"I was told to replace every meat loaf recipe that I have ever made (and I have made a ton of them) with this recipe for Shepard's pie. They really liked it. I just added a extra cup of veggies and a shot of soy sauce instead of the Worcestershire sauce which I don't care for. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my family did. PS.... I am not allowed to make meat loaf ever again. Nobody's recipe!!!"

"Definitely a keeper! Hubby had 2 servings, so did daughter. Used up all my leftovers, but had to add some instant potatoes, just didn't have enough of those. And instead of cheese, I topped it with French fried onions. Delish!"

"Good quick meal. I added cheddar cheese to the top of the potatoes. I made it for a late lunch, early dinner."
