Shepherd's Pie for Kids
I couldn't resist making the kid's shepherd's pie to look like a woolly lamb. Normally lamb is used in a shepherds pie, but I used beef. I mixed the beef and chopped veggies with Simply Organic's beef gravy mix since it's non dairy.
I topped the beef mixture with mashed potatoes, also non dairy. I placed peas for the eyes and a carrot for the nose. I did not add the ears until after they came out of the oven. The ears are oval slices of provolone cheese. I didn't want the ears to melt away to nothing that's why I waited till the end to place them on top.
I have made shepherds pie before for my kids and they were not really thrilled with it.
Since then I changed the gravy mix to Simply Organic, dressed it up, and now they wolf it down...oops. No pun intended...! :)
