CLASSIC SHEPHERD’S PIE!

Hello, and good morning!

Happy Monday! How was your weekend I hope you had a great week!

There is so much that is changing at this time of year, the birds are making their homes, the sun is shining in between when we are getting snow here in Saskatchewan!

Where are you from? How is your weather are you having a normal spring? You having one like we are here in Saskatchewan where it is super nice one day and then it is super cold and snowing the next!

I should be used to it by now I have always lived in Saskatchewan but, it doesn’t make it any easier when you have cabin fever and you were just itching to get out.

It also doesn’t help that I don’t like the cold, and so on the cold days we stay inside and do extra laundry LOL!

So, with the week that we had there was definitely a couple cool days in there and on cool days why not make a good old shepherd’s pie!

Growing up I don’t really remember having Shepherds pie! I made it years ago when I was pulling us out of debt, and really really watching our grocery bill! We also only had two kids when I had started the budgeting, which makes a big difference but that’s not the point.

Shepherd’s pie I find to be one of the best budget friendly meals you can make I will make extra and freeze leftovers really easy! I find shepherd’s pie is really nice because you can pre cut the pieces and freeze them individually, you can do a pan and just freeze the pan and all you have to do is heat it up in the oven! It is a wonderful family and budget-friendly meal!

I thought I would take you a long and show you how I make shepherd’s pie in this house for on those colder days or on those tighter months!

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • ground beef
  • diced onions
  • diced peppers
  • garlic
  • mixed vegetables
  • potatoes (mashed)
  • grated cheese
  • spices…. salt,pepper,parsley…. what ever you want in it

You’re going to cook the ground beef, add the onions peppers and garlic and fry them together. Then add the mixed vegetables if you are using Frozen and let them simmer and unthaw with the meat.

Peel and boil the potatoes, strain add butter and milk and mash. Do you think you can put two aside until you were ready.

You are going to put the ground beef mixture into the bottom of a pan would ever say the pan when you’re making. Add mashed potatoes and spread them on top evenly top with as much cheese as you want as it does melt down quite a lot.

Preheat oven to 350 and bake for about 20 to 30 minutes until the cheese is brown and bubbly.

If you were making into a freezer meal simply at aluminum foil to the top but your label on.

If you do not have time to unthaw it before you go to cook it next time that is okay all I want you to do is keep the foil on, put the pan into the oven while it is preheating and add about 45 minutes to it.

This is one of the easiest freezer meals that I have done. You can make tons and stack them in your freezer they are good for up to six months in your freezer if properly covered and stored.

It’s the perfect time of year to start getting my freezer cleaned out and stocked up for summer with some summer meals! I’m going to try my hardest to blog as much of it for you guys as I can.

  1. Mmmmm! I love this dish! When I heard this called Cottage Pie, I had to look into it because…squirrel. Cottage Pie is apparently what it’s originally called and they used lamb. In this part of the world we use beef or venison.
