Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie Recipe

Publisher Photo
As a child, shepherd's pie was one of my favorites. But now, having cut white potatoes out of our diet, I experimented with sweet potatoes in this dish for two. The result is different, but just as yummy! —Tanya Marcketti, Golden, Colorado

Doubled the recipe so I could use up my leftover White & Sweet Potato Mash Potatoes. (So I omited the potato step etc). I only had @ 6 oz tomato paste on hand so I used that and added some water & ketchup to the onion/beef. Used 8 oz. frozen corn & 8 oz. peas. Also around the edge I created a biscuit crust w/ Biscuit Complete (1 cup mix, 1/2 cup milk and 2 TBsp. butter melted). Yum~

This dish was excellent. I needed to feed more than 2, so I incresed the amounts to: 2 sweet potatoes, 1 lb ground round, 1/2c. onion, 16 oz tomato sauce, 1/4 tsp each of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. Only used 1 can corn, and added 1 can green beans. Doubled the amounts of butter, salt and pepper for potatoes since I used 2 potatoes. Will also try adding peas next time. Very yummy!!!!!

This was wonderful. What I did different was to use ground turket in place of the beef and no salt corn and Bob Evans mashed sweet potatoes.
