J'Teena, nice twist on shepherds pie. I took other reviewers suggestions of doing only a top crust. I used garlic and cheddar cheese in the biscuit mix. For extra flavor I also added 1t garlic powder to the meat while it was cooking, and 1/4c parmesan cheese and 1t garlic powder to the mashed potatoes. My family gave it "two thumbs up". My hubby has asked me to make it for his fishing campout with his buds! Now that's a compliment! :-)PS I used all frozen veggies since we don't care for the canned version.
Flawed yet filling!? I added blanched fresh vegetables insted of canned because the thought of canned peas makes me ****! My wife suggested leaving off the top crust because the bottom layer was plenty. A little bland in the seasonings but I would make it again and spice it up a little more. Would be good on a cold winters night.
I've got a family of 5, three of which are young and very picky boys, so I'm always on the lookout for something that is both tasty and filling. This fit both bills. I cut out the bottom layer of biscuit mix and just used the mashed potatos instead, I also added a large can of mushrooms and increased the chili powder. We'll definitely be making this again as it's a LOT of food and the boys all loved it!
My bunch really enjoyed this recipe. It really does make a lot, but you really can't have too much. Tastes just as good warmed over later. I added some sharp chedder cheese. The one complaint I got was the WHOLE tomatoes, I will use the chopped can of tomatoes when I cook it for church Sunday. I may get brave and add some sour cream with the potatoes to give it a perk!! There was alot of crust, but I like that. Made it really pretty, too. I suggest to those who don't like much crust to just make less crust. I like crust of the top and bottom. Just grease your dish with butter or spray and it won't stick. I think this is so far the best recipe on this site I've come across so far... but I have plenty to try.
Way too much crust!! This recipe was way too dry, and filling was very bland. Did not like at all.
A lot of people are mentioning that this is underseasoned. I think the recipe is oddly worded, as 1/4 TABLEspoon is a weird measurement, I don't have any fractions of tablespoons on my measuring set. I suspect many of the home cooks inadvertently used 1/4 teaspoon instead. Everywhere that it says 1/4 tablespoon, use 1 teaspoon instead.
We enjoyed this but, next time we would eliminate the bottom crust and just put the top crust on.
It was good. Did not have all of the ingredients, but was still good. We used 8oz tomato sauce (no tomatoes), 2 cans of corn (no peas), and just topped with potatoes (no crust). I will make again when I have all of the stuff. Makes a great shepperd's pie this way.
