Fall favorite

Last night I made my version of Shepherd's Pie.  If you've never had it, you should definitely try it.  It's great comfort food and will warm your chilly bones during cold whether.  My family loves it, and we always have leftovers for lunch.
Shepherd's Pie 
1 lb ground beef or turkey (I've used both)
1 c shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 pack of frozen mixed veggies (carrots, peas, corn...)
1 1/2 onion
1 tbsp oil
Pack of mushrooms sliced (optional)
3 large potatoes
2 tbsp butter
1/4 c milk
2 tbsp ketchup
3/4 cup beef broth
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp flour
Cook your potatoes in a large pot until soft, once they are done mash them with butter and some milk adding 1/2 of a shredded onion. Set aside.
*Preheat oven to 375Saute one chopped onion in oil for several minutes.  Add meat and cook thoroughly, drain out any fat. Mix in ketchup, broth,Worcestershire sauce, and flour stir until thickened.
Add in your frozen veggies and mushrooms, simmer 8 min.  Spread meat mixture on the bottom of a baking dish, top with the mashed potatoes, spread layer of cheese over the top.  Cook for 20 min at 375.


  1. OMG- I just made this last night in the crock pot - it was so nice and warm and I didn't have to heat up the kitchen. Tonight I did crockpot lasagna.
    Thanks for your nice comment on my dresser I did. I will surely send some before and after shots to you.

  3. I have to tell you that I have never liked shepherds pie and then I came across your recipe a few weeks back.. and I love it. I've probably cooked this 3 times since I found it. Thanks so much for sharing.
