Shepherd's Pie

Shepherd’s Pie

Are you looking for an economical meal to feed the whole family? Shepherd’s Pie is the answer. This 9 x 13 pan only uses a 1 1/2 lbs. of ground beef, mixed vegetables, mashed potatoes and cheese. It can be made a day ahead of time and then baked the next day for a healthy meal.

Here is our meat mixture before I made the gravy. We had some summer squash I wanted to use up so I added these too. That’s the beauty of shepherd’s pie, most leftover vegetables can be added to the mixture.

Top with mashed potatoes either real or instant. I made extra mashed potatoes the day before knowing I was making this the next day. Don’t have mashed potatoes? A bag of the ready made mashed potatoes work too.  Or do you have a bag of tater tots in the freezer? Top the meat mixture with those instead and then add the cheese.
