    I haven't tried this yet, but I have a correction to the name. This is not a shepherd's pie because it uses beef instead of lamb. It is a cottage pie.

    This was yummy! Simple and good. My grandson asked for this to be repeated often. Thanks for sharing. Made for Cookbook Tag.

    A tasty variation on Shepherd's Pie! I doubled the spices (not the sugar) because I thought it was too bland. I also added 1/2 teaspoon of smoked paprika to the spice mixture for a nice balance. This one is a keeper!
