A favorite comfort food, shepherd’s pie is an easy, hearty dish that traditionally consists of meat and veggies topped with leftover mashed potatoes. For a delicious twist, add a sprinkling of shredded cheddar to form a rich cheesy crust.
Time-saving Tip: I love to “Cook Once, Eat Twice or More!” So to save time, I like to buy a few pounds of ground turkey (or grassfed ground beef) and brown it in a skillet over medium-high heat with some finely diced onion.
Then, I divide the cooked meat into 1-2 cup portions and freeze it for future use. That way, I have precooked ground meat on hand to make quick dinners on busy nights, such as crockpot chili, taco salad, spaghetti with meat sauce, and of course, this easy shepherd’s pie recipe.
