Bird's Easy Cheesy Shepherd's Pie

"This is a very flavorful Shepherd's Pie. It puts a new twist on an old favorite by the addition of cream cheese and a dash of ground mace, and it's super easy to make. You can use any leftover veggies such as corn, carrots, string beans, etc. My photo was made using a shallow pan, because my deep dish pan was busy at the time. :)"

    Very tasty and very easy. The only change I will make in the future will be to eliminate the pie crust. It was really superfluous to the recipe. I will prepare this dish in a casserole instead.

    Different and delicious! Loved the additions of the sour cream and cream cheese. Call me crazy but since this was seasoned with Italian seasoning I decided to try peppers, mushrooms, and fresh tomatoes as my mixed veggies and it was *really* good! Thanks for another winner 2Bleu!

    Made this for dinner tonight. We thought it was very good! I made an OOPS and added the garlic to the ground beef instead of the potatoes, but didn't seem to make a difference. I also had more than 2 cups of potatoes so just piled them on. A very filling dish and oohhh so yummy. Thanks for another great one bird !

    This was the tastiest shepherd's pie I've ever had! I omitted the mace because I didn't have any. The cream cheese and sour cream definitely made the dish. It was a little too much paprika for my taste. I'll probably just sprinkle a bit on next time. Thanks so much!
