Directions

Beef Layer:
Saute onions in 2 tablespoons butter.  Add ground beef.  After beef is browned, add tomato sauce; Mix in vegetables.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Potato Layer:
Peel and slice potatoes 1/4 thick.  Cook in boiling water for approx 15 minutes or until fork-tender.  Whip potatoes with electric mixer; mix until moderately smooth.  Don’t over beat them; a few lumps are nice.  Add 1/2 cup heated milk, 1/2 cup butter, and sour cream.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Whip until mixed.  Adjust thickness by adding more milk, if desired.

Biscuit Layer:
Combine biscuit mix and 1 cup milk. The mix should be thinner than normal biscuit mix but not runny.

Spray a 9x9x2 inch pan, or any similar casserole dish.  Layer half way up with the mashed potatoes.  Next, spread a layer of mixed vegetables or niblet corn on top of potatoes.  Then add a layer of the meat.  Pour biscuit mix over meat.  Melt 4 tablespoons of butter and drizzle over top.  Bake at 350 for approx 35-45 minutes until top is golden brown.

Dear Paula, Technically, Shepherd's Pie is made with lamb or, I guess, mutton, although I've never heard of it, hence the name "Shepherd's Pie! This seems to be a common misconception. Those made with beef are called Cottage Pies. Just sayin' !! Born and grew up in England.

This is a cute little dish, Paula. I changed a couple of ingredients because I had left-over roast beef with gravy. Instead of the hamburger, onions or tamato sauce, I used the roast beef and gravy with canned peas for me and frozen corn for him. Instead of the sauted onion, I used a layer of 'French's French Fried Onions'. Oh, and to make it a little quicker, I used 'Bob Even's Mashed Potatos with the sour cream. My hubby liked it so much, I made it the next night, too!

Your recipe says to add the corn or mixed vegetables to the top of the potatoes, for those who were wondering when to add. Also, instead of instant potatoes, you can use the steam mash potatoes from the freezer section - same as you preparing mashed potatoes. You can also use peas for something green - instead of mixed veggies or corn or in addition to. Recipe is great.

It looks very tasty, but surely it should be renamed as shepherds herd sheep - so it should be made with lamb mince, not beef. In Britain this would be called Cottage Pie - we make both types with mashed potato on top, although a great healthy variation is mashed sweet potato!

This looks delicious Paula, not had chance to make yet as buiscuit topping hard to come by in the Uk. One small point though: I remember watching this recipe on your show following a trip you'd made to England. If that was part of the inspiration for this dish, then it is a 'Cottage Pie' as it uses beef. A Shepherds Pie is called that as it uses ground Lamb. I've not seen many shepherds tending to cows...

I love Shepherd’s Pie. When I made this recipe I had never try Shepherd’s Pie. My mother never made it nor did I ever have anywhere else. What made me try it is that my mother-in-law loves Shepherd’s Pie and well I love my mother-in-law so I decided to try to make it. It was a hit, she loved it, and so did the rest of the family. I now have added my own little twist to make it my own. My family loves it so much that they constantly request this for dinner. Thanks so much Paula! Tinisha

I love this! its very easy and quick to make and i use instant mashed potatos so it cuts the time in half. also for the people asking about the vegtables. I mixed one can with the meat and layered a can of corn on top of the potatos. The first time i made this i just used 1 can of corn mixed in the meat and it was just as good.
