I love this pie, it's so tasty. I did use some different ingredients as I had left overs and this is where they ended up. My topping is mashed potatoes. I also made a pie crust for my pie which isn't necessary but it holds the ingredients much better when you serve it.

How to Make Shepherd's Pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook and stir the meat, onion, and celery in a skillet over medium-high heat or until the meat is lightly browned and the onion translucent. Add the carrots, tomato paste, thyme and black pepper.
  2. Simmer 5-10 minutes to blend. Mix in the parsley.
  3. Transfer to a 9 1/2 inch pie dish. I put mine in a 9" square casserole dish.
  4. FOR THE TOPPING:
    Combine the potatoes with the milk, black pepper and nutmeg. Mash in a food processor using the pulse motion.
  5. Spread the potato mixture over the meat mixture and sprinkle with the cheese.
  6. Bake at 350'F for about 30 minutes or until the potatoes are lightly browned.
  7. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving.
  8. Enjoy!
