Shepherd's pie traditionally has not a bread or pastry crust but a top "crust" of mashed potatoes.

We had it tonight. Dh makes it by boiling the fat out of the hamburger and squeezing it out. He adds corn, or peas or carrots and a dash of something to spice it up a bit. Yum. Getting the grease out makes it taste better.

There's enough left over for another night but I should ask him to make double and freeze it.

I should get into freezer foods too. Some good ideas here.

I fry mine with onions, I can't imagine a good shepherds pie without onions. I do drain off the fat & add veg & gravy powder. It's a great comfort food.
