Shepherd's Easy Pie

Shepherd's Easy Pie

Traditional Shepherd's Pie originates from the British Isles, but it has been a common dish in American kitchens for years. Because comfort is not always convenient for today’s kitchens and cooks, we remade this recipe using today’s convenience foods. Originally, the dish was a basic stew topped with potatoes; often using leftovers - leftover roast ground meat, vegetables and mashed potatoes. If it was made using ground lamb, it was called "Shepherd’s Pie”, but if it was made with beef it was “Cottage Pie". Watch Becky make this on Studio 5

Traditionally made from leftover meat, vegetables and potatoes; this recipe uses convenient ingredients to make a real comfort food that is both easy and delicious.
