Easy Shepherds Pie Recipe | Quick Weeknight Dinner!

Easy Shepherds Pie Recipe

Ok – Let me say up front that I know that SOMEONE is going to point out that this is technically “Cottage Pie” and not “Shepherds Pie”. But I grew up and live in the United States and lamb isn’t as big a deal here as (apparently) it is in the United Kingdom. If you ask most Americans what meat is in Shepherds Pie, they will likely say “beef”. That is what it has always been called here!

Now that is out of the way – to my UK readers – we good?

Anyway – this Shepherds Pie recipe is another one of those comfort foods that is always a big hit in my house. Matter of fact, my family seems to like any recipe that starts with making a roux (like my Sausage & Biscuit Gravy recipe). I think that they just really like anything creamy and meaty and I think that they like this almost as much as my mini meatloaves with mashed potato topping.

This really does cook up quickly and then just needs about 25 minutes in the oven for the mashed potatoes to get that really good crust on them. You can use your favorite mashed potatoes recipe for the topping or, if you are in a hurry, just use instant potatoes. Like I said before, I am generally not a fan of instant mashed potatoes, but they can often come in handy when you are in a rush!
