Much like calling pizza a “pizza pie” it I’d just wrong. Savory pies shouldn’t be called pie. Think of quiche, that’s in a pie plate with a pie crust but it is not sweet.
Make this casserole last week and k was super pleased with the outcome. My friend and I made the potatoes from scratch, grated the cheese, opened the bag of frozen veggies and cooked the (still frozen) ground beef.
We also added a can of diced tomatoes and a can of whole kernal corn.
Shepherd’s pie is so worth the effort. The step most people forget is that you must season all three parts or it will be super bland.
Season the meat while cooking, the veggies once dumped in the baking dish and the potatoes while mashing.
