This inspired twist on shepherd's pie is crowned with a golden-edged sweet potato topping everyone will love. To prevent messy spillovers, place your ramekins on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet before sliding them into the oven.

  • Portion size 4 servings
  • Credits : Canadian Living Magazine: November 2013


  • 3 cups Slow Cooker Shredded Pork
  • 1 cup bottled strained tomatoes (passata)
  • 1 carrots grated
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1 tablespoon fancy molasses
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Sweet Potato Mash:
  • 675 g sweet potatoes (about 3 small)
  • 4 teaspoons butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper


Sweet Potato Mash: Using fork, prick sweet potatoes all over. Microwave on high, turning once, until fork-tender, about 5 minutes. Let cool enough to handle. Peel sweet potatoes; mash together potato flesh, green onion, butter, salt and pepper.

Stir together pork, strained tomatoes, carrot, peas, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Spoon mixture into four 1-cup (250 mL) ramekins.

Spoon sweet potato mash over pork mixture; sprinkle with cheese.
Make-ahead: Let cool. Cover and refrigerate for up to  2 days; add 40 minutes to baking time.

Bake on baking sheet in 350 F (180 C) oven until filling is hot and bubbly, about 40 minutes.

Test Kitchen Tip -Speed It Up: Make this simple weeknight hit even faster (and easier) by topping it with leftover mashed potatoes instead of whipping up the sweet potato mash.
