    Rhonda *J*'s Note:

    I had a favorite recipe for Shepherds Pie that I have misplaced. I searched recipe sites like crazy trying to find it, or one similar to it, and this is what i came up with. Mine was not a garlicky topping but very similar in the fact that you beat egg into the topping(and a little cheddar cheese) and i would top it with a little bit of fine, dry breadcrumbs and a shake of parmesan once i spread it over the meat layer.If you are not a garlic fan you could probably just leave it out. Sometimes i would spread a can of cream corn over the meat layer,however this recipe calls for corn kernels to be mixed right in,you could probably still do either.My recipe also called for the thyme & savory which i like the flavor of. This recipe was credited to "New Canadian Basics"

      Very easy and delicious. I did not have savory; so I substituted with marjoram. I also used frozen mixed vegetables, which made things a little faster. Thanks so much!

      This was superb. We finished the entire pie in one meal! I added some fresh mushrooms to the onion and used half a bag of frozen vegetables in place of the carrots and corn. Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe.
