Shepherd’s Pie With Ground Beef

Shepherd’s pie with ground beef is one of my favorite comfort foods, and it’s nice and chilly outside. It’s a delicious casserole traditionally made with ground lamb.

Many people make this recipe with ground beef, however, if you use ground beef it’s actually called Cottage Pie!  Either way, it’s a delicious crustless meat pie topped with mashed potatoes. The recipe can vary widely, but it is usually made with minced meat, cooked with onions, peas, celery, corn or carrots in gravy.

And while you’re interested in this shepherd’s pie with ground beef, you might also be interested in this EASY TARTER TOT CASSEROLE as well. They have the same level grades of flavor, or maybe this has more flavors than shepherd’s pie with ground beef.
