Sweet Potato Sheperds Pie (Paleo Friendly)

If there is one thing on this planet that I love, it's potatoes. Well, potatoes and ice cream comes in at a close second. Potatoes, ice cream, and nachos. And cookies. I love cookies. Potatoes, ice cream, nachos, and cookies. Wait, what are we talking about? Oh yes, Potatoes. I love love love those little brown suckers. One of my favorite ways to eat potatoes is via Shepherd's Pie

Fun story time! I was about 5 or so, and my Grandma was slated to come and visit the US for the first time from Singapore. She didn't speak much English, and worried that her American grandkids weren't going to eat her Asian fare, she thought it would be a good idea to learn how to cook western food. She learned one dish; Shepherds pie. And she made it everyday for the three months she was here. So to me, this isn't just a comfort food, but a nod back to my good ol Granny!

Regular russet potatoes are high in starch, making them not so good for you when you are trying to stick to a low carb diet. My good friend Giselle introduced me to a great alternative to one of my favorite foods. At first, I thought, "how dare anyone try and mess with the original!" But I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious and rich this version tasted. I hope you try it and enjoy it as well!
