"A bit of a twist on the old Irish recipe. Loaded with a few extra vegetables, this went well with a side of bread. My husband liked it, my toddler was too interested in the bread..." — mrsjarvis

I've been making our shepherd's pie like this since I found Ellie Kreiger's recipe last year. I add more onion and some chopped celery & bell pepper, and sometimes even some sliced mushrooms, to the turkey saute, along with garlic powder, poultry seasoning and some cajun seasoning as ground turkey can be very bland. I too add a little grated cheese to the top. This makes for a delcious and healthy version, plus you can sneak all kinds of veggies into the meal!
followed exact recipe. not bad
Good basic recipe, however I have added cheese on top of the potatoes and then put it into the oven. I have also put an egg wash on top of the potatoes and baked in the oven - this way there is no need to place under the broiler.
Other reviewers suggestions made this recipe extra good. Added the mushrooms, celery, extra onion, and minced garlic. Put shredded cheese over the top and cooked for the last 10 minutes. Will absolutely make again!
My boyfriend and I made this for dinner tonight and boy was I pleasantly surprised! We did add garlic powder, onion powder, celery salt, paprika, and a few dashes of tapatio to the meat mixture. Added some cheese to the top before broiling. And we used a 9x9 dish instead of a 9x12. Other than that, we followed the recipe to a tee. I can't believe the mashed potato/cauliflower was so delicious without using milk or butter! We definitely recommend this recipe!
This recipe is good.
However there is one correction I'd like to make about the description of it on the "daily email". Colcannon with cauliflower tastes good, but it is NOT an "Irish flavor reminiscent of colcannon". Colcannon is mashed potatoes with kale (the Irish call it curly kale).
I really liked this recipe- I've made the same Sheperd's pie recipe for the last several years and wanted something more fresh.
bland. good with ketchup.
