  • I first heard of Shepard's Pie in England and it is made with Lamb over there (they have a lot of sheep over there) and I have never liked it. Sounds better to me with very lean ground beef.... no chicken for me though. This recipe is very different than what they did over there. But all variations sound great.

  • I use a deep dish pie crust, and use cream of mushroom soup (undiluted) instead of the tomato, I use green beans and corn in the middle and shredded mix cheese on top, delicious!

  • I always lined a pie plate with raw ground beef, added grean beens or sweet corn, layered top with mashed potatoes then before taking out of oven, topped with american cheese singles

  • Sounds great!!! Great way to get rid of food items that are leftover or not enough of for another recipe. Shepard's pie or Cottage pie it's a wonderful recipe with mouth exploding flavor to fill you up. Thank you for sharing.

  • Sheperd's pie is traditionally made with lamb. When you use beef it is a cottage pie.

  • Wow Ive never seen it made like that either. How i always make it is just fry the hamburger up with onions and garlic, salt and pepper. Put it on the botton of dish and take 2 cans of corn put it on top and then the mashed potatoes. Bake 350 for about 20 min or so till heated.

  • I've never heard of Sheperds pie made with tomato paste or anything with tomato in it, yet these are the only receipes that I see on line. It sounds good, I might have to try it made this way. Around here, we just add beef boullian cubes and some cornstarch, which makes a nice gravy for it. The mushrooms threw me too...actually, the whole receipe is very different from how we make it here in the Pennsylvania Dutch Country! :)
