Lorraine's chunky beef mix add heartiness to this quick comforting supper. To give this flavorful shepherd's pie a pretty look, pipe on the mashed potatoes using a large star tip.

"When I was growing up my mom would make this with leftovers. She would make extra potatoes, vegetables during the week & double her usual meat loaf recipe.
