  • I just do it the "normal" way lay ground beef on bottom of casserole dish, top with corn (cream corn is really yummy with it!) then add layer of mashed potatoes. Sometimes we sprinkle some cheese (parm usually) on the top of it all. Add things to the potatoes if you'd like sometimes I cook broc then puree it & mix with the potatoes you could do that with any veggie. SO's mom adds in greenbeans etc to her shepards pie. Play around with it, google up some interesting mashed potatoe recpies & try those in your pie as well! Go wild have fun with it!

  • Nothing Special... come from a family where all males go into the military, and they serve it in mess halls!

    Make mashed potatoes, sprinkle corn, and the hamburger meat with brown gray...

  • mmmm A1 sauce is a good idea!
    i add an organic brown gravy mix to the beef, and green peas, and i top with mashed sweet potatoes, i would top with heaps of cheese, but my family won't eat it if i do!

  • Shepherd's Pie IS MADE ONLY WITH LAMB or sheep meat! Anything else IS NOT Shepherd's Pie!!!!
