My hubby is a meat and potatoes guy.  The first time I made this I was using up some leftovers that were in the fridge Trent raved about it and it’s bee a staple ever since.  Please keep in mind that this is not a traditional shepherd’s pie – so you could really add anything you’d like to this and it would taste great!

Super Simple Shepherd’s Pie



Brown a pound of ground meat.  I used turkey but you can use whatever you’d like or whatever you have on hand.  Add desired spices (salt, pepper, dash of paprika – you get the idea!)


Top with a bag of frozen veggies (straight from the freezer).  I like to use the mixed veggies for a good variety.  You could also use canned veggies (if so, you won’t need to cook as long).


Top with mashed potatoes.  I used two bags of instant potatoes.  You can also use leftover mashed potatoes!  Bake for 20 minutes at 350.



Top with shredded cheese and bake for an additional 10 minutes.
