    What a shock! A long time friend of mine served this dish, only the cooked ground beef first in dish, creamed can corn then potatoes topped with cheddar cheese. Ive been making it for 30 years. A great quick dish after a tough day at work.

    II know my DH will love shepards pie.think I will make it for him this week but will use mashed whole potatoes instead of instant mashed although we really do like the instant garlic potatoes.Think I will try some different vege’s this time as DH is not a vege lover but I am.

      I bet it will taste even better with homemade mashed potatoes. My husband prefers boxed potatoes. Isn’t he crazy? I never ate instant mashed potatoes until I met him. My mom always made homemade.

    I always make this dish but added 1 (8-3/4 oz.) can of peas.

    I make similar, but use frozen mixed vegges. Learned about Sheppard’s pie from an Indian cook on a ship in the Persian Gulf. Always thought it was some European dish that I brought back from my travels.

    I use the same ingredients only reverse it…… ground beef on the bottom, corn next cheese next cheese then mashed potatoes that way the taters may even get a little crispy if you put it under the broiler for just a few. You can top with more cheese! YUM :)

      I bet it turns out great with the potatoes on the top browned a little. This would throw my husband for a loop. He probably wouldn’t eat it because it wasn’t the way he was used to lol.

    This is how I make mine. (My Mother-in-law called it “Hamburger Pie”)
    1 lb cook hamburger meat
    1 can cream corn
    6 potatoes
    Shredded cheddar cheese

    Mix meat and corn together.
    Put in bottom of casserole dish.
    Make mashed potatoes out of the potatoes.
    Put mashed potatoes on top of meat and corn mixture.
    Top with cheese.
    Melt cheese on top, using oven or microwave .
    Eat and enjoy!
