Mock Cottage Pie

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Marion Librarian

I made this up one night when I had leftover soup (hence the "mock" in the title) & veggies. Even my 6 yr old had seconds! You can use any type of veggies, I just had frozen on hand. I used Kraft grated Parmesan since that was on hand, too!

All in all this wasn't a bad recipe. Not super quick to make, but still easy with simple ingredients. I made it as written, but next time I'll probably leave out the Worcesterchire sauce as it seemed to add an odd flavor to the mix, as well as permeate the house with it's smell. (I'm not a big fan of it anyway).

  1. Place potatoes in pot of salted water, bring to a boil.
  2. Drain potatoes when done, (about 10-15 min), add cream cheese, milk and parmesan & mash together until smooth and creamy.
  3. While potatoes cook, brown ground beef, chopped onion and garlic in olive oil.
  4. When meat is nicely browned, drain any grease, then add soup, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, coriander and vegetables.
  5. Mix well in skillet and simmer for 10 minutes.
  6. Pour meat mixture into oven-proof baking dish.
  7. Spread mashed potatoes over the top & gently rake a fork through the potatoes to make nice ridges for browning in the oven.
