Easy Sweet Potato Shepherds Pie

Easy Sweet Potato Shepherds Pie - #recipe from ItsYummi.com

Would someone mind telling me what happened to September?  Not that it physically went anywhere, but what on earth happened to make it go by so quickly?  I went shopping at the mall last week and just about hurled when I saw Christmas decorations being put on display at Target!

The only thing that’s made me happy about the holidays coming up so quickly is my love for what I call the “foods of Fall”.  Sweet potatoes, apple pie, stuffing, turkey, and the rest of the carb-loaded goodness that’s associated with Thanksgiving dinner.  Because I really didn’t want to wait 2 more months for turkey, I decided to create this easy sweet potato shepherds pie recipe. It’s got the fall flavors I love, but it comes together in 30 minutes instead of the 3 hours that a full turkey and trimmings dinner takes.  It’s the perfect solution for a crazy busy life like mine. Can you relate to the busy schedule lifestyle?  If so, let this recipe come to your rescue!
