Melissa's Shepherd's's what's for dinner!

So this is a family staple...Shepherd's Pie.  There are many different ways to make it but this is how I've made it for years (a mix of my mom's recipe and my additions). 

1. 1#  hamburger, browned (with onion flakes-opt.) and drained
2. 1 can cream of mushroom soup
3. Mix these together in a 2qt baking dish
4. Layer 1/2 bag frozen corn and 1/2 bag of frozen green beans or use a bag of mixed veggies if you like
5. Spread on top of that 4-6 servings of homemade mashed potatoes, which is about 2# of potatoes
6. Cover the top with Shredded Cheddar
7. Bake 375* for 35-40 minutes, or till cooked through

Serve with buttered bread and applesauce!


  1. I grew up with a very similar recipe. The only thing different that we did was instead of the corn/mixed veggie layer we strictly used 4 cans of green beans ( drained completly). It always tasted best the second day.

    1. i grew up with just the green beans, too, but i like it soooo much better with the added corn!! i had it in an irish pub one time and it had the mixed veggies so that's how i started making it:)
