A very tasty recipe that is also good when re-heated. I have been making this recipe for many years.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium size saucepan, add cubed potatoes, cover with water and cook until tender; about 15 minutes.
  2. Drain potatoes when cooked; mash and set aside.
  3. In the meantime, in a large frying pan, add oil and butter and heat to melt on medium heat.
  4. In a bowl, combine ground beef, ground lamb, onions, garlic, beaten eggs, Worcestershire sauce and mix well to incorporate.
  5. Add mixture to frying pan and cook until beef is browned, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  6. Now add carrots, petite peas, cauliflower florets, chopped zucchini, mushrooms, tomato paste, chili powder, seasoning salt, garlic salt, spaghetti seasoning and dry mustard; mix well and cook for about 5 minutes stirring often.
  7. Prepare a 7" x 10" or a 8" x 8" casserole dish by rubbing interior with butter or spraying with a vegetable oil.
  8. Preheat oven to 325°F.
  9. Transfer beef mixture to prepared casserole dish, level and pat down slightly with a spatula.
  10. Spread mashed potatoes evenly over the top.
  11. Bake in preheated 325°F oven for 30 minutes or until potatoes are lightly browned.
  12. Now sprinkle the grated cheese over the potatoes and return to oven and bake until cheese melts, about 5 minutes.
  13. Remove from oven and let sit for about 5 minutes to set before cutting into 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 inch squares.
  14. Serve with a dollop of ketchup if desired.
  15. Refrigerate any unused portions.
  16. Reheat 2 squares at a time in a microwave proof dish, on HIGH (full power) for 3 minutes or until nice and hot.

Bill's done it again. Its a winner. When I looked at it after it was assembled I thought oh man, this probably won't be so good and I'll bet its bland too. WRONG and glad. It was pretty darn good. I used pork sausage as I never have lamb, frozen cauliflower, otherwise followed recipe. Thanks for allowing me to be wrong once again Bill!

I haven't made sheppards pie in quite sometime and I chose Uncle Bills out of all the ones available because I thought his sounded the most appetizing. I also substituted pork sausage for the lamb and added pepper, but altered nothing else. It was as I assumed it be...Delicious! The variations are endless! Thank you for sharing...

I tasted the meat and vegetable mixture before transferring it to the casserole dish, and I was surprised at the blandness of it. I added some garlic salt, pepper, and ketchup to liven it up a little, which worked perfectly. I also found that I needed to add some water to it because it was a little dry, but that could be because I simmered it a little longer to ensure the veggies were soft enough for our young toddler to eat. The end result - a wonderful dish that we all loved! I'll be saving this one to my cookbook.
