Tempt my Tummy Tuesday- Shepherd's Pie

Keeping with the theme of St. Patricks day, I thought I would post a recipe for Shepherds pie. It calls for instant mashed potatoes, which is fine, but I use some frozen mashed potatoes that I have made previously. (See my potato post here!) Happy Tuesday everyone!

Shepherd's Pie

1 1/3 cups instant mashed potato buds

1/2/3 cup milk

2 Tbs butter

1 tsp salt, divided

1 lb ground beef

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 jar, 12 ounces beef gravy

1 package (10 ounces) frozen mixed veggies, thawed and drained

3/4 cups grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat broiler. Prepare 4 servings of mashed potatoes according to package directions using milk, butter and 1/2 tsp of salt.

While mashed potatoes are cooking, brown meat in medium broiler proof skillet over medium high heat, stirring to separate meat. Drain drippings. Sprinkle meat with remaining 1/2 tsp salt and pepper. Add gravy and veggies. Mix well. Cook over medium-low heat 5 minutes or until hot.

Spoon prepared potatoes around outside edge of skillet, leaving 3-inch circle in center. Sprinkle cheese evenly over potatoes. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat source 3 minutes or until cheese is golden brown and meat mixture is bubbly.

Yum! I love shepherd's pie. I think I'll have to include it on the menu plan for next week. I like to make a big pot roast on Sunday with lots of mashed potatoes, then make shepherd's pie with the leftovers. It freezes beautifully.

Sheperds pie is such a good winter dish, hardy and filling.
