Shepherd’s Pie Casserole
Total TimePrep: 50 min. Bake: 35 min.
I did change this recipe to suit our tastes. I had browned the ground beef the night before. I sauteed the red and orange pepper (didn't have green) with the onion in about 1 tbsp of oil until they were tender. I then added in the garlic and cooked for an additional minute. Next I added in the ground beef, 1/2 C chopped up baby carrots (which I had steamed beforehand), and about 3/4C of a mix of frozen peas and frozen corn. I cooked it all together until the ground beef and frozen veggies were hot. For the sauce, I did 1.5 times the amount because I felt like I would need more with the additional veggies (so 3/4C beef broth, 1.5 tbsp tomato paste, etc). I used pre-made mashed potatoes (Bob Evans, 24oz). Because I wasn't sure how much egg to add to my pre-made kind, I only used 1 egg white. I beat it until stiff peaks formed, and tried to fold it in, but it was very difficult because my potatoes were THICK. I think it was still worth it though, and added a little airiness to the mashed potatoes. I completely forgot the cheese, but didn't really miss it much. I'll still add it in next time though. I felt the beef & veggies were a little too salty so I will cut back on that next time (maybe because my pre-made potatoes already had a lot of salt in it?). Overall, VERY yummy, and particularly great on cold evenings. Will definitely make again!
This is peobably the best shepherd's pie I have fixed! The meat and potatoes go real good together!!
This was delicious. The change I made was using the whole can of tomato paste and half a cup of horseradish and about 1tbsp mustard .for the veggies I used a can cream corn and some peas and carrots so I omitted the peppers and forgot to buy mushrooms!

Great comfort food!
SO easy and SO delicious!! This is a perfect fall/winter meal and can be adjusted to be made lighter and healthier. Extra lean ground beef and low fat cheddar cheese. I didn't use the egg as it just doesn't sound right to me.
This recipe was fantastic! So delicious and flavorful! I added more potatoes and mushrooms to put the casserole into a 13 in. x 7 in. casserole dish. Amazing dish!
I don't normally take the time to write a review, but I had to comment on this recipe. It was so tasty! My husband & I fought over the leftovers.
This was my first attempt at making shepherds pie-it was a super easy recipe and my family devoured it! I will definetely make this again!
