I always only use frozen corn, creamed corn, ground beef or turkey, onions, and mashed potato. If I make it with another veg, I will still call it Shepherd's pie, but will usually note that I have a diffrent veg in it. Most of the time I only use corn, depends on my mood. LOL
I was at work today, and served Shepherd's pie. I didn't make it, it was made a few days ahead for me, I heated it up today and served it. One of the residents was SO upset there was 'too much carrot in it' and said she was going to make a written complaint about it. I was like, 'okayyyyyy' but honestly for a resident home like that I wouldn't have put anything but corn in it.
Do you every use anything other than corn when you make Shepherd's pie?? Do you have a favorite one?
