Shepherd’s Pie

on March 21, 2014

Ok, so we all know that there are a million recipes for making Shepherd’s Pie.  I used to make a basic one, hamburger meat, corn, potatoes, cheese, and I don’t remember ever making it with a sauce.  What is wrong with me?  It was still good, maybe there was a sauce and I just don’t remember.  Either way Shepherd’s Pie was a once a month, fall, winter, spring and even during the heat of the summer meal, because the hubby requested it.  It was simply one of his favorite meals.  However after eating it, even just once a month I was getting burnt out on it, him nope not even close.  Well since I make the dinners, I took it off the menu for a while, and by a while I mean for over 6 months.  He would suggest it but I would just blow it off.  Well without him knowing it, I put it back on the menu after finding this recipe.





This is before going into to the oven and getting all melt-y yummy.


30 minutes later this is the result….



Now personally I should have left in the oven so that the cheese gets that burn on it…(call me weird I like the burnt cheese on pizza too).  But this Shepherd’s Pie is a keeper for sure, and I think it may have just been because of the sauce that was made to make the meat moist and delicious. Plus it’s a great way to use up those leftover potatoes or if you like use instant (I did).


Now there is one thing I would change and that is the sauce mix, I would and this is my personally, omit the Italian dressing and add more gravy mix.  Of course everyone is different and has different tastes so you may like that little hint. I used my own homemade version of Italian dressing too, and that could have been the difference itself.  Again to each their own when you are  cooking,  it is what makes it your own.


So try the recipe.  Here is the link again to Shepherd’s Pie, and let me know if you added or changed anything to your recipe to make it your own.
