Ghetto Shepherd's Pie

I am a weirdo. I sort of love bland comfort foods. In an effort to please The Hubby however, I make attempts (sometimes successful, sometimes not so much) to jazz up some of my favorite comfort foods and make them more interesting. I made this on Thursday and it may still be a bit of a work in progress, but it's most definitely worth writing down before I forget that I got fairly close to a dish Hubby will actually enjoy =)

Ghetto Shepherd's Pie
Serves 6

1 lb ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
16 oz frozen veggies (choose your favorites)
4 potatoes
1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, Mexican blend, etc.)
Garlic salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and prepare a 2.5 quart baking dish.
  2. Peel and halve potatoes and boil in a large pot.
  3. In a large skillet brown the ground beef and onion together.
  4. Add half the can of soup, the Worcestershire, and the marinade (my two secret weapons of choice these days!) to the beef.
  5. Once combined, stir in the veggies and pour mixture into the baking dish.
  6. Drain potatoes and return to the hot pot.
  7. Mash potatoes together with the remaining half of the soup, cheese, salt, and pepper (use milk to thin out if necessary).
  8. Spread potatoes on top of the beef mixture in the baking dish.
  9. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
The beef mixture was tasty, but the potatoes needed a bit of work according to Hubby. I'll definitely be using this as a jumping off point though in the future!
