Okay, so I admit. Shepherd’s pie may not look like the most appetizing dish ever, but it is oh so good. And it’s simple. I like that – simple. It’s four ingredients. Yup, I said four. One, two, three, four. And guess what? You probably already have all four ingredients ready and waiting in your kitchen. Just a warning though, this meal is so good and comforting that you WILL want to take a nap after.
Let’s get started:
1 lb. ground beef (or in my case, ground venison – I’m sure ground turkey would be just as good)
2 packets of instant mashed potatoes (The real stuff would probably be pretty amazing too, but I said easy and I meant it.)
2 cans of creamed corn
Shredded cheese (as much or as little as your heart desires)
This is what our ground venison packaging looks like…
Anyway, back to the recipe!
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Brown your ground (enter your meat of choice here) in a skillet.
Then take out an oven safe bowl and layer your ground meat and creamed corn. Technically you could just dump the ground meat on the bottom and then dump the creamed corn on top of that, but I wanted to feel special and layer my ingredients. It made me feel a little fancy.
Cover the oven safe bowl with foil.
When the timer is up you should have this cheese-y goodness.
This is best when served hot! Mix it up and ta-da! Deliciousness.
This is GREAT for cold nights.
But I would gladly eat it year round. =]
