Shepard's Pie : Cooking with Little Miss9:48:00 PM
Shepard's Pie... so my daughter looked into her lovely cookbook that her Aunt gave her for a birthday, saw the recipe. She vaguely remembered eating it when we lived in London and asked if we could make it. I thought why not?
We didn't follow the recipe in the book because it asked for the potato flakes. I'm guessing that would have cut my time down significantly, but I haven't had that type of mashed potatoes in ages and I had a few lovely potatoes on hand so we opted to follow this recipe at allrecipes, with a few modifications:
• Little Miss doesn't like cheese that much so I put about a 1/4 cup of sour cream in the mashed potatoes and only a sprinkle of shredded mozzarella cheese and salt and pepper to taste.
• Did not have onion on hand so used garlic and steak seasoning for the beef.
• I don't like the flavor of carton broth, so boiled water and used a Knorr Beef bouillon cube.
• Did not mash the carrots, but left them in a soft cubed state.
