    I've been to allrecipes.com but I thought I'd ask you guys.... I'm going to make it with ground turkey but other than that - what'dya got for recipes? It's for an apres ski meal so portability is key (ie: prep ahead of time and cook before eating).

    THANKS!

    Difficult to go wrong with shepherds pie but one thing I do when I make it is put in a little bit of curry powder enough to give it the flavour of curry but not enough to make it too spicy.

    I lived off Shepherd's pie when I was in College.

    When it comes to SP I like to KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid). I don't like fancy shmancy ones...

    1) I cook the meat (either ground beef or ground turkey) with your favorite spices and with some onions, salt, pepper if you like that.
    2) Cook the potatoes and mash them
    3) take a large corningware casserole dish and layer the pie like this:
    Bottom: Meat
    Middle: Cream Corn
    Top: Mashed Potatoes

    Leave a little hole on the potato layer, in the middle for when cooking in the over (so the juices can overflow if needed.

    4) Cook in the oven for a few minutes so to browned the potatoes

    Enjoy!!

    PS: if you plan on serving it later...skip step 4 and do that only before serving it.

    Pretty much one of the only forums on RM where most posts are related to the Forum in question!!

    I'm not a big Pea fan - but if you like them, would definitely be a nice addition. Same for carrots...some people like to add carrots to SP.

    My favorite local Irish pub serves SP - unfortunately I don't like it. :( They use tooooo much gravy, crappy (e.g. real fatty) ground beef and not enough potatoes. It’s like eating soup!

    well, that's pretty authentic to the stuff you'd get in a pub in ireland, although they tend to use lamb (and it's not always ground).
