Look! Two posts on two days – in.a.row. Thankyouverymuch! 🙂
Moms always seem to be looking for easy recipes that can be made ahead, thrown in a crock pot, or thrown together quickly. I know I’m not alone in this! So, today I thought I would share my easy recipe for Shepherd’s Pie. We have a family of 5, so keep that in mind. You may want to double it if you have big eaters, more eaters, or want left-overs.
All you need is 1-2 pounds of lean ground beef, 1 jar of fat free beef gravy, 5 baking potatoes or 2 containers of Simply Potatoes, and shredded cheddar cheese.
Brown & drain your ground beef. Pour it into a 9 x 11 casserole dish. Pour gravy over the top. If you are using baking potatoes, then either bake or boil them and mash them. When I use “real” potatoes, I mash them with salt, pepper & milk. Personal choice & it tastes a lot better than the Simply Potatoes to me. But, if you are in a rush like I was this particular day, grab some fake taters & keep rollin’. Spread the mashed potatoes over the top of the beef/gravy. Sprinkle however much cheese you want over that. We like cheese….
Then just pop it into your 350 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes, which is about how long it will take for the kids to
complain put ice in the glasses, wipe & set the table while you take off those heels. That’s it! Did I take a pic of the final, bubbly, gooey, goodness? Nope. Use your imagination. Or take a pic of yours & send it to me to share. 🙂
