Shepherd's Pie is a traditional English recipe. Since I was American and my husband was British, I tried to change this wonderful recipe for the American palate. I hope you enjoy it because we do.

Peel and cut potatoes to make mashed potatoes. After boiled, mash potatoes. Add milk and butter, then set aside.While potatoes are boiling, brown ground beef, onions, salt, garlic powder and pepper until nicely browned. Drain off excess fat. Add peas and mushrooms, 1 C. water and brown gravy mix. Let this come to a boil and let gravy thicken. Place meat mixture into glass casserole dish.
