Leighs Shepherd's Pie

"I made this up and to my surprise it was great. I love onions and garlic so I used more than this. I did not measure anything so everything is guess work. To put the potato on top try using a large cake decorating tip it makes it look nice and work better than trying to spread them on top. I topped ours with some cheese and DH eat three servings."

  1. Yummy! My husband and all four of the kids just loved this. I wasn't sure about it at first but this was sooo easy and tasted great. Thanks!!!
  2. Scrumptious! I have been married 11 years and have never made a shepherds pie-the ones I've been served did nothing for me. Out of desperation to use up some leftover mashed potatoes and gravy..i broke down and made this recipe. It was delicious! Very yummy and filling. Since i had gravy i didn't use the gravy pkg mix and the 1 cup water. I also substituted cooked carrots for the peas (didn't have any peas). I topped it off with a bit of shredded cheddar to keep the potatoes from drying out....very, very yummy! I think the sausage makes a huge impact in the flavor of this dish. I am now a believer in Shepherds Pie thanks to this recipe. Thanks for posting!
  3. Ok, first, not to be pedantic, but this is technically a Cottage Pie because it uses beef (Shepherd's uses lamb), but when it tastes this good, who cares? Really loved it, and will follow this recipe from now on. Very easy to put together, wouldn't change anything direction or ingredient-wise. Thanks psyko4cats!


I love to cook, but till I get a kitchen that is worth cooking in my cooking is down to the basics. I am working on having my own homestead and have a long way to go.I have started my own business and am just getting started.
