How to Make Better than Shepherds Pie


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

    Saute hamburger, onion and garlic in a fry pan until meat is cooked, adding chili powder about half way through.

    Remove from heat, drain.
  2. Put drained meat mixture in a oblong baking dish top with drained corn, then top with the cheese sauce ploping it by spoonfuls and the smoothing it out. Top with what ever potato you wish and put in the oven at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes until you hear it bubbling
  3. Note: I used leftover potato-broccoli casserole and sliced it a inch thick and added it to top of casserole in place of mashed potatoes. I also topped with fresh ground peppercorns
  4. the leftover potato-broccoli casserole came from this recipe
