Recipe by Carole of The Yum Yum Factor
Shepherd’s pie was requested but it’s not my favourite. Why not make a filling that I really like and top it with some mashed something or other and just call it a day? I really wanted something that was a bit spicy, like a Jamaican beef patty. My beef/mushrooms patty filling is the right consistency, it’s spicy and the family likes them as much as I do. There was no reason it wouldn’t work.
And that is how Shepherd’s Patty Pie was born. I took my usual blend and extend beef/mushroom filling and topped with it with mashed sweet potatoes to balance out the heat and everyone got what they wanted.
