In early cookery books, the dish was a means of using leftover roasted meat of any kind, and the pie dish was lined with mashed potato as well as having a mashed potato crust on top.

The term “shepherd’s pie” did not appear until 1877, and since then it has been used synonymously with “cottage pie”, regardless of whether the principal ingredient was beef or mutton. Folk etymology has led to the term “shepherd’s pie” being used when the meat is lamb, as shepherds are concerned with sheep and not cattle..

In context:
When a food is considered devilled, it is typically prepared to be either spicy, rich, or both at once. Devilled ham is certainly one of the best known devilled foods, but others include devilled eggs, devilled crabs, and devilled shrimp. Foods are made devilled by adding spices and peppers to create the desired flavour; while dozens of recipes exist for making devilled hams, many cooks do not follow an exact recipe, but instead add spices and peppers to the ham until they feel the taste is correct. The specialized ham was originally meant to be a meat spread, but some other popular uses include serving it as a dip or using it as filling in tiny pastry shells served as hors d’oeuvres.
