PBJ note 1/4 tsp of baking soda added when cooking the potatoes makes them incredibly fluffy, try it next time you make mashed, you’ll be surprised.
Also (not to be rude), the original recipe (Irish) called for ground mutton which gives you the “sheep” part of “shepherds”. (They couldn’t afford beef back then).
However that is old school and I prefer beef by far, as sheep is very gamy, many people call the beef version “cottage pie”
Awesome recipe though.
