    I loved this recipe and I found it quite easy to put together. I would make this again.

    This was very good! We are not a mushroom family, so I subbed peas.

    This was pretty good. The mushrooms gave the pie a nice, earthy taste. I love the addition of the white cheddar cheese in the mashed potatoes! Served with a fresh green salad.

    Very hearty, delicious meal that's easy to put together. I prepared as written except used sharp cheddar (not white) and dried herbs. Even our daughter who doesn't love mushrooms really liked this. It had a beefy, earthy flavor that was a nice change from some "shepherd's pie" recipes that use frozen mixed veggies. I did serve buttered peas on the side for some green. Will definitely make again.

    This was a fantastic weeknight meal. I added a little worcestershire to the broth to "beef" it up some more and omitted the cheese due to dairy allergy. This was perfect comfort food for a chilly autumn night. GREAT way to use extra mashed potatoes. Will add peas next time.

    I added frozen peas, also. I used shredded turkey breast. I had a lot so used a full can of beef broth. I think I will add all of the cheese to the top vs. mixing half in the potatoes for a better crust. Very good and relatively simple to make.

    Good recipe. I used ground chicken instead of beef and I had to add a little more beef broth but other than that I followed the recipe to a "T". I'm Irish so I'm used to the traditional "shephards pie" recipes but this was nice for a shake up. Would feed 4 or 6 easily as it is very filling.

    This recipe was super easy to make (even if you don't have leftover mashed potatoes - they can cook while you're prepping the meat mixture) and yummy! My husband loved it too. It even got better with age and the leftovers were even more flavorful. Loved the addition of the white cheddar cheese in the potatoes!

    We enjoyed this, as well as our friends. Since I had a thawed chuck roast, I braised that along with some onions and garlic and used that instead of the ground beef. I also put all of the cheese on top of the potatoes an broiled for a nice crust. The potatoes seemed to melt into the beef and veggie mixture and didn't stay separate like the picture showed. I also added peas along with the other vegetables. My friend wants the recipe. I would make again.

    This was an excellent shepherd's pie. The beef mixture did seem to be missing something, so I added a drained can of diced tomatoes, and that did the trick. I might add additional veggies in the future. But overall, it was very flavorful. Broiling the cheese on top was a delicious idea.

    I enjoyed the spin on our family's "traditional shepard's pie". I will definately make again.

    I made this for a British style murder mystery that I was hosting. It was a huge hit. Plus it makes great leftovers. The mashed potatoes soak up all the juice and taste so wonderful. I have made it several times since just so I can have great leftovers to take to work for lunch. P.S. I am not a mushroom fan so I left those out.

    Hubby and I thought this was delicious. Didn't add any sallt when making the mashed potatoes but added when eating which did the trick. Will add more veggies when make the next time. A definite repeat.

    This cottage pie was absolutely delicious! I like a lot of veggies, so I added a cup of peas (thawed) and doubled the carrots and mushrooms. Will be a keeper!!

    This was a very tastey, kid friendly meal. I didn't give it 5 stars because I had to add more ingredients to kick up the flavor but other than that this dish is a keeper.
