Shepard's Pie!!

I made shepard's pie and it was yummy!! I found a recipe online, and it seems pretty simple, so I made it! Super simple, super yummy! 
First, I boiled potatoes to make into homemade mashed potatoes. I didn't remove the skins, even though that's what the recipe called for. Brian and I prefer mashed potatoes WITH skins. I don't have a picture of the next step, but then I took 2 lbs of ground beef and browned it completely in a skillet. Set it aside in a bowl.
Using the same skillet, without the ground beef, I cooked diced onion, sliced mushrooms (canned), garlic, salt and pepper. Cooked until onions were mostly soft. 
Then, I added beef broth. Let it come to a slow boil for a few minutes, until it tasted good to me =] Then I added the ground beef and let it simmer on medium heat for about 5 minutes.
Next, I poured that mixture into my pan, added a little more salt, pepper and garlic salt. 
Topped that with a full can of corn.
Topped that with my mashed potatoes and another full can of corn. 
Then topped everything off with some shredded sharp cheddar cheese. I then baked in for about 25 minutes at 400 degrees. I think, I would have to double check my recipe to be sure. Pretty much just baked it until the cheese was completely melted and started to brown on top. 
Finished product! Yum!! 
It was absolutely delicious and the reheated leftovers were even better! At least, that's what I thought. Yum yum yum!! I will definitely be making this again sometime! But I will have to half the recipe if it's going to be just me and Brian, because my recipe made a lot! But it was good! =] Next week I think I'm going to make meatball subs, using my yummy meatloaf recipe for the meatballs. We'll see how that goes!! =]
