Homemade Shepherd’s pie, made with ground beef, chicken, frozen mixed vegetables, and creamy potatoes.
A little over a month ago I asked my subscribers on YouTube, which recipes they wanted. A lot of people said shepherds pie. Although, I had previously uploaded a shepherds pie recipe on my blog, I think that a lot of my readers, and YouTube subbies wanted more of a “traditional” shepherds pie. You know the kind with ground beef, mixed vegetables, tomato sauce, and etc.
I personally am getting pretty tired of the same old traditional recipes these days, so I spiced things up. Instead of using just ground beef, I decided to use chicken as well.
Also, I jazz up the potatoes a bit by whipping them with a combination of cream cheese, and sharp cheddar cheese. The potatoes always come out super creamy, and flavorful!
