Reviews for Skillet Shepherd's Pie

"I made this the night before Thanksgiving Day I when I was plenty tired and had had enough dishes to wash during the day! I was so glad it could be served in the same skillet used to cook it in and not have to transfer to the oven like other Shepherd's Pies. I always use Yukon Gold potatoes to make mashed potatoes with--it really ratchets up the flavor. I do think, as another reviewer stated, that the meat/veggie mixture needed some salt added before the potatoes were spread on top."
"I haven't tried this but I'm giving it 5 stars for the idea alone, it sounds amazing. Thanks!!I don't use bullion, but will use beef broth in place of water . Can't wait till the leftover turkey is all gone to try this!!"
"excellent and easy"
"Good base recipe. Next time I will add seasoning. Needed salt, pepper, thyme and bay leaf. The sour cream made it very creamy. Next time I will stick with just the beef broth and put some sour cream in the potato. I did add celery and carrots."
"This is an exceptional Shepherd's Pie. The sour cream just adds a special richness and flavor almost like a Stroganoff. Never would I have ever thought to add sour cream to Shepherd's Pie filling. I add fresh thyme leaves to taste and as usual swap out the Worcestershire for steak sauce, no anchovies for me. As far as the veggies go I always use whatever I feel like, even Brussels sprouts once. I add a couple of bay leaves and fresh ground black pepper to my potato water when boiling and then when I mash them I add a packet of onion soup mix, butter and heavy cream are a must."
