Instead of using a pastry crust, this recipe creates a savory crust with mashed potatoes. The bacon flavor in the filling is fabulous! Just add a tossed salad or green vegetable and dessert, and you'll have a complete meal that's sure to please your family.—Chris Eschweiler, Dallas, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 27, 2014

Great. Everybody loves it. Have made multiple times. Used just regular corn because of picky eaters; used canned diced tomatoes for the tomato sauce and put grated cheddar - 50/50 white and yellow in the potatoes. I too sneak other fresh veggies in the mix if I have them. My non- veggie crew don't even know they are eating zucchini!!!

this dish was okay. my husband really liked it, but I didn't like the flavor that the mexicorn and bacon gave it. Good, but not my fav.

My family loved it! I made this in a casserole dish to accommodate my family's size/appetite and there was none left! They all agreed that I should make this recipe often!

My family loved this recipe. My daughter's especially loved that the crust was also potatoes, rather than most shepherd's pies, where the potatoes are on top. I've made this countless times and there are never any leftovers!

Bacon gives it a great taste!!! Will definitely make it again. Easy to make and my husband loved it, who is very picky eater. Best shepards pie we ever had.
