Shepard's Pie

Maybe Shepard's pie isn't the most unique dinner, but it might be the easiest. So, here is why I love it--I'm pretty sure that every kid likes mashed potatoes, cheese and ground beef. The combination is therefore flawless. Plus, you get to use up leftovers! Maybe it isn't the healthiest dinner out there, but many a middle school day was brightened by a shepard pie dinner.

Mom would always try to sneak in vegetables, much to our dismay. It is pretty hard to hide a can of green beans, even if it is surrounded by gravy. But, you can always try that too.

Shepard's Pie
1 pound ground beef, browned and drained
2 packages brown gravy mix, mixed with water
6 cups mashed potatoes
2 cups grated cheese
Mix gravy and ground beef
Pour ground beef in a 9x13 pan. Layer mashed potatoes on top, then cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly.
