Easy Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s pie is traditionally made with lamb or mutton — if you make it with beef it’s supposed to be called “cottage pie” but that tradition has slipped.  I find that mixing some cheese in with the mashed potatoes is tasty.  You can use flavored mashed potatoes, too.  My kids are fond of the ones with bacon.  I prefer making the gravy from the mix as it seems to taste better to my palate than the kind from the jar.
