Easy Shepherd's Pie

One of my favorite dishes to make is Shepherd's pie.  I used to make it all the time, but had taken a break for a few months.  After making it this past week, I am a little mad at myself for not making it for so long.  I had forgotten how good it was!  Now I want to share this recipe with you.

Now it's hard for me to tie down a recipe.  When I get a dish that works for me, I pretty much fly by the seat of my pants.  So bear with me.

1 lb ground turkey (or beef)
1/2 an onion diced
4-6 potatoes
1 bag of frozen corn
1 bag of shredded cheese (I use a mexican blend but you can choose just cheddar if you want)
salt and pepper

How do I do it?
Brown the ground turkey then add in the diced onion.  While the meat is cooking, start boiling the potatoes to mash.  Also cook the gravy according to the directions on the package.  When the gravy is done, pour it into the pan with the meat and onions.  Mix together.

Then pour the frozen corn over the meat mixture and smooth out.

When the potatoes are done cooking, mash.  I add a little bit of milk to mine, but you get to mash them to the style that suits you.  When they are mashed, spread evenly over the corn.

Smother the potatoes with the cheese.  The amount you use at this point is up to you.  Some nights I put more cheese, other nights I put less.  It's really how I feel at the moment.

Then you put this in the oven at 425 for 20 minutes.

And then in case you didn't know, you eat it.  And go back for seconds.  And thirds.  



  1. ..........U should freeze some and have Matt give U access to an Amazon Drone and send me some!!!!

  2. Made this for dinner last night and it was a success. Heath said that it was really good too. I think next time I will have to make a bigger batch though. We ate almost the entire thing between the two of us.

    1. Always make extra, it makes for great left overs ;)


Leave me some love! I read them all and it always makes me feel warm and fuzzy when people comment!
