The name “cottage pie” was first used at the end of the 18th century. It was around that time that the poorer people of Britain, people who lived in cottages in the country, started using potatoes as everyday food. Then, pies made this way were very popular because they were economical, today they are popular because they are easy, economical and delicious.
