This Lovely Shepherd’s Pie Says Hi!

Shepherd’s Pie is cooked differently in the restaurants that I’ve been through. I love it when the top is a little bit toasted; the extra smoky flavor makes it tastier to me. I also like to hide all kinds of veggies into this dish – whatever I happen to have in the fridge, will do!


Our friends from Mr. Food have this to say about the recipe:

“Shepherd’s pie is an old English dish traditionally made with ground lamb or mutton, vegetables, and gravy that’s topped with mashed potatoes and then baked. This updated slow-cooker version by using ground beef and the convenience of frozen mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables.”


Ground beef tastes just as great! Thanks for this recipe!




1 (22-ounce) package Trader Joe’s frozen mashed potatoes

1 pound Tyson ground round

2 tablespoons Gold Medal all-purpose flour

1 (10-1/2-ounce) can French onion soup, undiluted

1 (16-ounce) package Green Giant frozen vegetable mix, thawed

1 teaspoon Morton salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded sharp Kraft Cheddar cheese




Cook potatoes according to microwave package directions.

Meanwhile, cook beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat 7 minutes, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain; stir in flour.

Add soup; cook, stirring constantly, 3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in vegetable mix. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 5-1/2- or 6-quart slow cooker.

Add salt and pepper to potatoes. Spoon over beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.

Cover and cook on LOW setting 4 hours. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.






Quick Tip: Serve with a side dish of mixed greens.

Thanks again to Mr.Food for this amazing recipe.


Do you have any recipes for whole (sliced in half) with a mixture of cheeses.
Baked in oven. Whole halves -not chopped up?
