I found this recipe in a Kraft Food & Family magazine and adapted it slightly to fit our tastes. I decreased the amount of beef stock and added the W sauce to make it slightly richer and thicker. DBF ate 2/3 of the pan the first time I made this, so it is definitely a hit around here. For faster prep, use leftover mashers. You could probably also use potato flakes, but I don't like those so I haven't tried it that way. DBF likes to eat his pie with HP sauce; I like it the way it is.

Excellant shepard's pie, I had no sour cream in so I subed with low fat yogurt, worked out very well. Also used baker potatoes becuse that was what I had in; had a small piece of mozzarella cheese to use up so I mixed it in with the cheddar. very good comfort food dinner, thanks for posting, will be making it again.

A really tasty, filling meal. The flavors blend well together and is very easy to fix. I would make this again, but my son didn't care for it. I followed the recipe pretty closely. I knew mixed vegetables would not go over here, so I used a can of green beans and a can of corn. I added a small onion, chopped, to the ground chuck when I was cooking it. I also substituted chili sauce for the ketchup and then reduced the worcestershire sauce. and exceptional. Definitely worth a try for anyone who enjoys Shepherd's Pie.
