Shepherd's Pie from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @HamiltonBeach

Shepherd’s pie is one of those delicious comfort foods that tastes like home whether your parents made it for you as a kid or not. With savory beef, peas, corn and carrots in a rich gravy on the bottom and mashed potatoes on the top, it’s the quintessential casserole that appeals to everyone in the family because it doesn’t lean too far in any one direction. It’s comforting and warming without being too heavy, so it’s perfect for this transition to spring.

Traditional British versions of Shepherd’s pie use lamb. Here, we’ve used ground beef, but you can use either as both versions taste great! Feel free to serve it with garlic bread, but it’s not necessary since you can use the potatoes to scoop up all the yummy gravy. Save time by chopping your carrots and onion with a food processor and use your hand mixer to whip up perfect mashed potatoes. You can even assemble the pie ahead of time and stick it in the oven a half hour before dinnertime.

My mom and I always look forward to mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving. Did you know they can be made easily in your slow cooker while you’re taking care of the green bean casserole and basting the turkey?

Sweet potatoes with cranberries are a welcome update to the marshmallow-topped casseroles of yesteryear. These can also be made in the slow cooker, and it couldn’t be easier. This might just become your signature dish for years to come.
