    Impera_Magna's Note:

    Recipe is from Southern Living and obtained in a search for recipes for shepherd's pie... this one looked the best to me, so I tried it. It is GREAT and a regular request by the kids, especially my SIL. (Yes, yes, I know... shepherd's pie has lamb and cottage pie has beef.. but SL named this recipe, not me).

      This was very easy to make because I used leftover roast beef, instant mashed potatoes (Barbara's brand!), and leftover gravy. The meat was shredded and cooked in a little bit of oil with the onion. I also added a sprinkle of salt-free garlic powder to the meat. Threw in the vegetables, diluted gravy to make 1 cup "broth" and heated through. Topped with the mashed potatoes and sprinkled top of pie with paprika. I believe I had the pie prepped in less than 15 minutes. After removing pie from oven, allow to cool for 10-15 minutes. It is easier to serve that way. Each serving had a dollop of sour cream, too. Thank you, Impera!

      Delicious! I had left-over mashed potatoes from Thanksgiving and used a pound of venison from my deer-hunting brother-in-law. I had some celery to use up and threw that in the mix as well. For easiness, I used 1 cup of frozen peas & carrots. The only change I would make would be to use 1/2 the salt and add more at the table if desired. Thank you for the great recipe! I love these kinds of homey dishes and will make again!

      I liked the base but the egg seemed to thin down the potatoes and they were a little runny. I think the base would make a pretty good pot pie filling.
