Sausage Shepherds Pie

August 1, 2009

I don’t know about you, but I LOVE Shepherds Pie! I came across this recipe on All Recipes.com. I gave it a try and think it really is great. It meets all my criteria; cheep, easy, makes a lot. I was going to add some shredded cheese to it but forgot as I was making it.

  • 1 pound Ground Sausage
  • 1 (12 ounce) jar prepared beef gravy
  • 1 (10 ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 (24 ounce) package Mashed Potatoes
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In skillet, crumble and cook sausage over medium heat until browned. Drain on paper towels. In bowl, combine sausage, gravy, vegetables and Worcestershire sauce.
  2. Pour into a greased 2-quart casserole dish. Spoon mashed potatoes into even layer on top. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until hot.

On piece of advice, do not add any salt. Between the gravy and Worcestershire sauce there is plenty of it! There is really not much to say about this recipe. You really can’t mess it up! I used “loaded” mashed potatoes, but you can use anything you want. Here are some photos of preparing the dish…

Browning the sausage…

At the same time I was preparing the mashed potatoes. Just follow the directions on the pack…

Next I just put everything into the meat mixture and spread it evenly on the bottom of my baking dish. The veggies go in still frozen if you were wondering…

The I smoothly covered the mixture with the mashed potatoes and it was ready for the oven…

Here it is fresh out of the oven…

And a bad shot of it on my plate…

Like I said, very cheep! Here is the price breakdown…

Sausage $2.50

Potatoes $0.99

Veggies $1.39

Gravy $1.19

TOTAL $6.07

Lots of fun for a little over $6.00! I already had the Worcestershire sauce, if you don’t just add a couple dollars to the total. You will find that Worcestershire sauce lasts a long time so get a small bottle. I hope you like this!
