How to Make Shepherd's Pie - the cheap way!

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat over to 375 degrees. Then brown your hamburger and make 6-8 servings of instant potatoes.
  2. Drain grease from hamburger then mix in mixed vegetables and cream of mushroom soup.
  3. pour meat/veggie/soup mix into a 13x9 inch pan and spread around evenly.
  4. spread grated cheese evenly over meat/veggie/soup mixture.
  5. spoon mashed potatoes evenly over cheese layer
  6. Add more grated cheese over mashed potatoes
  7. Cover with tin foil and bake for 30 minutes (long enough for it to melt the cheese and be hot through and through).
  8. We like to serve it with simple cornbread. Served with a big spoon or spatula. :)
