Shepherd's Pie
































One of my family’s favorite go to dishes is shepherd's pie. This recipe is a casserole with ground beef, vegetables such as carrots and onions, topped with mashed potatoes. The casserole is hearty and so good! Enjoy!!!


Beef Layer:

1 lb ground beef

1 small yellow onion, chopped

½ cup carrots, chopped ****

2 TBSP flour

1 TBSP Italian Seasoning

1 clove of garlic, chopped

1 cup beef stock

1 TBSP Worcestershire Sauce

Salt and Pepper – Dash

Mashed Potato Layer:

1 lb pound potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes

½ cup milk

1 egg, beaten

3 TBSP butter

¼ cup and 1 TBSP of grated cheese

1 tsp garlic powder

Salt and Pepper – Dash

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly grease or spray an 8X8 baking dish.

To make the beef layer, heat a skillet over medium high heat and add the ground beef. Cook the beef until brown and fully cooked. If there is fat in the meat, please drain and add the onions and carrots. Cook for 5-7 minutes until the items are soft. Add the flour, garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Stir for 1 minute and the flour disappears. Add the beef stock and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil and cook for around 3 minutes or until the broth thickens into a light sauce.

Transfer the beef mixture to the greased baking dish.

To make the mashed potatoes, placed the cubed potatoes in a pot filled with cold water. Cook the potatoes over medium high heat and until fork tender. Once the potatoes are cooked, drain the potatoes with a fork or masher. Stir in milk, butter, salt and pepper. Add the beaten egg and cheese to the potato mixture and blend well.

Spread the potato mixture on top of the beef. Sprinkle cheese on top of the potatoes.

Bake the pie for 30-35 minutes, until the potatoes are golden brown and crispy.

Freezer Instructions:

After baking the pie, please completely cool and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Place in the freezer for up to 2 months. When you are ready to eat the pie, reheat the frozen pie while covered with the aluminum foil for 1 hour at 350°F.

*** Tips: Any type of vegetable can be added. Customize and make the dish yours.
