    1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)
    1-1/2 cups Classic Beef Gravy
    1-1/2 cups chopped onions
    1-1/2 cups frozen peas and carrots blend
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    2-1/2 to 3 cups mashed potatoes

    Garnish
    2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese or cheddar cheese (optional)

Directions

    Prepare Classic Beef Gravy.
    Preheat oven to 450°F. Heat 10 to 12 inch cast iron or nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add Ground Beef and onions; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Stir in gravy, frozen vegetables, and pepper.
    Top beef mixture with potatoes, spreading evenly; sprinkle with cheese, if desired. Bake in 450°F oven 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly and cheese begins to brown. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Tips:

Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.

Serving Suggestions:

Shepherd's Pie can also be baked in a 2-quart baking dish. Following step 1, transfer meat mixture to a baking dish and top with potatoes and cheese. Baking times are the same.
