I tweaked this a little, like many others, but this is easily my favorite recipe for shepherd's pie. I had been looking for a good recipe for a couple of years. My husband is Irish, but I don't love the way his family makes it. I tried several methods, including making the gravy from scratch. This recipe, with the golden mushroom soup, has the best flavor and is SOOO much easier!
I did add frozen peas and corn to the beef mixture, used cheddar cheese instead of American, and made mashed potatoes my way with butter and milk.
One thing I did learn from the Irish--once the potatoes are spread on top of the beef mixture in the baking dish, I score the top in a criss-cross pattern with a fork. It makes it look nice and makes it easier to tell when the potatoes are browned just right in the oven.
This will be my go-to recipe for shepherd's pie from now on:)
