I think you get used to using the piping bag after a while so it's not too bad. I usually use the star nozzle with mine.
hmm... visualising hot mashed potato is not filling me with confidence in my already shaky abilities. But I will have to try now that I found I have a piping bag in the kitchen drawer. I think I still have a star nozzle somewhere. It makes it sound so glam! When I tried to use it before it all got stuck in the bag like cement and that's why I have consigned it to the bottom drawer!

Re: Shepherd's pie variations?

Only thing I would add to OP is that I bulk the recipe with the addition of mushrooms and finely diced courgettes for added nutrition.

Definitely use Worstershire sauce or Hendersons if you can get it.

Re: Shepherd's pie variations?

Mushrooms would be pretty good Realist - are there any varieties you'd recommend?

I can't use normal Worcestershire sauce as it contains gluten and I'm out of stock of gluten free (only the larger supermarkets do it). So I left it out entirely. But it was yummy without.

Any mushrooms will do, they all taste like mush.
