Shepherd Pie for a Crowd

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by kmalavey

This is a new recipe I've come up with using what I like from several other recipes. I serve 12 routinely and usually 3-4 extra, especially with a salad. I have this when I have leftover mashed potatoes. You can also use high quality dried mashed or frozen bags. I use french cut or small frozen green beans. Use whatever vegies your family likes.

Excellent. Using what I had, I substituted veal/pork/beef for mince, and frozen peas for green beans. Have made many times and for crowds. Never a drop left over, lick the pan good!
