I cant seem to figure out the calories in this recipe for shepherd's pie.
My husband wants to use beef instead lamb, but that's the only difference. Can anyone help me figure this out?

I appreciate it!

    Use the recipe builder on this site to import the recipe, sanity check EVERY ingredient that the recipe builder ‘finds’ after you import it.

    When it comes to the lamb entry - search for your brand of minced beef as the alternative and go from there.

    As suggested, the best option is to use the recipe builder and then weigh your completed pie, so you can allocate servings.

    The lazy way is to just sift through the many Shepard's pie entries already in the database, and pick the best approximation that includes specific weights per serving. I often go the lazy route if I don't plan to make it regularly.
