Shepherd's Pie

I was thinking about this recipe, because a friend had a baby and this is what she'll get tomorrow night.

Shepherd’s Pie 45 minutes @ 350 Jenn’s Mom

1 lb. Hamburger, cooked
6 C Mashed Potatoes
1-2 can Green Beans
2 C Shredded Cheddar, or Mozzarella Cheese
1-2 can Cream of Mushroom Soup

Layer, in order, in a casserole dish. Bake uncovered 30 minutes at 350 until bubbly. Sprinkle cheese to cover. Bake additional 15 minutes until cheese is melted.

This is my all-time favorite dish. To freeze for cooking later, layer all but cheese in a foil disposable dish, cover with foil. Attach cheese in a ziplock baggie with masking tape. Then thaw it for the day on your counter and cook as described above.

Edited to add : Sorry, Anne, after your comment I reread what I wrote -- you're right, the layering goes :
  • hamburger on the bottom (I fry mine with chopped onion to add in more veggies)
  • green beans
  • spread a thin (and uneven) layer of canned cream of mushroom soup
  • then mashed potatoes
  • and last cheese (after it's almost done baking, just to melt).

My friend liked it just fine.

  1. This looks yummy! I love shepherd's pie. one really dumb question: which end of the list goes on the bottom? i'm assuming the hamburger, but i always thought mashed potatoes were the top ingredient in this dish, so now i'm confused. i've been struggling for cooking inspiration lately, so think i'm going to give this recipe a try... thanks!
