Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd's Pie is a pretty yummy recipe with a unique flavor.  It's a good go-to if you feel you've had enough of creamy cheesy keto recipes - they can get heavy on your palette.  This keto Shepherd's Pie actually seems somewhat light on your palette.  Give it a try if you're looking for something different.

Below is the meat mixture once spooned into the casserole dish.

Here's the shepherd's pie right before going into the oven.  You can see how the cauliflower was completely mashed and mixed with other ingredients, and spread into a nice layer on top of the meat mixture.  Mmmm, it's looking pretty good!

Here's the finished keto shepherd's pie casserole.  As you can see, the liquid boils/bubbles up through the cauliflower mash during cooking.  This is completely fine and normal.

Finished slice of keto shepherd's pie.  It holds together pretty well for being scooped out of a casserole dish.  If you make it individually it will obviously look much like an original shepherd's pie.
