I’m sure this recipe is absolutely delicious and I might try it, but it’s not Lancashire HotPot! Try it just once with just the lamb (preferably neck or chump), onions, potatoes and stock. No herbs, no other vegetables and enjoy, it truly is wonderful, and tastes and smells like nothing else. The one above probably smells and tastes lovely but not of Lancashire HotPot. Garlic and herbs and sherry - my grandparents and parents etc must be spinning in their graves
