If you have some imagination, this turns out very good. I had to add a vegetable, and it happened to be corn. Also, I had onions with the meat. Used shredded cheddar instead of american slices, but that's to be expected. Everyone loved it and it was all eaten.
I'm giving it a 3-star rating, because I think this recipe is a very basic recipe for shepherds pie, I think most people would make adjustment for flavour. It is good recipe because it's simple and doesn't require tons of ingredients for the times you just can't be bothered to do elaborate cooking. I didn't have mushroom soup or mushrooms on hand, so I guessed on making a gravy for the beef. For the gravy flavour About midway through browning the meat I added 2 chopped onions, and let it continue to cook, stirring every so often. Then after a short time, I then added more flavourings... sprinkled about 3 tsp beef bouillon powder, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper, and 1 tsp salt and stirred it around to make sure it mixed througly. To make the gravy I added a sprinkling of 2 tbsp of flour, mixed it around so that the flour coated much of the meat, and then added about 3/4 cup of milk and about 1 tbps soya sauce. I didn't need to add chopped onions but I like the texture and flavour of cooked onions with meat. You could use onion powder instead. For the mashed potatoes, I use some milk butter and salt. I topped the potatoes with shredded cheddar, since that's what I had.
Good basic recipe that got tweaked just a bit. Didn't have any golden cream of mushroom, so we used regular. Added onions after browning the meat. Layered a can of green beans on top of meat, then potatoes, then shredded cheddar (instead of American). Sprinkled chives across the top. Tasted great and was easy to put together.
Sooo good! I made a few changes to the recipe. I added worstershire to the hamburger along with onions. I used cream of chicken instead of cream of mushroom since we're not big mushroom fans. I used shredded mexican blend cheese instead of american, I added frozen peas into the middle of the pie, and lastly I did half potato and half cauliflower for the topping. This dish was so good I'll be making it again very soon!
Awesome! I left off the cheese and added sauteed onions, frozen corn, peas and carrots. Use instant mashed potatoes. Went over big at my St. Pat's dinner. Thanks!
This recipe was a success...both my husband and I enjoyed it. I used cheddar cheese instead of American and added some sauteed mushrooms to the meat. Next time, my husband asked me to add more vegetables, so I think I'll try some carrots and peas. Also, I put too much mashed potatoes on top and it bubbled over, making a mess out of my oven, but I'm pretty sure that was my own fault for using 5 rather large potatoes. Next time I'll make sure to put a cookie sheet under it, though! Yummy!
Really good. The combination of the meat, soup and cheese melted together and made a cheesy, creamy blend that tasted excellent!!!
The second time I made this, I added frozen corn on top of the meat mixture before the american cheese and added shredded co-jack cheese on top of the potatoes. My husband whom normally doesn't Shepherd's Pie thought this was really good and said he would like it again.
My mother taught me this recipe... I love it.... you can tweek it how ever you are feeling...meet...cheese... potatoes cant go wrong!
