Classic shepherd's pie topped with mashed potatoes is the perfect comfort food. The recipe below, topped with a layer of crisp potatoes, makes the traditional recipe a bit more chic. But don't worry; it's still the perfect comfort food meal that will satisfy you any night of the week.
The secret to success with this recipe is ensuring that the potatoes are super thinly sliced. You may want to use a mandoline to get slices as thin as potato chips that will crisp up perfectly in the oven. If you like, you can substitute ground lamb for the ground beef.
