    It turned out great! My husband liked the smell of it so much that he didn’t want me to finish it in the oven before eating it. Fortunately I had kept the meat mixture hot on the stove while mashing the potatoes.

    Turned out perfectly. I have a child with a dairy allergy, so I made the potatoes with chicken broth. Left off the cheese until serving. Great flavor and consistency. Will make again.

    I used ground elk, pure joy! A keeper for sure. i like the finished look of potatos getting a little color. will finish with a quick broil and put the cheese in the mash potatos. Happy belly!!!

    It was a great base recipe! I added a few things and removed the peas because gross. I also like to season the meat, so I changed a few steps.

    Family loved it! Fun to make, not too hard. I actually tripled the amount of mashed potatoes, and used instant mashed potatoes. Had some leftover red wine to enjoy with it!

    I have been just winging my Shepherds Pie recipe for years from an old family recipe. This beats that by a mile. Amazing!!

    I'm not generally a fan of Shepards (Cottage) Pie, but I really liked this recipe. It takes a bit of prep work, but totally worth it! My 6 year old granddaughter liked it, even the carrots. I will make again!

    It was delicious. I used only 1/2 an onion instead of 2 whole onions. I also added mushrooms. I deleted the celery. I used frozen peas, carrots and corn. Will definitely make this again
