This easy Shepherd's pie is versatile and quick to make. You can use any combination of veggies.
Cooked carrots, onion, peas, broccoli... I bet you could even put some chunks of cooked sweet potato, or spinach in there! creativity is on your side. 

Since we are using a seasoning packet I don't use any additional salt on the filling.

Ingredients for the filling:
- 1.5Lb of 80/20 ground beef
-  Half a cup of frozen corn
- 8oz of button mushrooms, cleaned and quartered
- 1 packet of Coleman's Shepherds pie seasoning
- 1 cup of water
- 3 Tbsp chopped parsley
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 Tsp of dried oregano
- 1 Tsp of onion powder
- Black pepper
- A pinch of paprika

Secret ingredient
- Half a cup of whole milk

Ingredients for the mashed potatoes:
- 4 large potatoes, peeled and cut
- Half a cup of milk
- 3 Tbsp of butter
- Half a cup of sour cream
- 1 Tsp of garlic powder

Step 1:

Step 1

- Set your oven for 400F. 

- Start the potatoes boiling.

In one cup of water add the seasoning packet, stir and set aside.

- In a large sauté pan heat the olive oil. Add the ground beef and the secret ingredient: whole milk! the milk keeps the meat moist and tender. 

- Add the parsley, onion powder and black pepper. Use a potato masher to separate the ground beef.

- Cook until well browned.

- Drain on a colander.
Shepherd's pie is made from Sheep not Cows. What you've made is a Cottage pie.
Piks, I never knew! very interesting. I used the meat my family would eat, we don't like sheep :)
That sounds so good! I don't think I've ever had shepherd's pie, thanks for sharing the recipe!
