kids got when they discovered the ramekins in the cupboard and I new I had to find a dinner to make in them. Winners all round!

      • wow i should get some. there are heaps of recipes that i see that use them.
