I ended up with a twist on Shepherd's Pie that I will continue to make again and again... we loved it!
I had selected to put my own twist on Christine's Shepherd's Pie, since I hadn't made it in a long time and it sounded like a perfect cold-weather dinner. Having to make my Shepherd's Pie totally with ingredients I had on hand was actually pretty simple. I substituted ground beef for ground chicken (and beef broth for chicken broth), sweet potatoes for white potatoes and skipped the mushrooms and swapped corn for carrots.
Never, ever be afraid to switch up a recipe (okay, sometimes be afraid)... this time I lucked out, big time.
