      I really liked this recipe. I used homemade garlic-sour cream mashed potatoes to top it and put a layer of shredded cheddar cheese underneath the potatoes. Awesome flavor!

      My husband doesn't like my Shepherd's Pie (even though I love it) so I was hesistant to feed this to him, but he absolutely loved it. He added ketchup to it, but I thought this was a perfect dish as is. A good basic meal.
