Shepards Pie Virgin Here!

Elora | Feb 22, 2009 01:23 PM

I posted another thread about needing an alternative dinner idea of St. Patricks Day other than the typical corned beef and cabbage idea. I've settled on doing a shepards pie, which I've never made before. I'm trying to find one which uses champ at the topping, not just plain, mashed potatoes.

So, if you think you have a really good, authentic version of this recipe, please be so kind to post it here for me? Thanks!

Oh and here's a question. Is putting melted cheese on top of the pie traditional or some sort of americanized affectation? I've seen it served this way, and wasn't sure of the answer.
