“I had a favorite recipe for Shepherds Pie that I have misplaced. I searched recipe sites like crazy trying to find it, or one similar to it, and this is what i came up with. Mine was not a garlicky topping but very similar in the fact that you beat egg into the topping(and a little cheddar cheese) and i would top it with a little bit of fine, dry breadcrumbs and a shake of parmesan once i spread it over the meat layer.If you are not a garlic fan you could probably just leave it out. Sometimes i would spread a can of cream corn over the meat layer,however this recipe calls for corn kernels to be mixed right in,you could probably still do either.My recipe also called for the thyme & savory which i like the flavor of.
