Shepard's pie

I am looking for a recipe for shepard's pie. We got these little mini ones at the store and they were in a little pie sheel. I would like something like that but be able to make it in a regular pie shell. If you have any recipes for this I would love to see them! Thanks!

Re: Shepard's pie

I don't have a "recipe" per say. We kinda do a catch all for leftovers.
And call it Shepard's Pie. Others probably have "real" recipes!

Usually a bisquick crust on the bottom, filled with ground beef and/or sausage, whatever veggies are on hand (corn, peas, carrots) maybe a little sauted onions and mushrooms, some cheese, a can of cream of whatever, top with leftover mashed potatoes.

I'm sure others have much better recipes. Ours is like the "Mutt" recipe.
It's good and filling.

That sounds yummy! I have a question though...If I put it in the pie crust should I bake it first? Thanks!

I would bake it first. Your stuff is already made and all you are really doing is heating it through in which case you would not want to bake it for long. So baking the crust first would allow for that. HTH!!!

Re: Shepard's pie

Our version of Shephards Pie is

1 lb ground beef
1 small can of cream of mushroom soup
1 package of instant mashed potatoes
Frozen corn
Chedder Cheese
and a frozen pie crust

Follow the directions for the instant mashed potatoes while browing the ground beef. Also have the frozen corn cooking until hot.

Once the ground beef is cooked, drain the grease and add the cream of mushroom soup (you can add a little milk if it's too thick).


Put the ground beef mixture in the bottom of the UNBAKED pie crust, top with the cooked corn, top that with the instant mashed potatoes and cover with shredded chedder cheese.

Bake in a preheated 350 oven for about 15-20 minutes!

Yum-O!!
