Homemade Shepherd’s Pie is the epitome of comfort food.

Buttery mashed potatoes, cheddar cheese, ground meat with tomato paste and worcester sauce.  Need I say more?


And, a nice bonus is that the pie is loaded with veggies.  I used a frozen package of corn, peas, carrots and string beans and it was perfect.

This is definitely a rich recipe, so a little goes a long way.  We have some left in the fridge now for lunches tomorrow.

This is a simple shepherd’s pie recipe that you can whip up in no time.  The only time consuming part is the mashed potatoes.  Today, I peeled the potatoes and waited for them to boil while helping with homework.  The meat filling is cooked all in one pot – your skillet, so super easy.  We like that.

Tips for this Classic Shepherds Pie Recipe:

  1. Try to use beef broth instead of chicken.  I have made this recipe with both and the beef kicks up the flavor a touch.
  2. I use the baby dutch gold potatoes.  They are smaller than regular potatoes.  I use 12 potatoes with the baby dutch and 8 with regular size gold potatoes.
  3. I use grass fed beef – it just tastes better.
