We chose the beef broth and flour chili sauce for our add-ins. This had a different, yummy flavor. I did feel that it was too runny, even with the flour, so we'll adjust that next time. It also needed more potatoes. I cheated and used boxed potatoes and already cooked ground beef. Nice and easy meal!

I wasn't going to review this recipe until I tried to make it again. My fault for a boo boo. I cooked it a tad too long so some parts of the beef got extra cooked. As well I would use a smaller casserole dish than what I did use. The 11" was too large, the 9" would make the layers thicker. For my taste I found the mashed potatoes too cheesy with the soup, I would just put in some cheddar cheese on top only. I added the cream corn and Dijon mustard to the mixture. The meat mixture had a delicious flavor. I will have to attempt this one again with my boo boo's fixed to get a much better taste of it. I have loved all of your recipes Kittencal I am sure this one will be another as well. Thanks

Easy and good. My 12 year old loved this. The only thing I did differently was that I used some leftover mashed red potatoes to top it. Thanks!

This was easy, tasty, and inexpensive. We added canned mushrooms, ketchup, and some corn, and we used boxed instant potatoes because we were in a hurry. It turned out great, and we enjoyed it very much.

I thought that this would be one of those recipes that I would like more than my wife, but no! She loved it, too. I made it as written and the only extra was ketchup. I'll add more extras next time to see how it comes out. Thanks for providing what is going to become a regularly made, family favorite.

My first time making this, I forgot to drain the fat from the beef mixture and my potatoes ended up on the runny side -- my fault entirely. That said, it was still VERY tasty. I'll definitely be trying this recipe again.

My DH had never had Shepherd's pie and he loved this recipe. He said that it had that Grandma taste. Very east to make. I added step 12 and 13 to my pie. Tasted even better the second night we had it. Thanks Kittencal for another terrific recipe.

This was very yummy! both my DH and my toddler loved it. I didn't have cheddar cheese soup so I used cream of celery (all I had) and it was still yummy.
