Recipe for Shepherd's Pie

By Belinda

Suz, one of our readers, asked me to share the recipe for Shepherd's Pie, so here it is. Thanks for asking Suz!

To serve 4
1lb lean ground beef
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup of chopped onion
1/2 cup of chopped celery

2 tablespoons All Purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 tsp pepper

1 cup boiling water
1 beef boullion cube
(or instead of the flour and boullion cube, use Bisto gravy powder)

3 cups mashed potatoes
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
2 sliced tomatoes

Combine beef, oil, celery and onion in frying pan. Scramble fry until brown.

Stir in flour, or Bisto gravy powder, salt and pepper

Pour boiling water over boullion cube, or into the meat mixture if using Bisto. Stir into the meat until boiling and thickened. Spread in casserole.

Cover with potatoes mashed with enough butter and milk to make them soft and fluffy.

Sprinkle grated cheese over the potatoes, then cover with sliced tomatoes. Season tomatoes with fresh ground pepper and a sprinkle of salt. Add another sprinkle of cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until heated through and cheese is browning.

Don't forget to cook with love. Enjoy!
