Tasty Tuesday: Easy Shepherd's Pie

Tasty Tuesday
I think that to be true shepherd's pie, this recipe ought to use ground lamb. Ground beef is just so much more widely available here, though, not to mention cheaper; you could, of course, substitute lamb for beef as you choose.

Today's is a quick recipe, one I make--like spaghetti--when I want dinner in 45 minutes or less. (It's also one I thought I could write up quickly. I have got to get back to my essay.)

Easy Shepherd's Pie

1 lb ground beef
1 can green beans
2 cans mushroom soup
1/2 small/medium onion, chopped
Garlic powder
Mashed potatoes, prepared however you like them
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Season the ground beef with thyme and garlic powder and brown over medium heat on stove. Add onions and continue cooking till the onions begin to turn clear.

Remove from heat and stir in mushroom soup (do not add water.) Drain the green beans and stir those into the beef and soup mixture.

Top with dollops of mashed potatoes and sprinkle cheese over everything. Bake about 15 minutes or until cheese and soup bubble.


  1. Haha! I made that tonight... or at least my version which is very similar.

  2. And by tonight I mean last night... which was Tuesday. I am a dork.

  3. Sweet. I knew you'd like that one. You're the one who suggested the onions to me originally, I think. :D

    Can you be related to me and not be a dork? I'm not sure it's possible.
