This reminds me of sheperds pie but alot quicker and simplier. Delicious kids loved and enjoyed and so did my coworkers for lunch the next day
I love to have dinner guests and am always trying new recipes on them. This was a hit. It is supposed to serve 12, so I thought I would have some leftovers for the next day or so, wrong, all gone except the very bottom scrapings. I am going to a "pot love" tonight and am bringing this with me. Takes some prep work but is worth the time and effort.
Made this dish last night and family loved it, would make this again. It was very good!!!
I use boiled skin on potatoes cut in small pieces instead of mashed to add a little more texture. Season them with a dash of red pepper powder and don't tell anyone.
Mom use to make this. But her was spicy. Both my sister and brother were delighted when I made it.
I LOVE TRYING NEW DISHES. THIS WAS EXCELLENT. DID OMIT THE RAISINS. BUT THE DISH WAS DELIGHTFULLY GOOD. GUESTS WANTED THE RECIPE.
I love shepherd's pie, and this yummy alternative is appealing to my whole family, even those who don't like lamb. This recipe is now in the front of my dinner section.
