    Awesome – can’t wait to make this!! What size baking dish are you using for this particular recipe??

    Thanks, man!

    • Derek Howes on August 5, 2014 at 12:00 am

      Thanks Anthony! It’s a 15×10!

      • Anthony on August 5, 2014 at 12:00 am

        Wow, thanks for the quick reply! I have a 13×9, so hopefully that will be big enough. Might have to pile it up a little higher 🙂

        One more question if you don’t mind – do you have any approximate estimate for the weight of the onions? I don’t want to use too much or too little, but I’m sure as you know, the size of a “large” onion is very subjective. Might just have to wing it!

        Thanks again,
        Anthony

    That was great! Made it for dinner tonight and everybody loved it! Can’t wait to try the slow cooker chicken pot pie !

    Just a heads up- the eggs used for the shepherds pie recipe are not included in the ingredient list for the recipe, but are mentioned in the directions. I am making this recipe right now and was confused. I thought this might be good to let you know. I made the quiona chicken parm and it was delicious! I am sure this will be great as well. Keep up the good work.

      Fixed! Thanks a lot Evan. I appreciate that!
