When it comes to comfort food shepherd’s pie is on top of everyone’s list. Classic shepherd’s pie is an easy recipe to make and a wonderful weeknight meal. The lamb is simmered in deliciously seasoned sauce with added veggies and topped with creamy mashed potatoes. It doesn’t get any better than this.

To change things up a bit you can use different veggies and add garlic or cheese to the potato topping. If you don’t want to use lamb, you can substitute it for beef, pork or chicken. Any combination of veggies and meat will work in this simple recipe
