    Andy Wold's Note:

    This is our family's version of Shepherd's Pie. Simple and quick to make, freezes well, and allows me to easily remove the cheese from my portion (and add to a grateful sibling's portion).

      This was really good! It was my first time having sheppards pie and I loved it. My boyfriend suggested instead of using corn we use frozen peas and carrots which worked out good!. I cant wait to make this yummy dish again! Thanks Andy!

      My first try at a Shepherd's Pie, after many years of asking by hubby. It got great reviews! I added some chopped onions to the ground beef as it simmered.
