Shepherds pie

Today I am the recipient of a recipe from a lovely co-worker at my new job. She was having her lunch yesterday and it looked so delicious, I had to ask, "what is that?" She told me it was Shepherds pie and said she would bring me the recipe. Sure enough, she did.

Thank you to my lovely co-worker. You know who you are!

Shepherds pie

1 1/2 lbs hamburger
1 package of kernel corn (frozen)
1 can tomato paste (small)
1 onion chopped (optional)
Dried onion, is also an option, you just shake it over the hamburger when it is browning you need enough to cover the meat -
2 large potatoes should do it or you can use instant
3/4 cup water
salt and pepper to taste

Brown your hamburger, onion with the salt & pepper
Drain any excess fat
Put the mixture back in the pan and add 1/2 can of tomato paste.
Add the water and stir together, simmering until the water is gone
Make your mashed potatoes and microwave your corn

In a casserole dish layer:
hamburger mixture
top with potatoes and add pats of butter over top of the potatoes
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

This is lovely! Notice I am using this word over and over again...since it is so English. Much like this recipe.

  1. Shepherds do not look after cows. they look after sheep. Shepherds pie is with lamb, cottage pie is with beef.
