  3. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. If desired, sprinkle with paprika.
    Freeze option: Freeze cooled shepherd's pies in a single layer in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Bake on a baking sheet in a preheated 375° oven 15-18 minutes or until heated through.
