Add a small can of tomato paste to the meat to keep it from falling apart, and it adds flavor to the meat, also my family sprinkles crushed fritos or french fried onions on top
Awesome recipe!I added barbecue sauce to the meat, creamed corn between the meat and potato layer and put sprinkled cheese on top. 5 stars
Amazing results… I added ketchup and brown suger mixed to pour over top then added cheese❤
This is one of my absolute favourite recipes to make…. easy and everyone loves it….I always mash in a couple sweet potatoes with the white potatoes, and shred cheese in it before putting on the top…. my husband also loves the cream corn layer on top of the beef… freezes well cooked or uncooked… have done both
I decided to try this recipe with some leftover mashed cauliflower that I had in the fridge, but I cut out the broth and added some A-1 sauce to the meat mixture, my fiancé liked it too!
I love it and it’s really good
I added some bacon bits to the grounded beef and sprinkled some on top with cheese
Used ground turkey, Mexican and Hungarian spices and peas under the potatoes.I Didn’t plan too well, but it turned delicious.
Shepherd’s pie is great for times when you *don’t* plan! Glad you made it delicious.
Perfect!! It’s become a weekly dinner lol thanks!!!
Didn’t do enough potatoes. Only my first time though
Beautiful & delicious so easy to prepare. Prepared double , no troubles only good food for family & friends.
Love it! It’s been a staple dinner recipe since about March
Added more seasoning and a hint of curry powder to cut the freshness since I didn’t have the Worcestershire sauce.
Everyone loved it!!
Will make again
What a great idea to add curry powder, thanks for sharing Nadea!
Excellent recipe! I used ground turkey for my non-red meat eating family and barbecue sauce instead of Worcestershire sauce. That gave the meat mixture a nice color and tangy taste.
What a great way to change it up, Chicago Bookworm, thanks for sharing!
Made this twice. My family loves it! Thank you
Just made it and ate it! Didn’t have the Worcestershire sauce but it tasted great anyway. We all went back for seconds. Thanks for sharing this simple delicious recipe.
I have made this so many times I think I’ve put my family off eating as I think I made it too many times but everytime I have made it it’s always gone down a treat but I have changed bits in it and put my own ingredients in it I have put 2 spoonfuls of tomato puree in it and sometimes I change it up and just put the mash on the plate and pour the mince & veg over the top so it’s an upside down shepherds pie lol mince and potatoes it’s always a bit!!
Fantastic, Shell! I love the “inverted” shepherd’s pie approach. Love also that you change it up a bit. This is a recipe that is perfect for experimentation.
Bland! No t worth the effort
Sorry this was bland for you. Since the recipe calls for salt and pepper to taste, I’m wondering if didn’t add enough to your taste. Making sure to taste the different components (potatoes, filling) and add ore seasoning, if needed, before assembling and baking the pie.
Are you familiar with shepherds pie? This is exactly how it’s supposed to taste. It’s an English dish and they aren’t exactly known for their exotic flavours. You can experiment with different seasonings to make it more enjoyable for you.
I sprinkle a bit of paprika over the potatoes just before baking, add a bit spice to the meal
I used instant red potatoes made it easier for me and it turned out wonder. It was a hit!!!!
Great Michelle! I know other readers have used instant potatoes in this recipe with success. Thank you for your comment.
Thank you so much! You made my life so much easier! I did find that I needed 6 potatoes. Your receipe is GREAT!!!! Everyone loved it!
Terrific Richard, I’m so glad you liked it!
