Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Hey Guys!

So as you can tell by the title, today is St. Patrick’s Day!  And like they said on Boondock Saint’s…



So I thought I’d share one of my favorite comfort foods in honor of today.   Don’t forget to wear green today so you don’t get pinched!

Mini Shepherd’s Pies

 This is one of my favorite dishes to make, whether it’s St. Paddy’s day or not.  Of course I usually make a giant dish of it instead of mini types, but it’s all the same.  I’ve used this recipe (which can be found here.) and I’ve also used a simple one of only Ground beef, corn, Mashed Potatoes and cheese.  So really with this you can play it by ear.
prep time: 15minutes
total time: 50minutes
serves: 6people


cost per recipe: $12.33

  • 12 jumbo-size (3 1/2-inch) foil baking cup
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup orCampbell’s® Condensed 98% Fat Free Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 cup frozen mixed vegetables (carrots, green beans, corn, peas)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 cups hot mashed potatoes
  • 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

How to Make It

Step 1: Heat the oven to 350°F.  Line 12 (2 1/2-inch) muffin-pan cups with the baking cups.

Step 2: Cook the beef in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until well browned, stirring often to separate meat.  Pour off any fat.

Step 3: Add the garlic to the skillet and cook and stir for 1 minute.  Remove the skillet from the heat.  Stir in the soup, vegetables and Worcestershire sauce.  Spoon about 1/4 cup beef mixture into each baking cup.  Spread or pipe about 1/4 cup potatoes on top of each.

Step 4: Bake for 20 minutes or until the minis are hot.  Top each with 1 tablespoon cheese.

Step 5: Bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

Recipe Tips

  • Ingredient Note: You can also use regular-size foil baking cups to make this recipe.  Reduce the mashed potatoes to 2 1/2 cups, and spread about 3 tablespoons on each mini.  Proceed as directed above.
  • Alternate Preparation: To brown the tops of the minis, bake the minis as directed above for 20 minutes.  Sprinkle with the cheese and broil for 2 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the potatoes are lightly browned.

Well that’s it… enjoy!  Do you have a holiday favorite food that you could eat at any time of the year?  Comment down below.
