How To Make shepherd's pie

  • 1
    In a frying pan, fry the hamburger over medium heat until it is cooked. Drain. Add the onions and fry until they are soft and translucent.
  • 2
    Add the garlic, rosemary, Worcestershire sauce and beef broth to the pan. Cook on medium heat until the liquid is absorbed. Turn off the heat.
  • 3
    Follow the directions on the frozen vegetables and by microwaving them until they are done. Drain. Add the cooked and drained peas and carrots to the pan and stir into the hamburger mixture.
  • 4
    Spread the hamburger mixture evenly into a 9 X 13 baking pan and set aside.
  • 5
    Put 1/2 cup of milk into a pot and add the cream of mushroom soup (do not add water). Cook for a few minutes until well blended. Pour evenly over the hamburger mixture in the baking pan. Spread the shredded cheddar jack cheese over the soup mixture.
  • 6
    Boil the peeled potatoes until soft. Drain. Add a couple tablespoons of butter and a little milk to mash the potatoes until smooth. Add the parley and salt and pepper to taste. Spread the mashed potatoes evenly on top of the other ingredients in the baking pan. Top evenly with the parmesan cheese.

    Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until the casserole is bubbling around the edges. Loosly cover with foil and let rest 10 minutes before serving.
