I have a large family, and this feeds 10-12 people. Wonderful mixture of hamburger, vegetables, garlic mashed potatoes, and topped with sharp cheddar cheese. You can mix in any type of vegetable you like. Sometimes I also add fresh sautéed mushrooms to the meat mixture.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel and quarter potatoes. Put in pot. Cover with water. Add salt and 2 whole garlic cloves; bring to boil and let it cook until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, sauté celery, onion, and 2 cloves of chopped garlic in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Sauté 3 to 5 minutes. Add in the hamburger and 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce mix and cook until the meat is no longer pink. Drain off the fat.
  3. Mix the 2 cans of mushroom soup in with the meat, plus 1/2 of each can of green beans, corn, and carrots. Heats on low until the vegetables are hot.
  4. Set the meat mixture aside and make your mashed potatoes.
  5. Drain potatoes, mash up the potatoes add in 2 tablespoons of butter, 1/4 cup of milk, and salt and pepper to taste; whip with a electric mixer until fluffy. You may need to add more milk, but careful not to add too much.
  6. After the potatoes are done, spread the meat mixture out into a deep dish casserole pan (large one). Top with the remaining 1/2 can of each green beans, corn, and carrots.
  7. Next, spread the mashed potatoes over the top and smooth out. Then top with 2 cups of cheddar cheese.
  8. Bake at 350°F for 25 minutes.

Very good combination of ingredients....Nice filling one-dish comfort food. The second time I made it, I placed the cheese under the potatoes, and baked it longer until the mashed potatoes were brown and crunchy on top.

I found this a very tasty Shepard's Pie dish. It is a colourful dish with the layered vegetables. The addition of the mushroom soup is delicious. It is the first time that I have used a soup mix in shepard's Pie. The soup gave the dish a richer flavour. Thank you for sharing this humble Shepard's Pie dish with us.

This was very filling and tasty. I didn't have all those vegetables so I used frozen mixed. There were plenty of leftovers for my husband and I.
