This Shepherd’s Pie is an easy, delicious meal that you can serve to your family in under 30 minutes and know that they will love it.
Some life lessons you need to learn the hard way and once learned, you will never make that same mistake again. Not taking a large enough portion of Shepherd’s Pie the first time around is one of those lessons learned through disappointment and frustration. Hear me out on this one …
My husband LOVES my Shepherd’s Pie .. I don’t mean a casual appreciation for a delicious dish.. I mean L-O-V-E, love!!!! I even tried to step up my game and make him REAL Shepherd’s Pie… all fresh, homemade ingredients, meat stewed for hours in a rich beautiful sauce, fluffy hand whipped potatoes… the REAL DEAL. My reward?…. “Um, this was ‘good’ but please don’t ever mess with my Shepherd’s Pie again.”
And the lesson that I have had to learn the hard way is if I do not gauge my portion needs appropriately, I will be out of luck because once he hits that bubbling hot casserole dish, there is no more Shepherd’s Pie left to be had… none.. gone.. done deal… sorry you are still hungry, you should have planned better…
Now, while my little heart just pitter patters at the joy of knowing I have made his day happy happy happy, my heart might be fluttering by my tummy is grumbling!!! Apparently, all is fair in love and hot Shepherd’s Pie!!
Well, once I realized what game we were playing, I made up my own set of rules. Now I make sure to get to that casserole dish first and I load up!!! .. If I take too much, I can always give him what is left over … otherwise I might was well just go make a PB & J and have it waiting on the sidelines.
Insert unhappy face HERE!
So now I present to you the easiest, yummiest recipe that I know your whole family will love just as much as mine does. It’s not fancy, there’s no hours of prep or stewing involved, there’s no complicated instructions or a long grocery list involved (I use corn but feel free to substitute any veggie you like). This is just an easy, delicious meal that you can serve in under 30 minutes using convenience products from your local grocery store… and who doesn’t love that, especially during that first week the kids go back to school?
Don’t forget… get there first!
