Low Carb Shepherd's Pie

READY IN: 1hr 1min
Recipe by Mercy

Make sure to season each layer well, as it is difficult to season it later.

This is low carb comfort food at it's finest! My family devoured the entire pan. Definitely a keeper!!! Oh, the only thing I may try next time is to double the amount of cauliflower puree so that the top layer of faux potato is a little more true to the proportion of traditional Shepard's pie.The recipe as written only yields enough to barely cover the meat mixture. Still... it's delish!!!
