{Recipe} Shepherd's Pie - Yum!

Shepherd's Pie




This is a quick and yummy favorite!!
{It's also a GREAT way to use up leftover mashed potatoes!!}




Brown some ground beef {I used about a pound}.

{I know, Mom...I need to clean my stovetop!}



While you're cooking the ground beef...you can make the potato part:



Melt butter in a large saucepan {I used about 3 Tbsp.}...
then add your mashed potatoes {mine were cold leftover ones ~ I had a nice-sized portion}
and an 8 ounce block of cream cheese.
Add a little extra milk, if needed - enough to make it a smooth consistency.
Heat {on medium} and stir {constantly...so it doesn't burn} to blend all together.





In a greased casserole dish...



Layer the beef...



Then add a layer of frozen corn or peas {I used a 16 oz. bag}...



Last, add the mashed potato mixture...




Bake {uncovered} at 350° for about 30 minutes.



YUMMY!!

I love a good cottage pie (shepards pie is usually lamb, at least that's what my English Mum always said, though I prefer beef- like THIS great recipe!)

Looks tasty!

i miss shepherds pie. my mom used to make it as we were growing up. maybe i'll give this a shot and take a trip down memory lane :)

PS. my partner is english and he always makes fun of north americans for using beef in their shepherds pie. Apparently it's traditionally made with lamb! Hence, the "Shepherd"...
