I never make it the same way twice! lol
Sometimes with a can of cream style corn and a corn of whole kernel corn drained.
Peas with mushrooms or without mushrooms
Frozen mixed veggies.
Cooked carrots with and without peas.
Peas and corn.
Mixtures are endless to your families taste.

This recipe sounds great but Shepherd's Pie should be made with lamb...
