“5-Ingredient Fix Contest Entry. With two active teenage boys I always needed a quick recipe. After my son came home telling me about his friends mom's Shepherd's Pie I set out to create a simple yet tasty alternative and this is what I came up with. We are a "meat & potatoes" kind of family and my kids love it!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown ground beef over medium heat and season as desired. Drain, return to pan at medium high heat and add 2 tablespoons flour. Stir until you no longer see the flour. Add 2 cans beef consume and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer 5 minutes to thicken, stirring often.
  2. Pour beef mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 pan and top with shredded cheese. Spread Simply Potatoes Mashed Potatoes over cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until bubbly and heated through.
  3. Option: Top with Pillsbury Cresent Rolls before baking for a more traditional Shepherd's Pie.
