Shepherd's Pie is an English dish, traditionally made with lamb or mutton. Americans typically make Shepherd's Pie with beef. The English (and Australians and New Zealanders) call the beef dish a "cottage pie". Naming conventions aside, Shepherd's Pie is essentially a casserole, lined with cooked meat and vegetables, topped with mashed potatoes, and baked.
Here's my easy, but yummy version of it!
Peel and quarter 1 1/2-2 lbs. potatoes. Boil until tender.
Brown 1 pound of ground beef
Add a small onion
After the ground beef is browned add one small bag of frozen mixed vegetables and one can cream of mushroom soup. Season to taste.
Mash the potatoes and spread over the ground beef and vegetables. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese just before serving.
