Shepherd's Pot Pie - two classic dishes come together in this family-friendly, healthy recipe. So hearty and comforting! | tastythin.com

Shepherd’s Pot Pie – a family favorite classic dish full of flavor and nutrition made with a flaky crust top.

This Shepherd’s Pot Pie is a wonderfully wholesome meal you can feel great about serving to your family.  Two classic favorites come together in one dish – Shepherd’s Pie and Pot Pie.  In our house, everyone has very different tastes and food preferences (and if you have kids, you know their likes/dislikes sometimes change weekly!) but this dish got the thumbs up from the husband and BOTH kids, which is a rare event!

A savory Shepherd’s Pie filling of ground beef and veggies is topped with a flaky pie crust.  This recipe is completely fuss-free, comforting, and nutritious.  So homey and hearty and perfect for those autumn evenings or a cold, winter day.  I love a dish that uses simple, inexpensive ingredients and comes together in no time.  This recipe is also perfect for doubling – serve one tonight and freeze one for later!

Tips for Shepherd’s Pot Pie

  • For a gluten free version, use a gluten free pie crust.
  • Make it traditional Shepherd’s Pie by substituting mashed potatoes on top instead of the pie crust.  Bake until mixture is bubbly and potatoes are beginning to brown.
  • Substitute ground turkey or lamb for the ground beef if desired.
  • Great for freezing!  Make the filling, top with raw pie crust, cover and freeze.  Then just thaw and bake!
