This was very flavorful. I make a different kind of shepherds pie so at my families assistance I could not call it shepherds pie so I named it meatloaf mash and instead of spreading the potato's I dropped spoonfuls over the mixture. The potato's crisped nicely and the family loved it. My husband asked for it to be a regular.
