"Shepherd's Pie is a wonderful 'company meal' to share or to send for my husband's lunches. We like to pack it in disposable containers and share it with home bound friends who are recovering from an illness or with our grandma. Since everything is in one container, it is easy to transport and hearty to eat. If desired, replace the chives with parsley."

onions, peeled and diced
frozen green beans, thawed
shredded Cheddar cheese
2 (10.75 ounce) cans
condensed cream of mushroom soup
potatoes, peeled and diced
cream cheese, softened
salt and pepper to taste
This recipe worked well. However, I did make some changes. I used the serving converter and made enough for 5 people. I substituted frozen corn for the cauliflower and I omitted the cream cheese from the mashed potatoes. Someone else complained about the milk not being enough for the mashed potatoes. Honestly I didn't even look at those measurements. I just made real mashed potatoes the way I always do (and I never measure there either) and it worked just fine, so probably "mashed potatoes to taste" would be a good addition to the recipe. I also forgot to add salt. Even without salt, this dish came out well and it was a hit with the kids (1 and 3). It worked great for finger food for my 1 yr old, and even my husband enjoyed it. It is super easy and a great quick fix meal. I would definitely recommend it, and it will be on our repeat menu as well. I give it four stars, for being a good, balanced, tasty meal. The only reason I wouldn't give it five is because five seems like it ought to be reserved for something really fabulous, ingenious, or out of the ordinary.

I found this recipe as I sought to rid the fridge of a head of aging cauliflower. It was delicious- preferable to the recipe not containing the cauliflower. I did omit the cream cheese in the recipe, and everything turned our wonderfully! Thanks!
This recipe was very, very, good. It made wonderful leftovers. The only thing we changed was that we only used two onions, that was plenty. Also, we used real mashed potatoes instead of instant. But it was a very good recipe that we'll use again when we have company for dinner.
This recipe was worth a second helping! Omitted the cauliflower and added mushrooms to the ground beef. My family loved it!
Great basic recipe!!! I used ground beef, minced garlic, and made my own real mashed potatoes. Hubby and I loved it but will tweak it according to our tastes. Am going to sprinkle red pepper chips in meat and onion mixture to make it spicer. I see endless variations in this future pie. Thanks for sharing!
I mashed the cauliflower w/the potatoes (can't tell it's even there). I also added about a cup of sour cream to the cream of mushroom soup.
I have three recipes for Shepherds Pie, and I think this is my favorite. My kids like it with corn better than with green beans. This is a versatile recipe.
Great recipe. Never made this before. Cut down a little on the onions and cooked the vegetables a little first. Had lots of leftovers that heated up well and tasted just as good as the first day.
