BBQ Shepherd's Pie

Paige Jordan


This is a dinner that originated as a "clean out the fridge" dish and has evolved into a regular favorite in my house. It also makes an awsome pot-luck dish.

Play with it! Have fun! Let me know!

How to Make BBQ Shepherd's Pie


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown meat in skillet until well done. leave in skillet.
  2. Add vegetables and barbeque sauce and stir until well mixed and evenly coated. I sometimes leave the stove on medium and let the sauce warm the vegis a bit to make it easier to mix.
  3. Place in large baking pan and spread evenly over bottom
  4. Spread cheese over barbeque mixture and then carefully spread mashed potatoes on top, covering all filling completely. Sprinkle basil and paprika over the potatoes. Cover with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake for approx. 30 minutes. I check to see if cheese is melted by moving some of the mashed potatoes in the middle of the pan away. If you want the potatoes browned remove foil when cheese is melted and let sit in the oven until it is desired color.
  6. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, serve and enjoy! this is a great rainy/blizzard day dish.
