This was easy to make. The only change I'd make in the future would be to lower the garlic salt and add straight garlic. It came out a bit salty for my taste. The most impressive thing was that my wife and both my kids liked it and ate without any arguing (A rarity in my house)

This was a quick and easy recipe to make up. We enjoyed it very much. I did make a couple of changes to the recipe to suit our taste. The main change was I added cajun seasoning to give it a spicy flavor and I didn't add the cheese untill the last 5 minutes of baking. I will definately make this recipe again.

Woah, this was really good. I changed a few things up on this one...first, I used 2 lbs of ground turkey with the onion, and drained it. I then added the one can of soup undiluted, and added one can of corn and one can of peas, both drained. I left the garlic salt at one tablespoon and also used the suggested 8 servings of instant potato flakes. It turned out *very* well, but I can see how the garlic salt and potato measurements could be too much for just 1 lb of meat. I baked it for 30 minutes but only added the cheese for the last 10. Tasted great! Thanks for the great recipe.

Unbelievably good! My father is a self-proclaimed shepherd's pie afficionado, and he said "this is the best I've ever had!" I used Paradise Valley All-Natural Creamy mashed potatoes (available at costco) and normandy-style mixed frozen veggies, which I cooked first before adding, and chopped them into smaller pieces. My Dad had two servings and my brother had THREE! I also used garlic powder instead of salt. There's so much hidden salt nowadays in everything, you really don't need to add it. EXCELLENT recipe, and this will be made again!

This turned out great.....I used a can of cream of mushroom and 1/2 a can of tomato soup, mixed in with ground meat. Frozen veggies.....and garlic powder. I also used instant potatoes and my guys had no idea. :) Everyone had seconds. Easy, quick meal. :) Inexpensive too.

This was great... everyone liked it including my picky husband (I really didn't think he would like it). He asked me to make it just like this every time.<br/><br/>So for me and anyone that wants to try it my way... I accidentally mixed two recipes together and it worked out great and it was mostly this recipe.<br/><br/>I added a packet of taco seasoning to the ground beef (1 1/4 oz or 1/4 cup). Rather than canned veggies, I dumped in a 16 oz bag of frozen veggies: Flav-R-Pac Sugar Snap Pea Stir Fry Combo. I let it cook until it was mostly done and then added in the mushroom soup and only 1 teaspoon garlic salt (the taco seasoning had a lot of flavor). At the last minute I added a drained can of corn because I decided I wanted more veggies.<br/><br/>I spread some of the potatoes on the bottom of the baking dish and some on the top. Also I used only about 1/3 cup of mexican blend cheese (and left it off my part since I don't like cheese). For the mashed potatoes I used Honest Earth Instant (they are delicious and made of real potatoes... but really easy for a quick shepherd's pie meal).<br/><br/>Thanks for a great and quick meal recipe! I'll definitely add this into my cooking rotation.<br/><br/>I think this recipe is very versatile... you could use any combo of veggies you like
