This is the first shepherd's pie I've ever made and this recipe was followed almost to the letter. The filling was made as directed except I used beef instead of lamb and beef broth instead of water. It seemed to need more flavor (I love flavor!) and it was a little too runny. Perhaps I could add more ketchup, less broth, and some other spices to play around with the flavors next time. For the mashed potatoes, I used red potatoes. They were boiled with garlic and salt. I melted 2 TBSP butter and 3 oz of cream cheese together, adding cashew milk to thin out a bit while still leaving it thick and creamy. Potatoes and creamy sauce were blended in a mixer. Cayenne pepper was added along with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Forgot to add the cheese before starting to spread on top of the filling...oops! Will definitely add that next time! I will be playing around with the filling flavors, but it's a start.
