I made a variation of this shepherd pie recipe. It was delicious. My variation...used a buttery pie crust which I baked at 450, pricked crust with fork, baking for 10 mins. Used my turkey gravy, cut up turkey, frozen peas heated mixture in a sauce pan before adding to pie crust, layered in order turkey gravy mixture, mashed potatoes, I sprinkled crispy french fried onions on top of mashed potatoes, baked at 450 for 30 mins. For additional flavor, heated plain gravy for a side to be used.
My main review using tweaks and changes..It was so delicious and tasty, a keeper...
Have been making this for years. I use dried thyme when fresh is not available and have used mushroom soup in place of celery. Just depends on what is in my pantry. I always add cheese to the potatoes.
These were delicious, and it took two to feed everybody. For the second one, I substituted leftover shredded chicken for the ground beef, added taco seasoning instead of the thyme, and used condensed cream of broccoli soup instead of the celery. The spicy one was even more popular than the original!
I have been making Shepard's Pie for years..My recipe is just a little different & less fattening...I use can corn drained..instead of cream of mushroom or celery soup.I use mushroom gravy which is low cal.I season ground beef with garlic, onion,spices (your choice) I use italian seasonings. drain grease.putin baking dish add mushroom gravy, gravy bouquet,cover with corn,cover corn with mashed potatoes and bake until gravy bubbles up from bottom by then the potatoes will be browned...
I brown the beef with finely chopped onions. Instead of mixed veggies, I use thawed frozen kernel corn, and instead of the celery soup, I use cream of mushroom. This has been a family and a pot luck dinner favorite for many years.
