How to Make sweet-potato and sausage shepherd's pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400
    spray a regular loaf pan with cooking spray
  2. Boil potatoes until tender in a large pan.About 15 min.
  3. Combine olive oil, garlic and onions in a large skillet and saute for 5 min or until tender. Add sausage,beef and pepper. Saute until meat is cooked through..about 8 min. Add the beer and simmer until reduced by half..about 4 min.
    I usually remove the veggies after cooking and saute beef/sausage separately..then drain fat. You can do all together..might have more flavor!
  4. In a small glass mix the cornstarch with water. Add this to meat and stir until thickened. Remove from heat
  5. Spread the meat mixture in bottom of loaf pan, in small bowl mix the corn/creamed corn together and layer if over the meat.
  6. When potatoes are cooked, drain and return to pan. Add milk, butter and brown sugar, salt to taste, then mash till smooth. Spread over corn mixture
  7. Bake 35 min or until potatoes are lightly browned at the edges
