This looks like a solid recipe but it can't truly be a Shepherd's pie without lamb. This should be titled a Cottage Pie.
Made this for a cozy evening with friends by the fire and it was perfection. Nothing about it tasted "light" and everyone was impressed. This will definitely end up as a fall staple.
My entire family liked this dish. Delicious comfort food! We got 10 servings out of it, loved the leftovers too!
Easy and delicious. Everyone requested that I make this one again.
I made this pretty much in line with the recipe. Added a tad more garlic and some paprika in the meat mixture. I used cornstarch to thicken per the recipe and 2 tsp. was perfect. My husband loved it. Since there are only 2 of us at home I made two smaller casseroles and froze one uncooked. Glad I did.
It was so good! I went a little heavy on the peas and Worcestershire. The onions on top got a little crispy which gave it a delicious crunch. I was unsure what "freeze dried onion" was, but I used the ones in the attached pic. I thickened with flour (2 TABLEspoons) or 3 times as much. Will def. make again and again!
My partner makes an amazing shepherds pie that takes 5 hours, uses every dish in the kitchen, and costs $25. This is not that dish, BUT it is fast and tasty and leftovers heat up well. Will go in the rotation the weeks pre-prepared potatoes are on sale.
I made this last night and it was delicious! I substituted the pre-made mashed potatoes for homemade red potatoes. http://determinedwwmomma.blogspot.com
