Shepherd’s Pie is a quick and easy one-dish meal. This version is a bit different than traditional recipes, due to the cheddar cheese soup. Our family especially enjoys this dish with a bit of shredded cheese added to the meat filling.
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 (16 oz.) pkg. frozen mixed vegetables
- 1/3 c. water
- 1 (11 oz.) can cheddar cheese soup
- 1/4 tsp. thyme
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2-3 cups mashed potatoes (leftover, instant, whatever)
- Cook ground beef and onion in skillet until meat is browned; drain.
