    Banriona's Note:

    I got this recipe from a local hole in the wall Lebanese restaurant and tweaked it a bit. Best of both the sweet and savory worlds. As a time saver I keep a jar of this spice blend (Shawarma spice blend) on hand and just measure out 2 1/2 tsp of the combined mixture in order to make this recipe. For the frozen vegetables I use a combo of corn, peas, green beans and carrots.

      Really good! I used a corn and pea mixture, and the mild sweetness of the vegetables paired perfectly with the sweet potatoes. I might use more meat next time, and leave out the cheddar. I really could not taste it all, so the cheese just added unnecessary calories. Otherwise, I loved this recipe- thanks for sharing :)

      Very good twist on shepherds pie! I'd rate it five stars because it was really delicious, but that was because I doubled the spices. We like it quite spicy, and this blend of spices is excellent. Only the amount seemed not enough, so I doubled it and that was perfect. I'll make this pie again! Thanks for sharing :)

      How neat ! Had some frozen ground turkey from our Dear Departed Tom's raw diet, and searched for a recipe. Saw "SHAWARMA" -- and just HAD to prepare this ! BigBadBrenda was my partner in the last Spice Swap, and sent me an envelope of the mixed spice. Prepared the recipe as posted, and thought as I "built" it in the casserole, that I should have made TWO pans (for 2 of us), but it will last for a few warm-ups. Did add pepper and garlic as suggested by another reviewer, but found it all just a tad too sweet -- likely the cinnamon - a necessary spice for the area. We did enjoy a different approach to Shepherds Pie. Thanks for posting, Banriona.
