It was St Patrick's Day yesterday, so I invited friends and made the traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner. However my daughter doesn't like Corned Beef so I decided to include a Shepherds Pie, and I tried this recipe. She loved it and so did everyone else!
A great recipe to spice up to your own likes. In regards to the mashed potatoes, I followed my own recipe, I use evaporated milk and lots of butter, salt and pepper.
To the ground beef, I added a large chopped onion, some garlic, salt, pepper, celery salt and red pepper flakes.
For the one can of mixed vegetables, I instead used two cans of green beans.
Once all put together, I baked until the potatoes began turning a nice golden brown, I removed from the oven and covered the top with grated cheddar cheese and popped back into the oven until the cheese was melted.
This I will make a again splitting it in half, one for dinner and one for the freezer. Thank you for the recipe!
