READY IN: 50mins




  • Cheesy Mashed Potatoes:
  • Fill a large saucepan with cold water; season with salt (1-2 teaspoons). Add potatoes to the water and bring to a boil. Let potatoes cook until soft about 20 minutes.
  • Drain the potatoes and place them back into the saucepan for mashing. Add butter and cream and begin to mash potatoes into a semi smooth consistency. Once at desired texture, add cheese and mix well. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Shepherd's Pie:
  • (Begin preparing while potatoes are boiling).
  • Preheat oven at 400 degrees F.
  • Add butter and oil to a large skillet on medium heat. Saute onions, carrots, celery and garlic until tender for about 7 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Once the vegetables have softened and start to brown a little add the tomato paste and mix evenly.
  • Add the ground beef and cook until beef is no longer pink about 10 minutes.
  • Add the Worcestershire sauce and beef stock. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook and simmer for another 10 minutes. Mix in peas.
  • Transfer mixture to an oven-proof baking dish and spread evenly. Place cheesy mashed potatoes on top of ground beef mixture and spread out evenly, once the top surface has been covered, rake through with a fork so that there are peaks that will brown nicely. Place the dish into the preheated oven and cook until browned about 20 minutes.
