shepherds-pie1Here is another old time favourite for you! I really like this recipe, because it is easy to put together and if you think about it – it can be made from your leftovers. And that equals to saving money and we all like to do that!

Easy Homemade Shepherd’s Pie:

3-4 cups of mashed potatoes

1 lb. of lean ground beef

1 cup of beef gravy

I can of peas and carrots or 1 cup of frozen peas and carrots

I medium onion, chopped

2 tablespoons of butter

2 cup of sliced mushrooms

Salt and Pepper

In a heated saucepan, melt the butter. Add chopped onions and sauté until slightly golden. Add mushrooms and cook lightly. Add the ground beef and cook until all raw meat is browned. Add in peas and carrots and mix all ingredients together, then mix in the gravy.

Grease 1-1/2 quart casserole and spread about ½ thick with mashed potatoes. Fill with meat mixture and top with large spoonfuls of mashed potatoes. Bake in a moderate oven (375F0 for 20 – 25 minutes.

You can top your Shepherd’s pie with grated cheese if you desire.

Note: Cooked, diced beef may be substituted with leftover lamb or veal and leftover vegetables and also be added to meat.

Hope you tried this recipe and enjoyed it! Your comments, suggestions and experiences are always welcomed and much appreciated!
