Weeknight Shepherd’s Pie

IMG_9320This is just one of those true comfort foods that never gets old. And truth is, you can add or change this in so many ways that I ususally don’t have to go to the store, I just use up what I have. So this is the “basic” Shepherd’s Pie, but feel free to make additions or changes and see how you like to eat it best…


Weeknight Shepherd's Pie


2 pounds ground beef
1/2 onion-diced
garlic powder and seasoning salt-to taste
3/4 ounce package brown gravy mix
2-10 3/4 ounce cans cream of mushroom soup
2 1/2 cups water
2 cups frozen carrots and peas (thawed)
Salt & pepper-to taste
2 1/2 cups potatoes, peeled, cooked and made into mashed potatoes.
Paprika-to taste


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In skillet, brown the ground beef and onion: drain well and season with garlic powder and seasoning salt. Pour into a large mixing bowl.

Stir in the gravy mix, soup, water, carrots and peas; mix well. Spoon into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish; sprinkle with salt and pepper and top with the mashed potatoes.

Bake, uncovered, for 30 minutes or until browned and bubbly. Top with a sprinkling of paprika.


I find that this makes enough to freeze half for another time-BONUS!!

Some variations could be to change the meat to veal, ground turkey or ground chicken. Add in other favorite vegetables: corn, okra, mushrooms, etc. Add cheese into the mashed potatoes.

    This looks so delicious, Anne! I would never think of adding mushroom soup, but I can’t wait to try it now.

    I love Shepherds pie. I wish I’d seen this yesterday I would have prepared and made it this evening. We’re getting a snow/ice storm right now so we’re all snug tight at home. This would have warmed our tummy’s.
