We make shepard’s pie frequently. Here’s what you’ve got wrong:

Shepard’s pie is really only called a “pie” because it’s baked in a dish with sides and has a “crust” of mashed potatoes on top. It was never meant to hold together in wedges the way a slice of apple pie does. If it did, it would be too dry. If you scoop up servings with your biggest spoon, the mashed potatoes will wind up more or less on the top, but the meaty bottom layer should be too moist to stick together like a serving of meatloaf. We serve it in our spaghetti bowls - not on flat dinner plates.
