We all deserve more mashed potatoes in our lives.

Here’s the thing with shepherd’s pie: we don’t eat it nearly enough. Shepherd’s pie is basically the excuse we’ve all been looking for to eat more mashed potatoes. It’s just a layer of savory ingredients blanketed in our favorite spuds.

Considering how great mashed potatoes are, we would all benefit from more shepherd’s pie in our lives. Luckily, there are a lot of ways to make shepherd’s pie. There’s the classic recipe with ground meat, veggies and a layer of mashed potatoes on top. There are vegetarian versions with lentils, and very clever ones with sweet mashed potatoes. There are even shepherd’s pie recipes baked right into a portobello mushroom. It’s time we try them all.
