I made this up one evening when I needed to use up some ground beef and had one lonely frozen pie shell in the freezer. My husband was uneasy when I told him it was shepherds pie because I had made one before that tasted terrible. When he tried this however he said it was great! The vegetables could be varied to your taste or whatever you have on hand. I used Veg-all frozen vegetables.
Homemade Pumpkin Puree in the slow cooker! I scoured the internet for a recipe like this and didn't find one, so I decided to just try it and it works just as well as the traditional oven roasting method. In fact I think this was easier, no need to worry about it burning or monitor an oven for hours.
