I made this shepherd pie about 3 to 4 hours ago and it is almost gone . I will be making it again.

Dear Chef John, Potatos are native from Perú, South America.

Made this over the weekend, minus the cream cheese and the Irish cheddar for the spuds (used a reduced fat cheddar), and it was spectacular. Great seasonings for the meat. Am a novice, but now an accomplished one.
