This variation on the traditional Shepherd's Pie is a favorite in our house. The preference is for me to make enough for left-overs.

How to Make Shepherd's Pie


  • 1In a large fry pan, brown the ground beef with 2 tsp garlic, chopped and onion, chopped.
  • 2Drain most of the fat from the ground beef.
    Add the cream of mushroom soup, and the milk to the browned ground beef. Mix well.
  • 3Incorporate the frozen mixed vegetables into the ground beef.
  • 4Put this mixture into a 9" x 13" pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • 5Mix mashed potatoes, 4 tsp garlic, and sour cream.

    ***If in a hurry, you can use 2 containers of pre-made mashed potatoes - the kind in the refrigerated section. Get 1 regular and 1 garlic and mix together. Eliminate 4 tsp. garlic from the ingredients.**
  • 6Spread the mashed potatoes over the ground beef mixture so that it is even. Optional to garnish with sliced scallion (green onion) and melted butter.
  • 7Bake @ 350F (325F if glass pan) for 35 minutes or until the gravy bubbles through the potatoes.
