    This is my favorite version. The nutmeg is my "secret" ingredient. Amounts need not be exact.

      This was really good! I used a garlic mashed potato and added corn as well as peas. Made for PAC Spring '12

      I've never made Shepard's pie before trying this recipe. I don't think it's my kind of dish. I just thought it was a little blah. Had lots of leftovers and was very sick of this dish by the time it was all used up. Perhaps this is a good recipe, if you like shepards pie.

      Delicious! The nutmeg IS the secret! Such great comfort food. I used a little less mashed potatoes about 4 cups, a little more meat about 1 3/4lbs, 8 oz cheese and about 12 oz of frozen peas just because that is what I had on hand and the only thing I would change next time would be to add about one more cup of potatoes. Thanks for a great version of this classic food.
