If you would like to make a delicious Shepherd's pie but are running late, here is a quick way I came up with. Make a box of Hamburger Helper as per the instructions on the box, any beef based flavor is fine. Add vegetables of your choice. (I like carrots and peas) and some seasonings of your choice. (I like a little cajun seasoning, black pepper and a few drops hot sauce) If you really like it spicy, some sliced jalapenos are nice in this too. Now, make 6 to 8 serving instant mashed potatoes, and pour Hamburger Helper into the bottom of a casserole and top with the mashed potatoes, (adding one egg if desired) Voila!, a satisfying home cooked meal in no time at all! Shh, I won't tell if you won't!
Great idea, I would have never thought to use Hamburger Helper. I've used canned beef stew with instant mashed potatoes and sprinkled cheese on top. Yummy!
I love the hamburger helper idea. have always wanted to make this
What a quick and delicious way to have an inexpensive and great tasting meal in a hurry!
