Ground Beef Shepherds Pie
This is an “oldie but goodie” on the food list. Old fashioned; yes. Really great meal in a casserole dish? Absolutely! I don’t know if this one is exactly like others available online, but this is how it’s made at our house.
1-2 lbs. ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 can (10 oz.) beef gravy
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables
1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper
2 c mashed potatoes
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese – optional
1 – In a large skillet, cook the beef, onions and garlic; drain.
2 – Stir in gravy, vegetables, sauce, salt and pepper.
3 – Transfer to a greased baking dish.
4 – Spread potatoes over the top.
5 – Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 30 minutes.
Yield = 4 servings
Note 1 – We like to add shredded cheddar cheese to the top – last 5 to 10 minutes of baking time.
Note 2 – Substitute a can of peas and carrots (or other vegetables)
for the frozen mixed vegetables when you have none in your freezer.

Southern Corn Casserole
My family loves corn, in all it’s incarnations. We needed a nice sweet side dish at Easter for the bone in ham and this one really filled the bill. Along with mashed potatoes, okra and a nice strawberry concoction, this corn recipe was the perfect addition.
