Amazing Shepherd's Pie Recipe

Shepherd's Pie is a simple homey dish consisting of potatoes and ground beef. For some, it is comfort food.

This recipe is a cheater recipe of sorts in that it uses just seven ingredients, which include both canned vegetables and soup. If you love Shepherd's Pie but want to try a slightly different version, you might want to try this easy one today.

I have also included a video that features step-by-step instructions on how to make a simple Shepherd's Pie recipe! I hope you enjoy it.

      We use Kangaroo instead of BEEF :)

      I'm hungry now

      But all jokes aside. We use all the left over meats at end of the week

      and mix it all together. Yum

      But a lot of Aussie's will mix in Rabbit meat as well.

      I've not tried that, just saying

      Cheers from DOWNUNDER

      Shepherd's pie is one of my favorite comfort foods. I like just a little cheese on top of my mashed potatoes. This recipe seems very flexible for changes in vegetables or meat. I like it a lot. Have you ever tried the top with hashbrowns? I wonder if that would work? Oh so much to try so little time. I'm bookmarking this for fall cooking. Thanks d
