-Shepherd's pie is the ideal comfort food especially good when served on a chilly winter evening. This version fully of tasty beef, veggies, mashed potatoes, and cheese will have your family asking for seconds. Let's start by placing a 17-ounce package of refrigerated cooked beef tips with gravy into a large saucepan over medium heat. You can also substitute 1 pound of ground beef cooked and drained mixed with 1/2 cup reduced sodium beef broth. Add 2 cups of frozen mixed vegetables, 1/10 and 3/4 ounce can of condensed tomato bisque soup and mix them together. Now season with 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce, 1 teaspoon of dried minced onion, 1/2 teaspoon of crushed dried thyme, and 1/8 teaspoon of black pepper. Stir it well and bring the beef mixture to a boil, making sure to stir it occasionally. Spoon it into a lightly greased 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Next, place one 24-ounce package of refrigerated mashed potatoes into a large bowl. Use whatever variety your family prefers. You'll need about 2 and 2/3 cups. Stir it until it's smooth. Then spoon the potatoes into 6 mounds on top of the beef mixture. Bake it uncovered in a 375-degree oven until it's heated through and bubbly on the edges. This takes 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the baking dish from the oven and sprinkle on 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Let it rest for about 10 minutes to allow the cheese to melt and then call the family to dinner. And there you have it. Easy Shepherd's pie.
