My Father-in-Law's Shepherd's Pie


What You Need:

  • 1 lb Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 T Oil
  • 1 Small Onion
  • 1 Can Condensed Tomato Soup
  • 1 Can Peas (drained)
  • 1 Can Corn (drained)
  • 5-6 Potatoes (skinned and cut)
  • 1/4 Cup Milk
  • 2 T Butter
  • Salt
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese
How to Make the Shepherd's Pie

Preheat the over to 350°.  In a pan, heat oil.  Cut up the onion and place in the pan.  Saute the onion until light brown.  Add your ground beef and brown completely.  

If necessary, drain the excess fat from your pan.  Mix in the the tomato soup and let simmer for five minutes. Mix in the peas and corn and simmer for another five minutes.

While the ground beef is cooking, skin and chop your potatoes.  Being water to a boil in a pot and add the potatoes.  Boil until the potatoes are soft, drain the water from the pot.  Begin making the mashed potatoes by adding 1/4 cup of milk, 2T of butter and a dash of salt.  Mix until the potatoes are of a smooth consistency.  If necessary, add extra butter or milk to make the potatoes softer or taste better.  


Place the meat and veggie mixture into the bottom of your baking dish.  Cover the meat mixture with the mashed potatoes.  Using a fork, create "mountains" in the mashed potatoes.  Cover the entire thing with some cheddar cheese (whatever amount you feel is good) and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the cheese is nice and melted.

Serve and enjoy!


P.S. This can be served with gravy if that appeals to you! We use it every so often.
