Zippy Shepherd's Pie Recipe
Gather the family round with this quick and easy shepherd's pie recipe. The meat mixture can be made ahead and frozen. You can also substitute instant potatoes for the real thing if you're in a hurry. I especially love to use white cheddar in this recipe!
I made Shepherd's pie for my husband and 16 month old for the first time tonight using this recipe...they both loved it! I thought it was good too. I omitted the tomato and red pepper, because I did not have on hand, and added some precooked ground pork sausage. I put in the full amount of curry and thought it really added something to the dish. This was fairly easy, and very tasty. My husband had seconds and asked me to make it with double the meat next time (?) Not sure I will do that but at least he wants to have it again :-) Thanks for a great recipe!
Lord have mercy this was good! I followed the recipe, except for substituting the "package" of peas & carrots for 1 can peas/carrots and 1 can creamed corn. I topped the beef/carrot mixture with the can of creamed corn once in the casserole dish, I didn't heat together in the skillet; The creamed corn tasted like heaven mixed with the saltiness from the Soy Sauce and tang from the Worcestershire. Do try! I had a similar dish at The Shed Brewery in Stowe, VT. However, they top theirs with Cabot Sharp White Cheddar. I recommend using this if you have access to it (in the specialty cheese section @ your grocery store). I ended up using medium cheddar and it was fabulous- but will definitely splurge next time on Cabot Sharp White Cheddar!
