¬†Shepherd’s Pie

Time to slow down on the baking and make dinner! Shepherd’s pie is always a huge hit in our house. Now you can make this Pub classic right in your own kitchen. I always apply shortcuts whenever I can so it helps that this no fail recipe uses frozen vegetables you have in your own freezer. Running to the store to buy fresh vegetables is time consuming when you are in a hurry. You can use fresh vegetables if you have them.
