  1. How is this an Amy’s Shepherd’s Pie “copycat” if it has beef and beef broth? Amy’s products are all vegetarian at the very least.

    1. You are correct. I’m a vegetarian, and love Amy’s! This is our version and we happened to include meat!

  2. Would this work if I made it in a disposable baking pan and froze it? I need to make a meal for new parents who want freezer meals to reheat. If I did a whole batch, would it reheat well in the oven?

    1. Of course! The freezing containers are our best recommendations but you can freeze how you like. Personally, I do a lot of freezing in glass. If you have more questions, feel free to pop into chat in the bottom right-hand corner!
