This is my mother-in-law's very simple version of Shepard's pie. My step kids and husband love this stuff! Makes great leftovers too.

Thanks for a great quick and easy recipe. I followed the recipe exactly except that I used Ground Turkey, no salt added canned items and used Low Fat Cheese. Also I used the envelopes of Cheese Flavored Instant Potatoes and two of them made about 4 cups of potatoes and that worked out about right to cover everything. I served it with Crusty Bread. It was very tasty and I appreciate the recipe. It was easy to make and inexpensive.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown beef- crumbly- drain.
  2. Mix beef, soup, corn, vegetables and tomatoes in a 9x13" pan.
  3. Make at least 2 cups of mashed potatoes (I recommend using at least twice that, but I like a nice thick coating), use the directions on the box.
  4. Spread the potatoes over the beef/veggie mix in the 9x13 pan.
  5. Coat the top with the shredded cheese (I use an 8oz bag of shredded cheese, but I like it nice-n-cheesy).
  6. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes (or until cheese is hot and bubbly).
