Comments: Shepherd's Pie: converting the conservative heathen one dish at a time

Meg,

And when you've mastered steak and kidney pie I'll come straight over on Eurostar, knife and fork in hand.

Dumdad, I haven't yet tried to make a steak and kidney (the Critic is not a fan) but I can make a pretty mean steak and ale pie - is that good enough?

I love shephard's pie, but I add peas and corn!

Nope, there must be kidneys!

My husband loves Shepherd's Pie and this sounds like such a gut and heart-warming recipe! Wonderful!

I made this recipe last night and it was a hit!

I made a chicken version (blasphemous, I know), since I had leftover chicken and chicken broth from home-made chicken soup the night before. I also used 1/2 sweet potato and 1/2 regular potato for the topping, and added chopped baby carrots, chopped french beans and sweet corn to the gravy....it was thoroughly delicious!

My husband and I both thank you...he says he's willing to eat this meal as often as I'm willing to make it ;-)

I beg to differ on the topping, though I haven't tried this recipe. I was disciplined for adding too much butter to the mashed potatoes - it can make it slippier and elastic (gummy) instead of light and fluffly. More milk, I was taught. what do others think?

LeoVille, you may be right but if so I haven't hit the critical point yet with my potatoes. I once had the slippery gummy potatoes you describe but it was the first (and last) time I followed an ex-boyfriend's advice on mashed potatoes and used an electric beater.

A truly embarrassing Thanksgiving as I was the new girlfriend being introduced to old friends and managed to mess up a pretty simple essential dish!

Hi Meg !!!

Thank you so much for reminding me about such things. It'd be a perfect thing for my two finicky eaters. My mother used to make an amurican version for me when I was growing up, wonderful stuff!
