1 lb of lean ground beef
1 meduim onion chopped
2 1/2 cups of frozen mixed vegetables
1 can diced tomatoes with Italian herbs, undrained
1 jar (12 0z.) beef gravy
1 3/4 cups water
2 tablespoon butter or margarine
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup milk
2 1/4 cups plain mashed potato mix (dry)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg slightly beten

Heat oven to 375. Spray 12 inch skillet with cooking spray, cook ground beef and onion over meduim high heat 5 to 7 mintues, stiring occasionally until beef is thoroughly cooked; drained

Set aside 12 peas for garnish. Add remaining frozen vegtables, tomatoes and gravy to ground beef. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to meduim low, cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are crisp tender, stiring occassionally.

Meanwhile in a meduim sauce pan, bring water, butter and garlic powder to a boil. Remove from heat; stir in milk, dry potato mix and cheese. Stir in egg until well blended.

Spoon ground beef mixture into a ungreased 8 inch square or or oval glass baking dish. With large spoon make six mounds of potatoe mixture on top of beef mixture to resemble ghost. Place 2 reserved peas on each mound to resemble eyes.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until potaotes are set and mixture is thoroughly heated.

* you can use refrigerated prepared potaoes instead of the dry mix. Stir in Parmesan cheese and egg before spooning on the beef mixture.

Sam,
I was getting on the computer to look for a Shepard's pie recipe! I have some leftover mashed potatoes and fresh green beans and other fresh vegies and thought that might work. So I'll be cooking your recipe up tonight. It's for me and the hubby, so I might bypass the decoration part, but then who knows. It'd be fun!

Big Hugs,
Janey

Sam, Thanks so much for the recipe, it sounds yummy. I'm going to try it next week. I never knew you could make Shepards Pie from ground beef. I've only ever made it with leftover roast of beef that I grind up and therefore we don't have it very often. This way I can make it anytime. :D
Hugs, Pipes
