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 was delicious. I did make it with homemade mashed potatoes, but, except for adding a half of a can of milk, a beef bouillon cube and a couple splashes of Worcestershire sauce, I followed it exactly. The whole family loved it.

This is probably a stupid question, but here we go lol. Do you need to mix the soup with the (water and or milk) before you put it in the frying pan?

Great easy recipe, and my ENGLISH husband absolutely loved it! I used ground turkey instead of beef. I also added fresh garlic in place of the garlic salt like some other reviewers. The cream of mushroom soup was pretty salty so I only added a bit more to taste. Also, I used condensed soup so I added a cup of beef broth and initially thought there was too much gravy, but my husband said it was perfect. He's hard to please so, thank you so much for posting!
