  • The only Shepherd's Pie recipe I know is my mom's. She'd take about five potatoes, peel them and mash them up. Brown some ground beef. Do a layer of mashed potatoes in a baking dish, then a layer of ground beef, then a layer of frozen mixed vegetables, then a layer of about six slices of American cheese, then another layer of mashed potatoes and so on until you ran out of what you made. lol. It's really easy. We make it all the time and my daughter loves it, mostly just the melted cheese though.

    Empty both cans of soup onto the ground beef and heat. Fry the corn with a little butter and seasonings until cooked.

  • I have an easy one --- brown a lb of ground beef, with maybe 1/2 an onion. Drain grease and pour into bottom of 2 qt casserole. Pour 1 can of cream style corn on top of the ground beef. Top with mashed potatoes (I prefer real spuds over the instant kind). About 4 big baking potatoes are just about perfect (peel, boil & mash with some butter & a little sour cream). Top the potatoes with about maybe 2/3 to 1 cup of shredded cheese (we use the fiesta blend) pop in 350 degree oven for maybe half hour or so, until cheese is melted, and you're done!

  • I just made one for dinner the other night that we loved....

    1 1/4 lb lean gr. beef
    1 cup onion, chooped
    1/2 t. salt
    1/4 t. pepper
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1-15 oz. can corn, drained
    1-10.5 oz. can tomato soup, undiluted
    1/2 cup mild picante sauce
    4 cups mashed potatoes
    1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, grated

    Brown gr. beef w/onion. Add seasonings. Drain fat. In an 8x8 baking dish, spread gr. beef on bottom. Then layer the corn on beef, followed by tomato soup & picante sauce. Top w/mashed potatoes. Sprinkle with cheese.

    Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes.

    This also freezes well. B/f layering baking dish, line with first foil, then saran wrap. Fill the baking dish. Seal the saran & foil. Then put it all in the freezer for a couple of hours. When firm, remove foil-wrapped casserole from baking dish & store in freezer. When ready to eat, unwrap completely & put in original baking dish, thaw com
