Simply Potatoes® Mashed Potatoes
This was a BIG hit!!! Even better the next day. I did make a few changes. I used a jar of mushroom gravy in place of the beef and added some sliced mushrooms at the same time as the veggies. Also I used 3 pouches of Betty Crocker instant Garlic Mashed Potatoes. My hubby really liked it and said "I could definately eat this again"
I thought this recipe was okay. My kids and my husband really like it though. I used extra lean ground beef to cut down on the fat but I think it also maybe made it less flavorful. It was definitely easy to throw together.
This recipe was a hit at a potluck with my friends. I couldn't find the Simply Potatoes so I used instant. I don't think they were as good as the other ones would've been, but no one noticed. I added a half a bag of frozen peas and carrots to the mix too. Delicious!
i was looking for a sheperds pie recipe and this one seemed to be the best. i cooked it for 10 people at work and it was a big hit. i added a few dashes of worchestersihre sauce and a small can of tomato paste. i like ground beef and gravy mixes to be a little tomatoy, not like spaghetti sauce, but with that tomato flavor. i also melted some cheese on top. i didnt broil it like it says for the last few minutes. my only problem was i ran out of potatos, buy an extra container. A++ recipe.
I had an adventure with this one; i bought diced tomatoes with garlic and onion accidentally instead of the plain. I used canned veggies instead of frozen. I used a packet gravy mix and I couldn't find the Simply Potatoes so I used instant, and surprisingly, everything came out great!
This was a very simple recipe. I had everything on hand, and managed to throw it together fairly quickly. I used herb and butter seasoned instant mashed potatoes, and took the advice from other reviewers and topped it with cheddar and mozzarella cheese. I don't think I have ever had shepherd's pie without cheese on top. When I make this next time I will cut down on the thyme (think I might have put a little more than recipe called for), and definitely add more salt and pepper.
Overall I recommend this!
SO Easy and really turned out tasty. Kids really loved it which is a bonus.
I used Heinz jarred beef gravy which I wasn't too sure about but tasted good. I used garlic salt instead of thyme and I used garlic mashed potatoes.
We will make this again.
This was fantastic!! Everyone told me "this is a do again" (how we rate new recipes). I did make a couple changes based on what other posters suggested: 1/2 the thyme, cheese on top of the potatoes (prior to broiler), cream of celery soup, and a little extra salt and pepper. Also, the store I shop at does not carry the Simply Potatoes mashed potatoes so I substituted them for another brand of refrigerated potatoes. Very easy and cheap to make!
