How To Store Shepherds Pie In The Fridge

The best way to store leftover shepherd’s pie is in a Tupperware container. Once you have separated the food to an airtight container, transfer it to your refrigerator.

Shepherds pie will last up to five days in your refrigerator.

How To Store Shepherds Pie In The Freezer

Wrap your shepherds pie in tin foil and then place in an airtight, freezer safe container before placing it in your freezer. It will keep in your freezer for up to two months.

How To Reheat Shepherds Pie

You can reheat your shepherds pie in the oven or the microwave. The oven will retain the most flavor and offer the best texture but the microwave is great when you don’t have enough time to use the oven method.

Preheat your oven to 425 F (221 C).

Place your reheated pie on a foil-lined baking dish. Place in the oven and heat for 15-20 minutes.

After the time is up, remove from the oven and serve piping hot with your favorite sides.

If reheating in the microwave, cook on high for 3 minutes. Remove and stir, then cook for another 3 minutes. If more time is needed, continue heating in 3 minute intervals until desired temperature is reached.

How To Tell If Shepherds Pie Has Gone Bad

The best way to determine if your shepherds pie has gone bad is by smell. If the food has gone bad, it will have a sour odor mixed with the normal smell of it.

Still unsure? Take the food out and inspect it for any changes in color or texture. This can help ease your mind if it still doesn’t feel like its gone bad.

Bottom Line

Shepherds pie will last five days in the refrigerator and two months in the freezer. It can be reheated in the oven or microwave. Shepherds pie can be stored in a Tupperware container, sealable plastic bag or an airtight, freezer safe container.
