One Pan Shepherd’s Pie

Y’all know how normally when you make a Shepherd’s Pie you start it on the stove, then transfer it to a pie pan and bake it in the oven?

Well, we are not playing around with that mess here today.  This is all done in one cast iron skillet.

Because after the crazy busy few weeks I’ve had with home improvements inside and out, slammed at work, and taxes (UGH), I can’t handle one more thing.  I might explode.  Or implode. Or both.

Seriously, I am not cut out for physical torture manual labor or math.  I think I may have sprained a brain fuse or blown my gluteus maximus.  Or blown a brain fuse and sprained my butt.

And the nasty rainy weather we’ve had all week has done nothing to improve my sunny disposition, so it seemed appropriate to share one of my favorite comfort foods – Shepherd’s Pie.

Start it on the stove and transfer the whole thing to the oven.

The only thing I would have done differently?

Added beer.  I had to put it in a glass instead.

Cheers!
