flowerShepherd’s Pie


Fall is here and that makes us hungry for comfort foods.  So the other day I decided to make a Shepherd’s pie recipe I found while browsing the internet.

It turned out really good…when my hubby took a bite he said “it’s a keeper”…that’s always my sign that I should post this…

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Peel & boil your potatoes.  Add buttter, a bit of milk and Parmesan cheese.  Salt & pepper to taste.  Mash and set aside.

Brown your hamburger…then drain fat…add onion, garlic and toss for for a couple of minutes till onions are translucent.

Add beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, onion soup mix and frozen veggies.  Stir to mix.  Simmer for about 3 minutes.  It will remain cooking in the oven

Put mashed potatoes on top. Sprinkle a bit of parsley and grated Parmesan cheese on top…place in 350 oven for about 30 minutes..till top of potatoes are nicely browned.

I cooked mine in a cast iron skillet so I could transfer it to the overn…dirtying only that pan.
