I hated Shepherd’s Pie as a child, probably because I hated mashed potatoes too. Weird. Very happy I grew out of that but not so happy there are no leftovers today to eat for lunch. I am still thinking about this yummy Shepherd’s Pie. This dish delivers everything you hope for in a Shepherd’s Pie but is lightened up by using very lean ground beef instead of lamb and a blend of cauliflower and potatoes for the topping. If you wanted a low Carb recipe or to lighten it up even more, you could use only cauliflower mash.

Instructions

(Hide Photos)
1

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.

2

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the potatoes and cauliflower and cook for 8-10 minutes until soft. Add to a blender with 1/4 cup milk, sour cream, and salt and pepper to taste. Blend to desired consistency. Add some of the cooking liquid if you need more liquid.

3

In a saute pan, brown the ground beef. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from pan and set aside.

4

Add the vegetable oil, onion, carrots, and celery. Cook for 5-7 minutes until everything begins to soften up.

5

Stir in the flour, broth, thyme, and Worcestershire and let simmer for 10 minutes.

6

Then begin the layering. Spread the beef mixture onto the bottom of your baking dish. Then pour the creamed corn over the beef and spread evenly. Then gently spread the mashed potatoes and cauliflower across.

7

Bake for 15-20 minutes until bubbling. Consider broiling for the last 3-4 minutes to brown the top. Enjoy!
