Shepherds Pie

I got this recipe over ten years ago from the mother of one of this kids I used to watch. It's one of my favorite because if you just change a few things (soup, cheese, potatoes) it can be a whole different meal!!

2 lbs ground beef
1 can cream of celery soup
1 package frozen corn
1 package mashed potatoes (sour cream and chives works well)
1 bag shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 350, brown ground beef and drain. Add cream of celery soup and mix together. Make mashed potatoes according to package directions. Take 9x13 pan and layer ingredients, meat mixture, corn, mashed potatoes and cheese. Place in oven and cook 25-30 minutes. 

We always eat off this dish twice. A little side note, the recipe says to put the mashed potatoes on top of the corn, I know that's how shepherds pie is supposed to be but I think it's hard to spread the mashed potatoes over corn so I put the mashed potatoes on top of the meat and then add the corn and cheese. BOTH ways work so just layer how you want :)

Also as I said in the beginning it's so easy to change a few things to make a different dish. Use cream of cheese soup and taco seasoning for a Mexican spin. Try using tomato soup and mozzarella cheese for an Italian taste. Play around and I bet you will find something you love!
