Veggie Shepard’s Pie and Beer Bread

Happy St Patrick’s Day!!

I love to create meals around holidays and celebrations, so for St Patrick’s Day I have a delicious Shepard’s Pie and Beer Bread recipe for you. Also, I like scotch & whiskey and in honor of St Patrick’s Day I paired my dinner with Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey, it was a perfect combinations. The Kilbeggan is smooth and has almost a sweet taste with hints of vanilla and almond, I would recommend trying it! I hope you all enjoy my Veggie Shepard’s Pie and Beer Bread recipes. Cheers!!
