This should not be called a Shepherds Pie ... a Shepherds Pie is made with Lamb ... hence the name SHEPHERD This is sacrilege & an insult to the Irish

Super simple to make. I added extra vegetables, and didn't broil. Will definitely make again.

Shepherds Pie is made with Lamb hence the name Shepherd. Cottage pie is made withBeef. I’m sure this “Cottage Pie” is good

I use mild seasoning because that's what my family prefers. If you aren't a fan of the prepackaged stuff, Taste of Home has a recipe for homemade that is fantastic. I also used 2 tablespoons of minced dried onion instead of fresh. My son gave this two thumbs up, my husband went back for seconds. Leftovers reheated well the next day. It would be easy to make up the meat mixture and freeze it for a future meal as well.

My family absolutely loved this! Could use ground lamb for a more traditional pie but this was awesome! Will make it over and over.

I'm not a real fan of ground beef unless it's a burger, but this was a great dish for those that do like ground beef in recipes. Husband liked this a lot. I used leftover stuffed cabbage mixture instead of taco seasoning and it turned out very good. Will be making this again.

My two-year-old son who is very picky at dinner had to helpings of this! It was delicious and full of flavor. Next time I think I will add corn into the beef mixture. I used garlic powder instead of fresh garlic.

LOL and what are left over mashed potatoes? I never have those as left overs.But this is good anyway even if I have to make the mashed potatoes.

This is a wonderful recipe! I made it for my family to help my mom and I did not need any help. I have made it 2 times now and the second time I added one bag of microwavable mixed veggies. I also used instant mashed potatoes. Also, the broiling is optional if you don't care about it looking professional. I used 2 lbs. of beef to make it feed 6 instead of four and used garlic powder instead of cloves. It was a great, quick dish for a teen to make after a busy day!
