There used to be a little shop in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee called The British Shop. They served teas and lunch. They had a very tasty dish they called Shepherd's Pie. I've looked at lots of recipes for Shepherd's Pie, and none of them seemed to match what they served there. This one I use comes close. Hope you enjoy!
(Note: several British friends have told me there is never any cheese on top of the mashed potatoes, so omit it if you like.)

How to Make Shepherd's Pie by Susan

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Brown lamb (or beef) well in a 10-inch iron or oven-proof skillet. Drain any fat off. Stir in gravy mix and the water; along with the herb mixture. Bring to boiling. Cook until gravy thickens. Remove from heat.
  3. Arrange thinly sliced onions over top of meat and gravy. Sprinkle well with salt and pepper. Then arrange green beans evenly over all.
  4. Drop mashed potatoes over top of green beans, and spread to edges of pan. Bake for about 25 minutes, until potatoes are browned on top. Remove from oven, sprinkle with grated cheese if desired, and let sit about 5 minutes so cheese slightly melts, before serving.
