Mini Mushroom Shepherds Pies

Mini Mushroom Shepherds Pies-3While we want to keep on eating whatever is in front of us after the Halloween candy is gone, sometimes you just need to lighten up the holidays. This #SundaySupper is all about lighter things, without lightening the taste! I chose a shepherd’s pie. This is made with mushrooms and can be made into easy portions. The dishes photographed are easily 2 servings, the dishes themselves were way too pretty to not use! I made four of these in regular sized ramekins and it was great because you still had room for veggies and salad and of course a small dessert without rolling away from the table.

You can also layer this with a layer of mushroom, a light layer of potato, mushrooms layer and then top with your potato mound. Potato mounds are the best! Mini Mushroom Shepherds Pies-6
