Shepherds Pie with Whipped Cauliflower Topping

Raven Higheagle


Saturday nights at the bar is All You Can Eat Steak Night, Sunday night is Raven's Special Night. This week is Shepherds Pie with Whipped Cauliflower Topping. Why whipped cauliflower you ask, because I serve potatoes all the time. The whipped cauliflower adds more veggies to the mix and I think that it tastes better than plain ole mashed taters. Also, my regulars don't know that it's not taters and they could use all the veggies I can get into them!
