Something simple and easy for busy spring days.
Consider substituting the beef with another meat--try Shepherd's Pie with Poultry--possibly even lamb left over from spring celebrations.
- 4 to 5 large potatoes, prepared as mashed potatoes
- 3/4 pound ground beef
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1/2 to 1 T. olive oil
- 3 large cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 cup frozen whole-kernel corn
Prepare mashed potatoes according to your favorite recipe.
Warm the olive oil in large frying pan and sauté onions and garlic over medium heat until translucent, about 2 to 4 minutes. Add ground beef. Stir and turn frequently to ensure even cooking, and cook meat until gray in color; remove from heat.
Turn meat into medium-sized casserole dish. Top with frozen corn, uncooked. Spread mashed potatoes over all, to edges of dish to seal. Sprinkle with paprika.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes, until edges start to turn golden.
