Shepherd's Pie is easy to make and you and your family will enjoy the end result. First we will gather all the ingredients that we will need to make shepherd's pie. You may have some of the ingredients at home but you may also have to go to the store. Then we will talk about preparing the ingredients and also how to put the ingredients together. Let's get started making Shepherd's Pie!

Ingredients can be different then what I use. I have a large family so everything I make is bigger. But for a normal family, you can use a pound of hamburger. About six to eight potatoes, that you can make into mashed potatoes. Cheese would normally be Kraft mild cheddar, about a four cup bag. Vegetable can be whatever your heart desires such as corn, green beans, and even broccoli. That is to just name a few. The casserole dish is about a one quart it just depends on how big or small you want your pie, now to move on to preparing the ingredients.

To prepare the ingredients I would start first with the potatoes just because they take the longest. Let's peel the potatoes and cube

After you have whichever kind of potatoes on to boil then go ahead and preheat your oven to three hundred and seventy five degree's.

After we have everything out and cooked it will be time to put it all together in the casserole dish.

You have gotten out the casserole dish or the baking pan of your choice, take the beef and spread it on the bottom of the dish. If you wish

you could mix the meat and vegetable together and put that in the bottom of the dish or you can just put the vegetable on top of your meat. Then comes your mashed potatoes which ever kind they may be so go ahead and spread them on top of your vegetable. Then top it all off with your cheese, the amount of cheese is up to you. Time to get the shepherd's pie in the pre heated oven for twenty five to thirty minutes. You will want the cheese to be melted of course and a little golden brown. I usually do the dishes and set the table for dinner while the pie is in the oven but that is just myself, everyone is different.

Making Shepherd's Pie is fun and easy. The hardest part is having
