Vary the vegetables you use to give the classic shepherds pie a bit of an updated flare.
I've used carrots, bell peppers, green and yellow peppers, tomatoes, celery, green beans, sliced squash, sliced zucchini and onions. Get creative and mix and match your favorites... it tastes great with just about anything!
Keep the topping on your shepherds pie from tasting too bland by stirring in a package of ranch dressing mix after you mash the potatoes. This gives the whole dish an extra burst of flavor that brings it over the top.
