"This is a recipe my Irish aunt gave me. Her husband is Italian, and she developed this recipe to blend things they both like. It is a variation of Shepherd's Pie. For richer flavor, substitute beef broth for water in gravy."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Grease a 2-quart casserole dish.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir Italian sausage until browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer sausage to prepared casserole dish. Drain drippings and reserve 2 tablespoons drippings in the skillet.
  4. Melt 2 tablespoons margarine in a separate skillet over medium heat; cook and stir apple and onion slices until tender, about 8 minutes. Place apple and onion in casserole dish with sausage.
  5. Lightly stir sausage, apple, and onion together; season with salt, black pepper, and oregano.
  6. Brown flour in reserved drippings in skillet over medium heat. Whisk water into flour until thick gravy forms, about 3 minutes.
  7. Pour gravy over sausage mixture in the casserole dish; spread mashed potatoes over the top with a spoon, creating peaks. Lightly brush mashed potatoes with 1 tablespoon melted margarine.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven until the potatoes are lightly browned and the sausage mixture is bubbling, about 30 minutes.

I really liked this recipe! I make beef shepherds pie often, so it was a really nice change of pace with the sausage and apples. It was very moist and had a wonderful flavor. I will be making th...

This dish was excellent! It was easy to prepare, and a crown pleaser. I used chicken broth instead if the water, and used the instant garlic mashed potatoes.

LOVE this recipe! I was nervous about the apples/onion combo, but I'm so glad I decided to try it. The apples give the whole dish just a little bit of sweetness - its perfect. Very easy to make,...
