Easy Shepherd's Pie

Mickey Smith

This is a great meal to make ahead and can be warmed in the oven or microwave.

2 lbs. ground meat (any kind will do or use Tofu)
1 onion, chopped
1 can cream of something soup (any kind will do)
1 can green beans (any vegetable will do), can use more than 1 kind
mashed potatoes (these can be instant or left overs)
sliced American cheese (enough slices to cover top)
salt & pepper (to taste)
garlic powder to taste

In a pan fry ground meat, season to taste with what ever you like (I use garlic, salt, pepper, thyme). Put in onion and cook until soft. While meat and onion are cooking, cook potatoes and mash if needed. When meat is done, add soup and vegetables in pan and heat through. Place meat and vegetable mixture in casserole dish, layer on mashed potatoes smooth out on top. Put in oven at 350° F for about 10 min or until tops of potatoes start to brown take out of oven and layer on cheese put back into oven till cheese melts . Serve.

*This last step can be skipped if you are going to freeze or put in fridge heat and serve later.
