How to make Shepherd’s Pie!

Step 1: Making the ground beef layer. In this layer it has chopped carrots, onions and ground beef. Once you saute the vegetables together add in the ground beef. Once cooked then all you do is put it in the casserole dish and set a side.

Step 2: Making the creamy cauliflower mash for the top. Traditionally the top layer is a crust or mashed potatoes. To make this recipe low carb we have swapped it out for a cauliflower mash. I honestly think it is just as delicious. First you will want to boil the cauliflower and drain it once its done, then add it to a blender. Add in the seasonings, butter, cheese and heavy cream then blend until creamy.
