French Onion Shepherd’s Pie
Total TimePrep: 45 min. Bake: 30 min.
My husband and I have fairly sophisticated tastes and we love highly seasoned food. I was a bit leery of this recipe, fearing it might be a bit bland and boring but have to say we absolutely LOVED it! It's the ultimate in comfort food. Don't change a thing. Thanks, Jennifer for submitting this incredibly delicious recipe!
YUM! Thanks for posting. This was a win of a recipe. The whole family enjoyed. Loved the worcestershire sauce, I'd double that ingredient next time. Comforting dish.
Just made tonight and thought it was wonderful! I cook all the time and am pretty picky. I did use half spicy brown mustard and half yellow mustard. I also added about 1/2 TBSP more of Worcestershire. I used Swiss & Gruyere combo cheese for the top. I will definitely make again, yummy!
This recipe was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly except I used "Bob Evans mashed potatoes" - therefore I only had 2 cups of mashed potatoes but found that was plenty.
Shepherds pie is made with lamb, not beef. If you use beef it’s a “”Cottage Pie”.
I have not even completed the preparation of this dish and I already really like it! I sprinkled a teaspoon of sugar over the sliced onions to hasten the caramelization process, and I added half a bag of frozen "parrots and keys" (diced carrots and green peas) to the hamburger mixture just to give it a little color. Tomorrow I'll spread the mashed potatoes over the beef and sprinkle it all with the cheese and bake it. Grated Gouda was on sale so I got that instead of Swiss. I may change my mind after letting the beef layer sit in the fridge overnight, but I'm thinking now that the amounts of Worcestershire, brandy and mustard could be bumped up just a bit.
