I have a coworker who loves Sheppard pie. She is always asking me when will I post a Sheppard pie recipe? Truth is, I never really knew what a Sheppard pie really is, so I never posted a Sheppard pie recipe.

Crock Pot Shepherds Pie

I researched Sheppard pie I found that was easy to make. Since the recipe seemed easy why not create a crock pot shepherds pie?


Cheeseburger Casserole 

I also found that a Sheppard pie recipe is similar to cheeseburger casserole, only Sheppard pie uses mashed potatoes instead of biscuits as you do on a cheeseburger pie.

Crockpot Cowboy Casserole

When I first published this cheeseburger pie recipe, I had someone tell me it reminded them of a crockpot cowboy casserole. So is this recipe a crockpot cowboy casserole, cheeseburger casserole, or Sheppard pie?

Bacon makes everything taste better. So I decided to also change up the cheeseburger pie by also adding in some bacon and making this a bacon cheeseburger casserole. The bacon was a perfect touch!
