I saw the brit food thread and I was reminded of this.
When I was in elementary school, the cafeteria often served "Shepherd's Pie" which I thought was just the greatest thing

It really wasn't anything fantastic: just ground beef with a layer of corn, topped with mashed potatoes and baked, but I used to gobble it down.
I made it myself as a teenager with munchies and too much time, but have forgotten about it for years...

...I must have that meat and mashed potato casserole!

I make a couple of times a year, but add yummy cheese on top. Mashed taters, already cooked hamburger meat, peas or corn, Rotel tomatoes, more taters, more meat, more taters, cheese, bake. Yum.

make it with lamb...

The only problem I have with this dish is that some people throw together unseasoned beef, bad gravy, and instant mashed potatoes, then try to pawn it off as Shepherd's Pie. It's like adding beans to chili.

Wait till somebody throws Steak & Kidney pie into the mix. That will add yet another layer to the awesomeness.

I get this at the local 'gourmet' grocery store (Wegmans)...




VERY VERY tasty.

I buy my dog canned wet dog food that's Shepard's Pie.

The human variety sounds pretty good. I'll have to find a recipe or two.

I make that all the time, having leftovers for dinner tonight.

I brown a pound of ground beef, then pour a can of tomato soup on it, put that in the bottom of a 9x9 casserole dish, cover with cheese, then I do a layer of green beans, then a layer of cheese, then a layer of mashed potatoes, then a layer of cheese, then bake the whole thing until all the cheese is melty. Awesome cold weather food.

Use to love the Shepherd's Pie that my mom would make. I had some in a British pub earlier this year made with lamb. Damn, it's good stuff!!!

Should be lamb. Hence, "Shepherd's" Pie, not "Cattleman's" Pie.

Alot like grammar Nazi or spelling Nazi, but instead food Nazi.

Of course, you are correct... that stuff in the cafeteria was delicious.

"A lot" is two words.
"Allot" is one word, but not the one you wanted.

What his cafeteria served was 'pate chinois' or China pie, a cheaper variation popular up here. I was raised on the stuff. And by corn I think he means creamed corn. The potato on top is sprinkled with paprika. My mothers side is kinda Canuck, so I suppose this is a Canadian dish? As kids, my mother, aunt, and uncle nicknamed it, "potta shit".

This looked so good I just make one. A pound of hamburger browned with a chopped onion, salted and peppered. A can of mixed vegetables layered on the beef with some garlic powder, and 3 to 3 1/2 cups instant potatoes spread on top with a little more salt and pepper. In the oven at 350 and 20 minutes later some fine eating.

Me too! I was reading this thread when my daughter came downstairs to ask what was for dinner. I told her Shepherd's Pie, and she squealed with glee and ran back upstairs. Onion, carrots, garlic, spices, 1.5 lbs ground beef, chicken broth, peas, tomato paste and worchestershire sauce, topped with mashed potatoes. I didn't have any corn, but otherwise it turned out great. Good for leftovers too. Thanks for the dinner tip!

The best shepherd's pie on earth is served at Pusser, on the harbor at St. John USVI.

I have been told by Brits that what we call Sheppards Pie is really Cottage Pie. Cottage Pie is made with ground beef while Sheppards Pie is made with Lamb. Which when you think about it, it does sort of make more sense.

My former S/O was a Brit, she called the one with beef Shepherd's Pie. It's all very similar.
