I love shepherd’s pie and Tom loves sweet potatoes so this was a perfect combination for us. I found a recipe for shepherd’s pie and got to work on making it my own. The thing that drew me to the original recipe was it used lamb as the meat. I love lamb and don’t have it nearly as often as I would like. I use it in my meatloaf and it adds great flavor. The original recipe called for russet potatoes but we only had sweet. I was very happy with how this turned out and it is an easy meal to make. Prep time is under an hour and cook time is about 45 minutes. If you don’t love lamb as much as I do you can use any ground meat.
