Shepherd's Pie

My mom is out of town so I am left fending for myself. Which means I will be cooking a lot more, but it also means I might not be able to update as often as I would like.

I kind of just threw a bunch of things together.

  • Vegetable oil
  • 1.5 lb ground beef
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1.5 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 tbsp. tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp. rosemary leaves
  • 1 tbsp. parsley flakes
  • Mashed Potatoes prepared from a box! (After a long day of work I do not feel dealing with potatoes) 2-3 servings should be enough.
  • Optional
    • Extra paprika
    • Butter
    • Mozzarella Cheese

  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 F.
  2. Pour some vegetable oil in a pot.
  3. Add onions.
  4. Once the onions have a slight color to them, add the ground beef and all the spices and tomato past.
  5. Keep stirring and mixing up the ground beef until it turns brown.
  6. I also added a little bit of grated mozzarella cheese.
  7. Continue to cook for 15-20 minutes.
  8. Once thoroughly cooked, place in a 9X11 pan. Smoothen it out.
  9. Prepare mashed potatoes according to box.
  10. Add mashed potatoes on top of meat. Smoothen out. Make sure the mashed potatoes are up against the sides.
  11. Sprinkle some paprika on top.
  12. Use fork to create lines across dish.
  13.  Cut up slice of butter and place on top too. or until potatoes start to brown.
  14. Bake for 20 minutes
