Yummy, Yummy, Yummy I have Jim's Shepard's pie in my tummy. Wife loves Shepherd's pie but it was just to plain for me. So one day I added a few ingredient's and WOW the flavors just explode in your mouth. From the creaminess of the cream cheese to the sausage gravy mix and Italian sausage. On top of all that is the thick layer cheese with the Bob Evans mashed potatoes. Oh wow I have to stop typing cause I'm starting to drool. lol
