I remember my mom making Shepherds Pie when I was growing up, but I have never cooked it for my family. I started browsing the internet for recipes of what ingredients they put in theirs and I finally asked my hubby what he wanted in it and went from there. I can say it was a “big” hit in my house. My youngest Eli who eats like a “bird” ate two helpings and wanted more.  Hope you enjoy!
