Instructions
  1. Wash and cut the potatoes in half and place in a large pot of salted water. (I don't peel the Yukon Gold potatoes because I like the texture with the skins. If you don't peel them first)
  2. Bring the pot to a boil and cook for 20 minutes or until the potatoes are fork tender and drain
  3. Heat the milk and butter in the microwave or small sauté pan. Adding the hot milk to the hot potatoes will create a nice creamy consistency
  4. Place the potatoes back in the pot and begin to add the hot milk/butter mixture. Mash by hand
  5. Add the the sour cream, salt and pepper and mash to combine
  6. Add more milk/butter as needed and stir until the potatoes are nice and creamy. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Cover the pot
Make the meat filling
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
  2. chop the garlic, onions and carrots
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan
  4. Add the chopped onions and carrots to the pan and sauté until they begin to soften - about 6 minutes
  5. Add the chopped garlic, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper and sauté for another 30 seconds
  6. Add the meat to the pan and break it up with a wooden spoon
  7. Sauté the meat until it's cooked through - about 6-7 minutes and add the tomato paste
  8. Add the chicken broth and reduce the heat. Simmer until the sauce begins to thicken - about 10 minutes, then add the peas
  9. Cook for a couple more minutes, until the peas have heated through
Assemble the Shepherd's Pies
  1. Place the meat mixture into 6 small baking dishes (or one large baking pan)
  2. Add the mashed potatoes on top of the meat mixture
  3. Bake for 20-30 minutes depending on the size of the Shepherd's Pies - until the filling is piping hot and the potatoes have browned
  4. Serve to all your favorite people and enjoy! Everyone's Irish when it comes to Shepherd's Pie
