I only rated this four stars because of the changes i made. First off i seasoned the mixture with garlic powder and johnny's seasoning salt, and insted of using a whole can of cream of mushroom soup i only used half and threw in about half a cup of sour cream. Also used a bag of mixed veggies. (didnt have any green beans.)It was very good after that. My boyfriend really liked it, its also a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes!

Good basic recipe. But bland, bland, bland.

I didn't use cream of mushroom soup, and used ground turkey rather than beef. Also used onion powder (along with garlic and pepper) to season the meat. I flavored my mashed potatoes with hot curry powder-- YUM, that added a wonderful taste (and smell!) To moisten the mashed potatoes, I made them with the appropriate amount of water and milk, then added about 1/2 C chicken broth. This counteracts the need for any creamed-soup (+ makes it dairy free and cuts the calories.)

I've never made shepard's pie - so I was surprised when my husband came home and knew exactly what it was. I couldn't stop nibbling at it. I did a few different things.. not major... but I cooked the onion and added garlic with the ground beef. I added a little bit of seasoning...salt, pepper, a bit of this and that. In my mashed potatoes I mixed half of the cheese in them and added sour cream. I had almost 4 cups of mashed potatoes after the fact, so I threw it all on top of the complete meat mixture .... My husband had his working partner with him when he came home and asked him if he wanted "Shepard's pie." They finished almost half of the whole dinner. My 2 year old loved it... but my 3 1/2 yr old...who has gotten soo picky... didn't even try it because he didn't like the way it looked. Oh well...his loss... This seemed to be great comfort food from childhood for my husband. Thank you.

This was a great recipe, easy to make and easy to prepare. It was surprisingly tasty although a bit on the bland side which is part of the reason I rated it a 4. You may want to spice it up a bit. The other is the 'mashed potatoes is a bit vague; there are many possibilities for mashed potatoes. In my case I sued boiled three mid sized russet potatoes in a large saucepan with 1/2 tsp salt for 20 minutes (until tender), then blended with 4 tbsp half and half and 2 tbsp butter. I will definitely make this again.

Easy Easy Easy! This was an excellent recipe. I made it just as written; however, I did put a little garlic powder in the potatos. The next time I make it I will make about 3 to 4 cups of potatoes.

I make a variation of this using low sodium soup and half a packet of onion soup mix. I use whatever veggies I have on hand. Sometime I add cheese, sometime not. As is, the recipe needs a little seasoning, but it's a good base for a hearty meal/

I never had shepherds pie with green beans before, always mixed veggies or peas and carrots, but I really liked this. The only thing I did different was saute the onions with the beef, and add extra cheddar to the potatoes. My husband did ask if I'd be insulted if he reached for the hot sauce, but I wasn't because he puts hot sauce on everything anyway! I'll definately make this again, for the simplicity of it.
