The Eat Food NOT Money Cookbook

Simple shepherds pie

Somebody asked for a shepherd pie recipe the other day so I thought I’d post mine. It’s pretty simple and very filling.

What you’ll need:

1 lb ground beef
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can mixed vegetables
4 c mashed potatoes, prepared
1 c shredded cheddar cheese
1 onion, chopped
1 Tbl garlic salt

Brown ground beef, drain and return to pan. Add onion and cook until it’s transparent. Add soup, veggies and garlic and mix well. Pour into a casserole dish. Spread mashed potatoes on top and sprinkle with cheese. Bake @ 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Feeds 6.

Tip: You can use any mashed potatoes you’d like with this recipe. Instant, leftover or fresh. It’s up to you. It doesn’t change the taste. I have discovered that it takes more ‘real’ mashed potatoes to cover the top. I’m not sure why but I thought I’d mention it.

ground beef – $2.00/lb
cream of mushroom soup – $0.89
mixed vegetables, canned – $1.09
potatoes – $2.00/5 lb bag
shredded cheese – cheddar – $1.50
onion – $1.12
Total – $6.60
