Paula Deen's Shepherd's Pie

Martha Price


I got this recipe off of The Food Network after watching Paula prepare it on her show. It is delicious! Although the original recipe didn't call for cheese, I sometimes add some between the meat and Bisquick layers. Rich and decadent!

1 Hr


1 small
1 and 1/2 lb
ground beef
8 oz cans tomato sauce
1 and 1/2 c
mixed vegetables of your choice
salt and pepper to taste
8 - 10 medium
medium red new potatoes
1 and 1/2 c
12 Tbsp
1/2 c
sour cream
2 c
biscuit mix (bisquick)


1Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
2Beef Layer: Chop and saute onion in 2 tablespoons butter. Add ground beef. After beef is browned, add tomato sauce; mix in vegetables (except potatoes). Add salt and pepper to taste.
3Potato Layer: Peel and slice potatoes about 1/4 inch thick. Cook in boiling water for about 15 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender. Whip potatoes with electric mixer until moderately smooth - a few lumps are okay. Heat to warm 1/2 cup of the milk and add to potatoes, along with 1/2 cup butter and the sour cream. Add salt and pepper to taste. Whip til mixed, adding a little more milk, if needed, for the desired consistency.
4Biscuit Layer: Mix Bisquick and one cup milk. The mixture should be thinner than regular buscuit mix, but not runny.
5Spray a 9 by 9 by 2-inch (or similar) baking pan with cooking spray. Layer half-way up with the mashed potatoes. Next, spread the mixed vegetables over the potatoes, then the meat. Pour Bisquick over the meat. Melt 4 tablespoons butter and drizzle over top.
6Bake for 35 - 45 minutes until top is golden brown.
7If you have leftover pork or beef roast with gravy and vegetables from Sunday dinner, they can be used to make this a quick nd easy mid-week dinner!
