    allysonenglert's Note:

    I used to call this Mashed Potato Casserole growing up, but ever since I started making it for my husband and others they all seem to recognize it as a version of Shepherd's Pie. Now that I've tried my hand at Shepherd's Pie, I can see the resemblance! So I've renamed this "Poor Man's Shepherd's Pie", as I think it's much simpler, much cheaper, and much easier to make than most Shepherd's Pie recipes. Enjoy!
