Really good, fast and filling. Only I
substituted ground mild sausage for the
beef, and used instant (3 cheese) mashed
potatoes and added some diced onions as
well.I did have to add a bit more gravy than
called for, but will add this to our
menu!

My son and his friends eat this with no leftovers. I love the fact that is actually good for them and they are eating healthy.

If you are really in a hurry, you could probably use instant mashed potatoes.

I used the mashed potatoes in a bag.

This is definitely NOT English Shepherd's Pie; nothing like it. I lived in England for 6 years and never had it prepared this way, with cheese and sour cream and ketsup, of all things. Someone needs to visit England and have real Shepherd's Pie. Your so-called Updated Shepherd's Pie sounds really horrible. Also, mixed vegetables? I never had it any other way than just peas and sometimes a little carrot in it. Better get it right before you put the Union Jack on your recipes.

My husband LOVED this recipe as did I. I ended up substituting pre-prepared mashed potatoes that come in a crock because I did not have the real thing handy and it still tasted marvelous!!!!

THIS IS NOT SHEPHERD'S PIE, IT IS MORE LIKE HAMBURGER PIE.SHEPHERD'S IS MADE WITH LAMB OR MUTTON,AND HAS ONLY ONIONS, GREEN PEAS GRAVY AND MASHED POTATOES. HAMBURGER PIE, HAS GROUND BEEF, CANNED MIXED VEG, AND TOMATOE SOUP, WITH MASHED POTATOES, AND NO CHEESE. USING FROZEN VEG ALTHOUGH IT IS THAWED IT STILL CONTAINS A LOT OF WATER, THE BROTH WITH KETCHUP IS TOO THIN TO MAKE A GOOD GRAVY, I USE PROGRESSO TOMATOE BASIL SOUP, WHICH ADDS TASTE AS WELL AS BEING THICKER THAN BROTH. JUST A QUESTION: WHY DO AMERICANS PUT CHEESE ON EVERYTHING?

I add onions to the potatoes as they're boiling and also to the meat. I also use gravy flour, not baking flour and add salt and pepper to meat mixture while browning. Using cheddar and parmesan or Grana Padana cheese also amps up the flavor a bit.

Actually, my 15 year old daughter has made this twice for our family. She did decide to reduce the amount of garlic the second time. Everyone loved it and there were NO LEFTOVERS!!

Very good, especially with the homemade mash potatoes, however I felt the gravy should have been thicker and in greater quantity.
