Never had shepherd's pie before, but have been wanting to try for a long time. This was a great recipe. Even the kids loved it. As I had no canned or frozen veggies on hand, I used some diced yellow and green squash for the vegetables. I doubled the amount of potatoes as I figured two would not be enough. Glad I did! I blended the potatoes with the egg and water and added some pepper and folded the cheese into them as well. Also, after reading reviews, I added garlic salt and brown gravy (from a packet) to the meat mixture. It made it much more flavorful. The only thing I will change in the future would be to not add the egg, as it made the potatoes more fluffy, but turned the dish into mush. I didn't get the desired crust from them. Also, I had to cook for an additional ten minutes and it still did not brown. When I try again without the egg, maybe it will take less time to crust. Great recipe and very versatile!
