    Mille®'s Note:

    The shepherd was allegedly seen doing inappropriate things with the sheep, so he was temporarily reassigned to a herd of cattle while he underwent therapy, and therefore the only thing he could bring home to the cook was beef.

      Very good recipe with a distinct, traditional Scottish background. This is a sure crowd pleaser on those crisp, fall days. Thanks Mille!

      It was pretty easy to put together and going by the nutrition facts it is fairly healthy. Sadly, my fiance was not satisfied with it. He said it was ok, but very bland in his opinion, even though I actually put in 5 cloves of garlic and some seasoning salt

      Nice Shepherd's Pie. I wish I had left the celery out, it's not a favourite and a cup was a bit much for me. I reduced the garlic (thanks LEEEZAH) and was also tempted to throw in a teaspoon of dried mixed herbs. This was good comfort food.
