Made for Fall 09 PAC Premie Adoption. I made this almost exactly per the recipe, changes were I added 1 1/2 tsp Beef Boullion crystals to the meat mixture :used Jack Daniels Original BBQ sauceand added one small can of Ortega chopped chilis; rather than mashing fresh potatoes I had some leftover mashed potatoes from night before, added cream cheese rather than Miracle Whip (don't care for it myself). I also reduced this down to 1 casserole instead of 2 since I am out of room in my freezer, but when I make it again later will certainly make two. This was absolutely delicious and the answer to my quest to find a Shephards Pie recipe I would keep. Thank You Alcomene for a really spectular way to use up all the leftover mashed potatoes I always wind up having in this house of one.
