MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 7, 2012

I added some gravy and veggies and pretty much made sheppards pie in a potatoe skin shell. Viola. No leftovers.

This was so easy to prepare and tasted great. I served it with red skin mashed potatoes and a vegetable. My husband really enjoyed it as well. It is a keeper.

I really enjoy this meal. It has everything my family likes. I make it with the real bacon bits instead of frying up bacon.
