  1. This was excellent! I did add 2 bay leaves when simmering for the 7 minutes and broiled at the end. All 4 of us really liked this one. Definitely going into our rotation.

  2. This meal was yummy! I substituted frozen carrots and peas together because that is what I had that in the freezer. It still came out so yummy!

    This is NOT Shepherds Pie. It is a Cottage Pie. There’s only 2 meats that are appropriate for this dish: 1) Lamb or 2) Shepherd!

  4. Best Shepherds pie recipe I have made. I did cheat a bit and make instant mashed potatoes, it did not compromise the taste. My husband is from Ireland and loved it ! Of all the shepherds pie recipes I’ve tried I have to give this one a complete five star, total thumbs up 🙂
