    Color Guard Mom's Note:

    I got this recipe from a friend of mine years and years ago. It's one of my DH's favorites. It's been a while since I made it though, so I'm guessing at the time to bake.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Make mashed potatoes using the 10 potatoes. I boiled my potatoes, drain and then mash wtih butter and milk to a smooth consistency.
    2. 2
      While the potatoes are cooking, brown the ground beef until thoroughly cooked. Drain and rinse off grease.
    3. 3
      Grease a casserole or baking dish with butter or spray with Pam.
    4. 4
      Once potatoes are mashed, line the bottom and sides of the casserole dish with a little under 2/3 of the potatoes. Make it look like a crust.
    5. 5
      Mix together the ground beef and creamed corn. Pour into the casserole as the filling.
    6. 6
      Top the filling with the remaining mashed potatoes, spreading to the sides and having it meet the "crust".
    7. 7
      Bake in a 400 degree oven until the top is lightly browned - about 30 to 45 minutes.

      Made for Photo Tag. I make Shepherd's Pie often and I really liked the variation of mashed potatoes as a crust layer.I added some onions and salt and pepper to the meat mixture...thehusband would have fussed to no end if it was'nt in there. Here in Quebec we call this Pate Chinois...not sure why tho...LOL

      this was good. I will definetly make it again. I added a package of brown gravy to the hamburger meat as per another review. It kind of turned my mashed potatoes into a soup. Still tasted great though!

      the recipe truly meets its name poor man's shepherd's pie - although very good flavors - I would in the future add a nice thick gravy to the meat with the corn add a little onion - mushrooms and perhaps even some carrots and celery - but for the tag I made it just as the recipe outlines - good recipe thanks mom
