Shepard’s Pie

We’ve always enjoyed the good tasting homey feeling of a good Shepards pie. Often it can be found on pub menus where it pairs nicely with a tall pint of your favorite beer.

Today I decided I’d try and make it at home. Here’s my go at it in photos below. It turned out pretty good although next time I think I’ll add more herbs.

Here’s a basic recipes for Shepards pie below. (I used fresh vegetables for mine.)

* 1 lb ground beef

* 2 cups mashed potatoes, hot

* 4 ounces cream cheese, cubed

* 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided

* 2 garlic cloves, minced

* 4 cups frozen mixed vegetables, thawed

* 1 cup beef gravy

DIRECTIONS

Preheat over to 375°F

Brown meat in skillet and drain.
Mix potatoes, cream cheese, 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese and the garlic until well blended.

Stir vegetables and gravy into meat.

Spoon into 9-inch square baking dish.

Cover with potato mixture. Don’t worry about it being perfectly even, the more rustic it looks, the better.

Sprinkle with remain 1/2 cup shredded cheese. Bake for 20 minutes or until heated through.
