Wordless Wednesday: Rachael Ray’s Shepherd’s Pie

My favorite meal to cook. It does take planning and time — and a lot of dishes — but I love it. Recipe is great, just make sure to add salt to the potatoes.

Boil quartered potatoes in salt water. I leave skins on.

Chop carrots and an onion.

Brown ground beef, add salt and pepper.

Add carrots and onion to browned beef.

Make a roux with butter, flour, a cup of beef bouillon and 1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce. This will be added to meat and veggies, along with a half cup of frozen peas.

Keep helper occupied (and dog).

Mash potatoes with sour cream, butter and salt.

Plate potatoes aside -- and then save a dish by using the potatoes' pot for assembling pie. Bottom: meat, veggie and roux mixture.

Top with mashed potatoes. Sprinkle with paprika.

Broil for 5 minutes to brown the top. Add a little parsley on top, and serve. Kids will say, as they’ve been trained to, “I’m not hungry, thank you.” THEY ARE TOTALLY MISSING OUT. It’s delish!

  1. Looks yum. Maybe I can give it a try with ground chicken or turkey? (Found you via TM, so wanted to come and say hey!)
