I fixed this lovely dish for supper this evening. My, my, we certainly did enjoy. I tossed in french-cut green beans, corn, and diced new red taters. Love the sweet potatoes on top. Turned out great! Thanks for posting such an easy and tasty recipe, Evie. Laudee C.

At our house, when I make Shepherd's Pie, I get these "Not the same old, same old" looks. Not this time! This was really delicious! I used a mix of 250 grams ground beef and 250 grams ground turkey, left out the Worcestershire sauce completely (we don't like it at all), and used a veggie medly of mushrooms, carrots and pumpkin. I shredded the pumpkin in large strips so the orange motif ran throughout the meat. Another trick I did was to heat the oil and first just put in the mustard seeds. After they stopped popping (cover that pan) I added the meat and then the veggies. The popped mustard seeds add such a wonderful flavor. I flavored the mashed sweet potatoes with some margarine and soy milk. I adore this dish, it's a great lunch, or a very homey supper. Eve, thanks so much for posting this!

This was pretty yummy! I used peas and shredded zucchini as my veggies. It was a little watery, I wish I'd had time to let it simmer more. Still very tasty!
