I LOVE YOU SHEPARD’S PIE

The title of this post and recipe is a play on words, this recipe was created one day when I was preparing lasagna sauce for our son’s birthday and found myself with 2 pounds of thawed ground beef and only needing one. I also had all these veggies on hand.
I thought to myself what can I make, hubz was at work and that Friday evening was meant to be whatever for dinner so I thought to myself, the boy loves shepherd’s pie and I love him so let’s surprise him after a long day at work with it.
A few things lead to me naming it I LOVE YOU SHEPARD’S PIE
A: because he loves it so it’s like saying I LOVE YOU, SHEPARD’S PIE
B: because I love him and wanted to surprise him
C: because I HATE Shepard’s pie and I told myself I’d have some with him because I love him and he loves it.
SIDE NOTE I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SQUEAMISH ABOUT GROUND BEEF, RED MEAT IN GENERAL, BUT I CAN NOW TOLERATE EXTRA LEAN GROUND BEEF HERE AND THERE
I DID HAVE SOME AND I HAVE TO ADMIT IT WAS TASTY, HE ALSO LOVED IT AND KEEPS ASKING WHEN I’LL MAKE IT AGAIN.

  1. I love Sheppard’s pie and never seem to make it the same way twice; lately we’ve been using ground turkey in place of the ground beef and the only one who claims to notice is my older son. Pinned.

    • Thank you for the pin. Often i use ground Turkey or pork in our recipes….no one “notices” but if they knew i bet they’d claim to notice lol. This day i had beef frozen from making home made burgers in the summer….usualy for lasagna its ground pork
