I wasn’t introduced to Shepherd’s Pie until a couple years ago, but I love it! It’s a classic comfort food. It’s also great one dish meal that makes enough to feed an army.
Recently, Andrew mentioned that he wanted me to try making a Shepherd’s Pie. His grandma makes the best ever mashed potatoes with cream cheese, so we decided to try that for the mashed potatoes part.
The secret to getting amazing filling is using a jar of beef gravy! I’ve made Shepherd’s Pie other ways before and it just didn’t turn out as good. This filling combined with the cream cheese mashed potatoes makes this dish so good!
Andrew and I both agreed that this was the best Shepherd’s Pie we had ever had! Usually, whenever I make a new dish, we can think of at least a couple things to do next time to make it better. But with this dish, there is nothing I would change! It’s definitely going on the regular rotation.
