Shepherd's Pie

Back near St. Patrick’s Day Mr. C decided he wanted to try to make Shepherd’s Pie. Paula Deen is one of his favorite people! J So he looked up one of her recipes to get some ideas he then checked around looking at others. The end result was absolutely delicious!!! This is definitely one of our new favorite meals.

Mild Chedder Cheese
Onion optional
Peas/Green Beans (we made once with GB and once with peas I like the peas better but either will work)
Mashed Potatoes

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Begin by browning ground beef with onion if desired.
Make mashed potatoes. We boil 6 to 8 medium potatoes and mash with 1/3 cup butter, ½ cup sour cream, and ½ cup milk. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Put corn and peas (and any other desired veggies) in with ground beef and cook on medium heat for five minutes.
You will need to mix 1 cup of bisquick using box directions.
We use a 13x13 casserole dish.
You will layer mashed potatoes, beef and veggies, layer of cheese and then make a layer of the bisquick mix on top.
You will bake for 30-45 minutes or until bisquick is brown.

I have never tried a Shepherd’s Pie with a bisquick type topping but this just added to the appeal. Now this is definitely not a low calorie dish but it is definitely high on the comfort food list. Hope you enjoy!


  1. Hi Brittany...this looks so good! My son studied abroad in London a few years ago and grew to love Shepherd's Pie. When we were there for a visit I was able to order it twice and both times it was delicious. I am going to save this recipe and hopefully make it for my son when he's home for a visit. I'm following you now...thanks for visiting my blog. Hope your week is going great! ~Ann
