How to Make Shepherds Pie

  • 2In a large bowl, combine beef, bread crumbs, onions, egg white, ketchup, garlic, and black pepper. Mix well (using your hands works best.) Pat beef mixture over bottom and up sides of a 9" pie plate.
  • 3Layer tomato slices over beef. Sprinkle oregano over tomatoes. Spread Swiss and feta cheeses over tomatoes. Top cheese with chopped spinach. Spoon mashed potatoes over spinach. Spread evenly, leaving a 1" border around edges. Meat and potatoes should not touch. Smooth top.
