Two-Tater Shepherd’s Pie

I love shepherd's pie, but our oldest son, Andrew, doesn't like some of the ingredients. So I adjusted my recipe to come up with this version the whole family loves. —Cindy Rebain, Robertsdale, Alabama

    It's only "Shepherd's" pie if it's made with ... what do Shepherd's have ... sheep! So it's only "Shepherd's" pie if it's made with lamb. If made with beef or anything else, it's called a "Cottage" Pie. I happen to like corn, peas and/or carrots in mine so I swap out the veggies. Green beans are okay in soups or stews with me, but not in my "pies"!
