Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 large sweet potato
  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (8-3/4 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • Dash each ground cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon 2% milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1. Scrub and pierce sweet potato; place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 10-12 minutes or until tender, turning once.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook beef and onion until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the corn, tomato sauce and spices. Place in a 1-qt. baking dish coated with cooking spray; set aside.
  • 3. When cool enough to handle, cut potato in half; scoop out the pulp and place in a small bowl. Mash with butter, milk, salt and pepper. Spread evenly over meat mixture.
  • 4. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 2 servings.

"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."
