“Shepherds Pie is my favorite dish. I make it multiple ways. This way is the easiest and most tasty. Don't be afraid to add or subtract ingredients to suit your taste buds. The key ingredient for this is the cream of corn. Unless you absolutely hate cream of corn i wouldn't recommend omitting it. But that's up to you. Enjoy!!”
