Recipe: Shepherd's Pie IV

Shepherds Pie is a wonderful company meal to share or to send for my husbands lunches. We like to pack it in disposable containers and share it with home bound friends who are recovering from an illness or with our grandma. Since everything is in one container, it is easy to transport and hearty to eat. If desired, replace the chives with parsley.

Shepherd's Pie IV Reviews

  • This recipe worked well. However, I did make some changes. I used the serving converter and made enough for 5 people. I substituted frozen corn for the cauliflower and I omitted the cream cheese from the mashed potatoes. Someone else complained about the milk not being enough for the mashed potatoes. Honestly I didnt even look at those measurements. I just made real mashed potatoes the way I always do (and I never measure there either) and it worked just fine, so probably "mashed potatoes to taste" would be a good addition to the recipe. I also forgot to add salt. Even without salt, this dish came out well and it was a hit with the kids (1 and 3). It worked great for finger food for my 1 yr old, and even my husband enjoyed it. It is super easy and a great quick fix meal. I would definitely recommend it, and it will be on our repeat menu as well. I give it four stars, for being a good, balanced, tasty meal. The only reason I wouldnt give it five is because five seems like it ought to be reserved for something really fabulous, ingenious, or out of the ordinary.

  • I found this recipe as I sought to rid the fridge of a head of aging cauliflower. It was delicious- preferable to the recipe not containing the cauliflower. I did omit the cream cheese in the recipe, and everything turned our wonderfully Thanks

  • This recipe was very, very, good. It made wonderful leftovers. The only thing we changed was that we only used two onions, that was plenty. Also, we used real mashed potatoes instead of instant. But it was a very good recipe that well use again when we have company for dinner.

  • Great basic recipe I used ground beef, minced garlic, and made my own real mashed potatoes. Hubby and I loved it but will tweak it according to our tastes. Am going to sprinkle red pepper chips in meat and onion mixture to make it spicer. I see endless variations in this future pie. Thanks for sharing

  • This recipe was worth a second helping Omitted the cauliflower and added mushrooms to the ground beef. My family loved it

  • ExcellentI mashed the cauliflower w/the potatoes (cant tell its even there). I also added about a cup of sour cream to the cream of mushroom soup.I have three recipes for Shepherds Pie, and I think this is my favorite. My kids like it with corn better than with green beans. This is a versatile recipe.

  • A bit bland. Better Shepherd pis recipes on this site

  • Great recipe. Never made this before. Cut down a little on the onions and cooked the vegetables a little first. Had lots of leftovers that heated up well and tasted just as good as the first day.

  • I dished this up real good my hubby 8 year old and one year old loved it

  • Yummy

  • *Makes a HUGE amount of food The cream cheese made the potatoes taste really rich and delicious. ONE TIP TO ALL: salt beef/onions well, as I found it was a little on the bland side. But still definitely worth making.

  • I was worried about making Shepherds pie because I like spicy fun things (I am Italian); but this recipe is very, very GOOD. I defintely loaded up on the garlic powder - but even so, this recipe was awesome My English roommate and my Irish boyfriend gave me STANDING OVATION after the first bite I will definitely make this again and again

  • I made this tonight and the only change I made was to halve the recipe. I was very unimpressed. While I liked the addition of green beans and cauliflower, the dish was very bland. I had to double the milk because the potatoes were too dry. I dont think the cream cheese added anything special to the mashed potatoes. Would have liked something with more oomph.

  • My wife loved this as much as I did. It is wonderfull.

  • A little too cream cheesy, cut the cream cheese in half and it was excelent

  • Delicious. I added green beans, peas, carrots and celery. I also made my regular mashed potatoes to put on top instead of following the directions in this recipe.

  • Delicious I used fresh veggies and pre-boiled them. I as well mixed the mashed potatoes with the cheese. I also used regular sirloin instead of ground and soaked it in A-1. Also use garlic salt between layers It was SOOOOO GOOOOOD

  • Decent recipe, but a bit bland. I think the cauliflower may have something to do with it.

  • This recipe was in true English fasion, bland. I added in a few spices and cut down the amount of onion on the second try and we loved it.

  • Very good-a rib-stickin hearty dish. I cut everything in half and it still made a lot I used beef broth in place of cream of mushroom, after sprinkling a little flour in. I also added some sliced fresh mushrooms instead of green beans, and a tablespoon or so of worcheshire. Loved the addition of cauliflower

  • Loved this recipe

  • First, Way too much onion & potatoes. I would recommend you use 2 large onions & only 8 potatoes. Second, this has a pretty good flavor but if youre looking for a traditional Irish Shepherds Pie than dont cook this one. Not bad & a bit different. Makes great leftovers.

  • This dish is my hubbys favourite but this recipe by far outdid any Ive made before. Well worth the effort.

  • I used 12oz frozen peas instead of cauliflower, sour cream instead of cream cheese and 1 large onion instead of 4. I thought this recipe was delicious and I would make it again

  • Sub beef for ground turkey and added italian seasoning. cut recipe in half and still made enough to feed a small army. we ate it but it left something to be desired. added a lot of extra seasoning. not a fan of the cream of mushroom soup.

  • Wanna blow your mind? Substitute sweet potatoes for white potatoes. And sub mozzarella for cheddar. Tope with a little bacon. Oh my gosh
