|Upside Down Shepherd's Pie|
To boost the colour appeal add any vegetables you desire to the mix. The photo does not do the flavour justice! I love having the mashed potatoes on the bottom that way they stay moist and delicious....hence..."Upside Down Shepherd's Pie"!! Just toss together a salad and you have it made!
We are having a potluck at work today as a Christmas celebration and gift exchange. Am I bringing Shepherd's Pie...well no... but I have spanakopita ready to go in the oven.
