What Shepherd’s Pie lacks in photo appeal, it more than makes up for in taste and ease of preparation. I like to put it on the menu a day or two after a big meal that includes mashed potatoes and green beans. Instead of sticking my leftovers in the fridge, I can cook up some hamburger and throw this meal together in a flash.
Classic Shepherd’s Pie
- 1 lb. hamburger
- 4-6 cups mashed potatoes
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 can green beans, drained
- 1 can tomato soup (11 oz.) or tomato sauce
- salt and pepper
Brown hamburger and onion. Drain. Spread meat mixture in bottom of 9×9 (ish) baking dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Layer green beans, tomato soup, and potatoes on top of hamburger. Bake uncovered at 350° for 30 minutes or until potatoes are lightly browned.
Shepherds Pie easily adapts into many variations. How do you make yours?
