How To Make sweet-potato and sausage shepherd's pie

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 400 spray a regular loaf pan with cooking spray
  • 2
    Boil potatoes until tender in a large pan.About 15 min.
  • 3
    Combine olive oil, garlic and onions in a large skillet and saute for 5 min or until tender. Add sausage,beef and pepper. Saute until meat is cooked through..about 8 min. Add the beer and simmer until reduced by half..about 4 min. I usually remove the veggies after cooking and saute beef/sausage separately..then drain fat. You can do all together..might have more flavor!
