Quick and Easy Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s Pie otherwise known as Cottage Pie is a great weeknight dinner recipe. Originated either in Scotland or England shepherd’s pie is the quintessential comfort food and then some.

This dish is perfect to make with leftover mashed potatoes or roast. When I make shepherd’s pie I usually make more than one if I can simply because it is freezer friendly. I am all over meals that can be preserved in some fashion for those days I just don’t have the time or energy to make dinner. It is also great to have on hand for the friend who may need a helping hand.

The recipe is simple to make and my kids love when I make shepherd’s pie. Veggies, mashed potatoes and meat all in one dish, what more can you ask for?
