I am not a big fan of shepherds pie cause I find it too bland. This had a lot of flavor and a nice gravy. Nobody even asked for the ketchup and that is usually a must, with Shepherds pie, in our house. I used 2 lbs of beef, skipped the pepper, added 1tsp of chili garlic sauce for some heat, next time will increase to 2tsp. Used frozen mixed veggies, so simmered a little longer because green beans take longer to cook. I boiled the potatoes,(I used 6 med/large) with some butternut squash for the extra vitamins, using 1/3 butternut squash to 2/3 potatoes, mashed together with butter, maybe I didn't drain properly or the squash changed the consistency, but I did not add the milk. Gives it a nice light orange color. Topped with the sharp white cheddar (though any other cheddar may do, this type of cheese is a must in my opinion) and put in the oven at 400 until the cheese was golden. I did not think the casserole would be hot enough if I only broiled.It was very good, I will be making this again.
