Recipe: Easy Shepherd’s Pie!

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr
Here’s a super easy, quick and delicious meal that the entire family can enjoy!  This recipe is really versatile, too – change the meat from beef to lamb or pork, switch out the veggies for your favorites, and maybe even use a different type of cheese! No matter how you work it, shepherd’s pie is always a comfort food hit.  Here’s my favorite version:
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup frozen corn
1/2 cup frozen peas
1 cup ketchup (or more, depending on your taste)
about 5 cups mashed potatoes
about 2 – 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
diced onion 
diced garlic
garlic powder
onion powder
salt & pepper
Prepare mashed potatoes, using diced garlic and seasonings.  Set aside.  Brown beef, adding in diced onions in a skillet.  Place beef/onion mixture into a medium sized bowl.  Add in ketchup and veggies, and combine well.  Place beef mixture on bottom of 9×9″ pan.  Place mashed potatoes evenly over the beef, pressing down slightly.  Place grated cheese over the mashed potatoes.  Bake at 350 for about an hour.    Note: The more cheese you put on top, the better this becomes!  The top part of the cheese becomes a crust, and the cheese underneath melts into the mashed potatoes!
