Fast Shepherd's Pie

    Easy to prepare and I think that the fresh herbs added depth and a fresh flavor to this fast meal. I think lamb is pricey which makes this dish a bit more expensive than I would to spend on one dish.

    Yum, really hit the spot on a cold winters night. Like the other reviewers, the next time I make this I will add a little salt to taste and I will substitute with ground lamb since a package of 4 lamb chops at my grocery is $11. Overall I will definitely make this again.

    Easy to prepare. Our Whole Foods was out of lamb so we used lean ground Bison. This is a low sodium recipe. As we are not watching our salt intake, we did up the salt a bit. I think next time I will use fat free sour cream in the mashed potatoes instead of milk as the potatoes lacked that decadent, creamy texture and taste that would compliment the richness of the meat. This is a great recipe!

    Very easy to prepare and fast. I was surprised how flavorful it was, considering its simple prep. I would make again with lamb or even venison.

    Excellent dish! We don't eat potatoes so I topped it with mashed parsnips. I fixed it ahead and baked at 350° for 45 minutes. We will be eating it again, although I probably won't use lamb any more.

    Wow! This was delicious! Like some reviewers have suggested, I used ground lamb ($10/lb difference in price). Probably was a little fattier, but boy it was tasty. WHEN I make this again, I may scale up by 1/2 everything but the potatoes just to have a little more leftovers...

    This is a great easy dinner. I used ground beef in place of the lamb because my local grocery didn't have lamb today. Family loved it. Will make again soon.

    Made this for an easy weeknight dinner. Had to make a couple adaptations to make it lighter on the wallet and gluten-free. I used a heaping tablespoon of corn starch in place of the flour (gluten-free) and a half-pound of 97% lean ground beef in place of the lamp chops (half the price). Everything else I kept exactly the same, and both me and my S.O. loved it! If you're making this with beef, I recommend using a jammy merlot, as it will pair perfectly with your meal. If you're used to more robust flavors from ethnic food, throw in a few cloves of minced garlic in with the onions. I'll definitely be making this again! :-)
