I took something I have been cooking for years and cut the portion size down for two people with a bit of leftovers. This recipe would fit into a bread loaf pan and should feed 3 hungry people.

How to Make Simple Shepherds Pie for Two

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat to 350° F.
  2. Prepare instant potatoes according to directions to create about 1 1/2 c prepared potatoes. Add 1/2 minced garlic and set aside.
  3. In a medium pan, add oil and brown meat. Add onions and the remaining 1/2 garlic and cook until translucent, but do not burn garlic. Add dry gravy packet and 1/2 c. water into a separate bowl and whisk together. Add mixture to meat, stirring until heated through and thickens.
    Spray loaf pan with non-stick spray. Add beef, onions and gravy to the bottom of a lightly sprayed bread loaf pan. On top of meat, sprinkle on mixture of peas, bell pepper, celery, carrot and corn. Top this with prepared potatoes either with a pastry bag or dollop potatoes on top and smooth out. Sprinkle cheese on top of potatoes and add a few shakes of dried parsley flakes. I do not season with any additional salt as the gravy packet has salt, but I do add pepper.
  4. Cook in the oven for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted.
