Shepherd’s Pie is one of the most comforting homey meals I have ever eaten. Ground beef, vegetables, mashed potatoes and ooey gooey cheese. What’s more homey than meat and potatoes?
This recipe is really easy too. You just cook the ground beef with a little seasonings. Boil and mash the potatoes. Pour everything in a pan together and bake it. Add the cheese and bake it for a few more minutes, and voila.
I like my shepherd’s pie with ketchup on top.
