Shepherd's Pie

Serves: 4

1 lb. ground beef
1/4 c. onion, diced
1/4 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper, divided
4 medium potatoes, peeled and sliced
1/2 c. chive & onion cream cheese
1 T. butter
1 T. milk
1 can (14.5 oz.) creamed corn

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef and onion; drain. Season with salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Place the meat mixture in a greased 9-inch square baking dish. Meanwhile, boil the potatoes for 20-25 minutes or until soft. Drain and place in a large mixing bowl. Add the cream cheese, butter, milk and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. Mix on medium speed until smooth. Pour the creamed corn evenly over the beef mixture. Spread the mashed potatoes evenly over the corn. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the corn is bubbly around the sides.

Tips: This shepherd's pie was delicious and I loved the extra flavor the potatoes had from the chive & onion cream cheese. I usually mash potatoes by hand but to save myself time I used my KitchenAid Stand Mixer. I did not "make-ahead" this meal so I wrote the directions accordingly. However, to use this as a make-ahead meal let the meat and potatoes cool, assemble the dish then cover with foil and refrigerate. When ready to bake, remove the dish from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Uncover and bake for 35-40 minutes at the same temperature.

This sounds yummy! I love a recipe similar to this, but shepherd's pie is made with lamb. What you've got here is actually called cottage pie. Thanks for sharing!

We add grated cheese and cream of mushroom or celery soup inbetween layers. It is yummmmy.
