Bird's Easy Cheesy Shepherd's Pie

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by 2Bleu

This is a very flavorful Shepherd's Pie. It puts a new twist on an old favorite by the addition of cream cheese and a dash of ground mace, and it's super easy to make. You can use any leftover veggies such as corn, carrots, string beans, etc. My photo was made using a shallow pan, because my deep dish pan was busy at the time. :)

Very tasty and very easy. The only change I will make in the future will be to eliminate the pie crust. It was really superfluous to the recipe. I will prepare this dish in a casserole instead.
