Homemade Shepherds Pie

Shepherds Pie has been a favorite dish of mine for years. I remember making this meal with my grandma as a little girl. I would always sneak bites of  mashed potatoes. They’re my favorite! She didn’t care. I remember her whispering to me “throw in more butter… throw in some cream.” ;)

This dish isn’t exactly the “prettiest” but it is oh so good! It’s the perfect comfort food. We love it around here and do not make it nearly enough…
