Shepherd's Pie

Ingredients listed are how our family made this.  Original recipe can be found at

This recipe can be made ahead of time and stored in fridge.  Another family favorite and one I can make ahead of time for Dave when I have to travel!

For a healthier version, try fresh vegetables, homemade mashed potatoes and ground turkey instead of listed ingredients.

4 pouches of Betty Crocker Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1 10oz bag of frozen mixed vegetables
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 pounds lean ground beef
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 cup of water
1 packet of brown gravy mix
1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce


  • Prepare mashed potatoes according to directions. Mix in 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste; set aside.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add vegetables and cook until tender but still firm, about 10 minutes. Drain and set aside. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C.)
  • Heat oil in a large frying pan. Add ground beef and Worcestershire sauce; cook until well browned. Pour off excess fat, then stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Add ketchup, water and brown gravy mix. Stir and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Spread the ground beef in an even layer on the bottom of a 3 quart casserole dish. Next, spread a layer of vegetables. Top with the mashed potato mixture and sprinkle with remaining shredded cheese.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown
