Paleo Shepard’s Pie

with No Comments

Growing up, Shepard’s Pie was something my family ate on a weekly basis. However, it was made with Yukon Gold potatoes. So I decided to make a Paleo version of the recipe!

This recipe is so warming and hearty! It really great for when the temperature starts to drop. Add some hot sauce on the top to add a kick of heat! Next time I think I will try this with butternut squash.
