Reviews for Simple Shepherd's Pie
"Needs a bit more seasoning. I'm going to try it with the rote that dblbogey49 mentioned and maybe add some Mexican spices to it. I like using the packets of instant mashed potatoes made by Idahoan I think when I don't feel like making mashed or have any leftovers. But, if it's not made with lamb (hence the word Shepherd), it's called a "Cottage" pie."
"Very easy to make and you can use any vegetables you like, I also added minced garlic about a 1/4 teas. Will certainly made this one again and again."
"Yum . . . I used canned corn, peas, carrots, Rotel and beef gravy with instant mashed potatoes. I will be making this again!"
"This is a quick and easy recipe! I used some leftover ground veal and added some cubed and sauteed mushrooms along with the veggies. Started fixing it at 4, we were eating at 5."
"The Way I would make this is to simply take left over Beef Stew and put it in a large baking dish and put moist Mashed Potatoes on top n bake it for a hour with bisquits."
"Sorry, this is five stars!"
"I had never made Shepherd's Pie and tried this recipe. I didn't have canned gravy, so made my own using bouillion. I added celery, garlic, although I don't think I'd use garlic the next time. My husband and I really liked this and I will make it again."
"I subsituted green beans and tomato soup, added onions, instant potatoes on top and shredded cheese. Very good!"
"I added cheese to my and that make it the 5th star."
