I have always been, and will always be a meat and potatoes kinda girl. When I eat out at restaurants, it's about a 99% chance I am going to order some kind of red meat dish that is laden with a yummy potato starch side. I don't do fru fru dishes where the entree is the size of my pinky finger, and has small perfectly places little herbs all over the plate, making your dinner look like some sort of art installation....I like satisfying meals that make you feel good inside!
With that diatribe out of the way, I give you my idea of heaven in a baking dish. I packed in the 3 Sara Food groups (meat, vegetable and starch) into a one dish meal that is delicious, easy to make, and super satisfying (especially on these cold winter days).
Shepherd's Pie is a great combo of Vegetables, Ground Beef (or Lamb), and creamy Mashed Potatoes. The great part of this meal is you can get super creative with your additions. For example, you can use whatever ground meat you prefer (lamb, beef, turkey, chicken...), also with your vegetables, you can add in whatever you like, and leave out whatever you don’t. I made my mashed potatoes with Cheddar Cheese, but you can switch up the cheese, or just not add any cheese if you want.
Ground Beef, Veggies and a Creamy Mashed Potato Topping - the perfect 1 dish meal!
