Shepherd's Pie OAMC

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Margie99

I just made my first batch of this and it smells great. I made homemade gravy and plan on freezing from-scratch mashed potatoes separately. I also think that this would be great to have on hand for when you do have leftover mashed potatoes.

It is very good--but this is a recipe for Cottage Pie--not Shepherd's Pie. Cottage pie is made with beef, Sheperds' Pie is made with lamb. Made with Lamb it is even more delicious. Happy eating
