There are endless ways of making a shepherds pie. This kid-friendly recipe will have your kids asking for seconds and thirds!
Growing up my mom catered to her kids and made her shepherd’s pie very kid friendly. Which we all appreciated! Now it’s time to pass on the torch to other moms who are looking for another meal that the kids will like. I love my mom and I appreciate that she always tried to make us all happy when it came to dinner time. And still does! She’s the best. Mom’s Shepherd’s Pie is a recipe that I have made for my kids multiple times because they love it so much. It’s really easy and a family favorite.
There are all kinds of shepherd’s pie recipes out there, but this is about as kid friendly as they come! Cheese, potatoes, corn, and beef. That’s it! So easy and so yummy.
This is one of our go-to recipes when we’re drawing a blank on what to make for dinner. I love brainstorming with my husband every week and figuring out a plan for the week’s meals. This one regularly pops up on the regular, along with Chicken Bacon Ranch Pizza, French Dip Sandwiches, and Baked Cheesy Tortellini. Three more easy recipes we can’t get enough of!
