Shepherd’s Pie

This cozy meat-and-potatoes dish is perfect for St. Patrick’s Day. If you’re going for a more traditional take on the dish, you’ll want to use ground lamb rather than ground beef in the casserole. We say you can’t go wrong with either, especially when you’re topping the mixture with creamy mashed potatoes.
