Shepard's pie is a complete meal in one dish - meat, veggies, and starch. But it's also traditionally full of gravy and other things I'm not a huge fan of. What am I a fan of? BBQ sauce. Booyah.
Sarah's BBQ Shepard's pie
-ground meat of your choice (I used 2 parts ground turkey to 1 part ground pork for this)
-favorite homemade or bottled BBQ sauce (I can't make one I love, so I used Bull's eye because it is free of HFCS)
-lentils (yes, lentils)
-salt & pepper to taste
-chives, or green onions
-cream cheese (optional)
-cream, milk, or half and half
In a pan of boiling water, add chunks of carrots and boil until they're soft.
ricer courtesy of my friend Anne. Homegirl loves to buy random shit off of my Amazon wishlist. I can't complain, and YOU guys benefit from it because it generates new recipes! Poor Anne gets the crappier end of the friendship though - I just sent her chintzy homemade crap for Christmas and birthdays.
Anyhoo, a ricer is a like a giant garlic press for potatoes. It presses the potato through small holes in the bowl and creates the fluffiest and tastiest mashed spuds in the world. It also removes the skins if that floats your boat.
