    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

    2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese or cheddar cheese (optional)


    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.


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.
