I have always wanted to make Sheperds Pie, but for some reason, never have. The ingredients are simple to put together, and the results of this humble meal are delicious! Especially satisfying on a rainy day. Here we go.
First, preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
Dice one onion and saute til soft. Add one pound (or so) of lean ground sirloin and season with salt, pepper and garlic. Brown meat, then drain pan before adding rest of ingredients.
Now, some of you have asked about what kind of bread I was making yesterday. So I will include that recipe too, since it is time to get your bread machines out again!
1 packet of yeast
3 cups bread flour
3 T dry milk powder
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1 1/4 cup warm water
Follow your bread machines instructions for placing ingredients into machine. One of mine calls for the yeast first, and water last. The other is totally different. Select white bread setting and in a few short hours you will be enjoying a fresh baked warm slice, with melted butter settling into all of those "nooks & crannies."
