This is, hands down, the best shepherds pie recipe Ever!!! I didn't have fresh carrots, so I used a bag of frozen mixed veggies. I added a minced shallot and minced garlic to the potatoes. I didn't have enough lamb, so I mixed some sausage in to make up the difference and to add a bit of saltiness to the meat. Finally, I layered the meat, then the veggies, and potatoes on top. I baked it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes because it had cooled a bit by the time I got it put together, and then I topped it with cheese, parsley, paprika, and put it under the broiler till the cheese bubbled. My whole family loved it, including my daughter, who likes nothing I make. The changes I made were due to personal preference, not because I felt the recipe needed changed. The beer gravy is what makes this recipe amazing, so, no matter what you do, don't change that part at all. Except, of course, if you want more gravy. Next time, I will double the gravy and pour it over the potatoes. It's just so good!
