Mama’s Shepherd’s pie -cream base

As a kid my mother would make Shepard’s pie, up until a few years ago I thought the way she made it was the normal way. The way my mom makes it is a quick version for someone who needs something quick.


1 pound of ground beef

1 15 oz can of Cream of Mushroom Soup

1 15 oz Green beans

1 15 oz can of corn

1 15 oz can peas

4 cups of mashed potatoes

Splash of heavy cream or milk

Salt and pepper to taste


Pre heat your oven to 350

In a Skillet brown you ground beef till cooked all the way through drain and set aside.

In the same Skillet add the soup stir and cook over a medium heat, add the splash or milk or cream just enough to change the consistency just slightly. Once it bubbles add the meat back to the Skillet add salt and pepper to taste and mix.

Drain the liquid from the canned vegetables. Begin to layer in a 9×13 Baking Dish with the first layer vegetables, second layer meat mixture and lastly mash potatoes.

Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes.

*** You can top with cheese, also add any vegetables you like instead of the above and also use cream of onion or celery.
