Better Shepherd’s Pie

better shepherds pieGrowing up, I learned to cook early on. Shepherd’s Pie was a family staple growing up but when I had my own kids I wanted to make it my own recipe, something I like to call a Better Shepherds Pie. The stars have seemed to aligned and low and behold, my kids ALL LOVE IT! Without fail, if I make this dish, the kids all rejoice. How is that possible? It must be magic. Which is probably why when I talk about it, people want to try it for themselves and they too love it.

Recipe Notes

The beans add a little more fibre to this generally meat and potato dish. I like mine with a bit of old school ketchup and my hubby likes his with HP sauce. Either way, I hope you enjoy!
