      This turned out very good. It was a nice way to use up my leftover lamb. My husband 'loved' it, he went back for 3rds and he never does that! I noticed the measurements on the recipe are a little odd. 3 tsp of oil is 1 tbsp. 2 oz of butter is 1/4 cup or half of a cube. 1/4 pint of milk is a 1/2 cup. This may help future cooks who make this. I boiled my potatoes, drained them and mashed them in the pot with the other potato ingredients. In addition to the listed ingredients, I used 4 tbsp half and half, 1/4 cup sour cream, 2 tsp garlic salt, 1 tsp pepper & 1 tsp dried tarragon (I think I'd half that next time). I topped it with sharp cheddar. Thanks for the recipe.

      This was excellent, although different than what we are used to in Shepards Pie. I used left over lamb roast and just couldn't help myself, had to add some thinly sliced carrots to saute with the onions and garlic and at the end I added half a cup of frozen peas. Added the veggies mainly because I was lazy and didn't feel like cooking separate veggies. It was kinda like a mashed potato sandwich, with the potatoes on the bottom too. We didn't even miss the gravy and loved the cheese on top, I used half parmesan and half sharp cheddar. We enjoyed it very much and will probably make it again. Thanks Di for sharing a good one.
