This recipe is definitely a keeper! I've tried a few shepherd's pie recipes in the past few years and this is the first one my husband really likes and wasn't just 'meh' about. My two year old couldn't get enough and my picky six year old even loved it, although he methodically removed every kernel of corn he could find which kills me because he loves corn on the cob! But anyway, the only change I made was I added 3 more tbsp of flour, to equal the amount of butter as I'm used to doing when I make gravy and it was just perfect when it came out of the oven. Now we have two more yummy dinners waiting for us in the freezer. Thank you so much for this recipe!
This was really good. I was surprised at how much flavor the oregano gave it. I used matchstick cut carrots, added an extra can of corn and two cans of french-style green beans. The next time (and there will be many more times), I will add more carrots and will add more flour to thicken the gravy, but that is strictly a personal preference. I have not yet frozen any, but have no doubt that it will be just as good then, as it is now.
This was delicious! It was time-consuming, but to get three meals out if it it's not a bad deal!
This was a relly good recipe. Thanks so much for sharing this. My husband is out of town working and I prepared this and ate half of it with my kids and put the other half in the freezer for a latter meal. I used Creamy Herb Mashed Potatoes for the mashed potatoes. What an easy one meal dish. Prepared for PAC Fall/2008.
I made this last night for dinner and to save two pans for during the month, and I really enjoyed it! I did make some changes due to what I had on hand, and it still turned out great! I used canned carrots, and instead of cooking them with the onions, I just poured them in with the corn. I also replaced one cup of the beef broth with one cup of port wine for even more flavor. The oregano, I just added a small pinch since it's not my favorite, and I used http://www.recipezaar.com/294395 for the mashed potato topping. I froze two of the pans, and cooked one, and it turned out absolutely delish! Thank you for a great recipe!
A little time consuming to make, but the flavor is GREAT, and to have this kind of home cooked meal on a spur of the moment by pulling it out of the freezer, well, the time and effort were worth it! Thanks for posting!
