Recipe by Eileen
"My grandmother, Julia O'Malley (Nanny), always made this when I was growing up. It is neither Chinese, nor pie, so we don't know why it was called that - it's more like a shepherd's pie, but that's what it was called in our family. Believe it or not, this is great when you smush it all together and put ketchup on it! The kids love it!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

potatoes, peeled and cubed
cooked ground beef
1 (15.25 ounce) can
whole kernel corn, drained
shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
It's very tasty, very simple, very quick, and very easy to put together. I had no corn on hand, so I used our frozen green beans instead, thanks to suggestion by Volleyballmom. Rather than ketchup, my husband had salsa on his and I had Spicy Thai sauce on mine. We really quite enjoyed it and I'll definitely make it again. Made my white sauce with 3 tbsp flour, 1 c water, 1/3 c skim milk powder, 1/4 tsp garlic powder and S & P to taste. Thank you to Eileen, the recipe poster.
Tweak alert. We don't typically eat corn but I really wanted to try this recipe so I used steamed green beans. I used jarred Classico alfredo sauce for the white sauce. This was a really good recipe and a nice twist on shep pie. I will make it again. thanks Eileen
Love it as is! My mom also called it Chinese pie!
