I absolutely love the savory saltiness of a good Shepherd’s Pie. Then one day I was trying to think of a new BFD (Breakfast For Dinner) we could have other than pancakes, sausage, and eggs, or Benedict of some variation, and thought Breakfast Shepherd’s Pie sounded pretty tasty.
Lo and behold, it was delicious! We used diced potatoes simply because I was nervous the classic mashed potatoes would be weird in a breakfast dish. But I think we’ll try that next time just for fun. You still get the classic Shepherd’s Pie flavors, though, with potatoes, meat, veggies, and gravy.
Plus it makes for a super quick and easy breakfast the next day. I ate my leftovers at my desk and they kept me going until lunch no problem.
