Large Non-Stick Pan
8x8" Baking Dish
Large Bowl


Make mashed potatoes
  • Peel, then cut potatoes into 1-inch pieces.
  • Add potatoes, 2 tsp salt and enough water to cover (by approx. 1 inch) to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Meanwhile, strip a few thyme leaves from stems, then finely chop 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp).
  • Once potatoes are boiling, reduce heat to medium-high. Simmer, uncovered, until fork-tender, 10-12 min.
  • Drain and return potatoes to the same pot, off heat. Mash 2 tbsp (4 tbsp) butter and 1/4 cup (1/2 cup) milk into potatoes until creamy. Season with salt and pepper.
Cook mushrooms
  • Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • While the pan heats, thinly slice mushrooms.
  • When the pan is hot, add 1 1/2 tbsp (3 tbsp) butter, then swirl the pan until melted.
  • Add mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer mushrooms to a plate.
Start filling
  • Return the same pan to medium-high.
  • When hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) butter, then swirl the pan until melted.
  • Add bison and mirepoix. Cook, breaking up bison into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.** Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add 1 tsp (2 tsp) thyme and tomato sauce base. Sprinkle Gravy Spice Blend into the pan. Cook, stirring often, until bison and mirepoix are coated, 30 sec.
  • Add mushrooms, broth concentrate, 1 cup (2 cups) water, 1/2 tsp (1 tsp) vinegar and 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) sugar to the pan with beef and mirepoix. Cook, stirring often, until filling is combined and comes to a simmer.
Assemble and bake pie
  • Once filling is simmering, cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens slightly, 1-2 min. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer filling to an 8x8-inch baking dish (9x13-inch for 4 ppl).
  • Spread mashed potatoes in an even layer over filling.
  • Sprinkle cheese evenly over top, then sprinkle with as much remaining thyme as desired.
  • Bake cottage pie in the middle of the oven until filling is bubbling around the sides, 12-14 min. (TIP: For a golden top, turn the oven to broil and move the pie to the top of the oven to broil, 1-2 min. Keep an eye on the pie so it doesn't burn!)
Make salad
  • Meanwhile, cut tomato into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • Add remaining vinegar, 1 1/2 tbsp (3 tbsp) oil and 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) sugar to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then whisk to combine.
  • When cottage pie is done, add spinach and tomatoes to the bowl with vinaigrette, then toss to combine.
Finish and serve
  • Allow pie to cool for 2-3 min before serving.
  • Divide cottage pie between plates.
  • Serve salad alongside.
