Sara's Shepherds Pie

Sara's Shepherds Pie created by Peter J

I love making this. It's such a nice winter meal, and it's so easy and quick, and best of all..so economical!! Growing up, Mum made shepherds pie almost weekly. Over the years I have altered it, and this is the way my family enjoys it now. We don't serve this with anything, except maybe a nice bread roll.

    Was not as good as I expected with the other 5 star reviews. The herbs were overpowering.

    Yum! Looking at the ingredients I thought this might have been just a little bland but the good seasoning of black pepper combined with a good sharp cheese topping gave a great result.
