The Lighter Shepherd’s Pie

Rule #56: Sometimes you’ve just gotta shake things up a bit.

Shepherd’s Pie has to be one of my all-time favorite comfort foods. It hits all the main qualifications for Comfort Food Royalty: meat, veggies, gravy-like sauce, and a cheesy, delightfully sinful topping. Since we’re trying to live that low-carb life around here, I thought I’d lighten up the topping and swap cauliflower for the usual potatoes. Trust me when I say, I may never go back to Tater Life again. The topping is cheesy, salty, and light. You get all the comfort food deliciousness without all the carby guilt.
