    Default Shepherd's Pie Recipe?

    Okay, all this Shepherd's Pie talk is making me want to make it! I spent a TON of time searching and did find SOME recipes (but none here or at the SiFi recipe board). Found some on the WW site, official WW ones...They look good but....

    Is there a beloved BCB Shepherd's Pie recipe??? Or does anyone here have their own beloved recipe for it? If so, Please share!!!!

    This is the one WWCarol made on Thanksgiving. Her DH loved it. It's totally core/Si Fi/WW/and vegan. I'm sure WWCarol is ok with my posting it here. It is from the McDougall webiste.

    SHEPHERD’S VEGETABLE PIE
    Preparation Time: 35 minutes (need mashed potatoes)
    Cooking Time: 1 hour
    Servings: 6

    3 cups vegetable broth
    1 onion, chopped
    1 stalk celery, sliced
    1 green bell pepper, chopped
    ½ teaspoon minced bottled fresh garlic
    ½ teaspoon sage leaves
    ½ teaspoon marjoram
    1 tablespoon soy sauce
    1 carrot, thinly sliced
    1 ½ cups sliced fresh mushrooms
    1 ½ cups cauliflower florets
    1 cup thinly sliced cabbage
    1 cup green beans, cut in 1 inch pieces
    2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed in 1/3 cup cold water
    freshly ground pepper to taste
    3 cups mashed potatoes
    paprika to garnish

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Place ½ cup of the broth in a large pot with the onion, celery, bell pepper and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 4 minutes. Stir in sage, marjoram and soy sauce. Add the remaining vegetable broth and the carrot, mushrooms, cauliflower, cabbage and green beans. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the cornstarch mixture and stir until thickened. Season with pepper to taste. Transfer to a casserole dish. Cover vegetable mixture with mashed potatoes and sprinkle with paprika. Bake for 30 minutes until potatoes are slightly browned.

    Hint: Thin the mashed potatoes with a little soy milk or vegetable broth if they are too stiff to spread. Put them in a bowl, add a small amount of the liquid and beat by hand or with an electric beater until they are spreadable.

    When I make Shepherd's Pie, I put mashed potatoes on the bottom, a layer of peas, a layer of browned ground beef (you could use turkey), and top it off with more potatoes. I spray the top with butter flavored Pam and bake for 30-40 mins. At the very end, I turn on the broiler and get the topping brown and crispy. I love shepherd's pie!

    Easy Shepherd's Pie
    Serving Size : 4

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1 1/2 pounds ground round beef
    1 onion chopped
    1 cup vegetables - chopped carrots -- (1-2) corn, peas
    1 1/2 pounds potatoes (3 big ones) -- (1 1/2 - 2)
    8 tablespoons butter (1 stick) (use broth or water)
    1/2 cup beef broth
    1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    Salt -- pepper, other seasonings of choice

    Peel and quarter potatoes, boil in salted water until tender (about 20 minutes).
    While the potatoes are cooking, melt 4 Tablespoons butter (1/2 a stick) in large frying pan.
    Sauté onions in butter until tender over medium heat (10 mins). If you are adding vegetables, add them according to cooking time. Put any carrots in with the onions. Add corn or peas either at the end of the cooking of the onions, or after the meat has initially cooked.
    Add ground beef and sauté until no longer pink. Add salt and pepper. Add worcesterchire sauce. Add half a cup of beef broth and cook, uncovered, over low heat for 10 minutes, adding more beef broth as necessary to keep moist.
    Mash potatoes in bowl with remainder of butter, season to taste.
    Place beef and onions in baking dish. Distribute mashed potatoes on top. Rough up with a fork so that there are peaks that will brown nicely. You can use the fork to make some designs in the potatoes as well.
    Cook in 400 degree oven until bubbling and brown (about 30 minutes). Broil for last few minutes if necessary to brown.

    Description:
    "Shepherd's Pie is an English dish, traditionally made with lamb or mutton. Americans typically make Shepherd's Pie with beef. The English (and Australians and New Zealanders) call the beef dish a "cottage pie". Naming conventions aside"

    I brown ground lamb and lean ground beef and discard the fat (there is a lot with the lamb)... I add chopped onions, carrots, garlic and cook until the vegetables are soft... add frozen peas, frozen corn, some FF beef broth and a bit of Worchester Sauce... salt and pepper. You can thicken slightly if needed by using a bit of flour or cornstarch.

    I spray the bottom of a big glass-baking dish with Pam and fill it with the meat mixture. Add the mashed potatoes on top. You can make your potatoes however you like them. I leave the peelings on and mash them with FF sour cream, low fat butter, and salt and pepper.

    Top the meat mixture with the potatoes and sprinkle with paprika.

    Bake about an hour at 350F or until top is slightly browned.

    I think the lamb is what makes this Shepherd’s Pie.

    Thanks for all the recipes! I guess there isn't a particular one everybuddy's making!

    I found this:

    http://blissfullydomestic.com/2009/w...-shepherds-pie


    And this:


    Classic Shepherd's Pie
    POINTS: 5
    INSTRUCTIONS

    2 large potato(es), peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
    1/4 cup(s) fat-free sour cream
    1 Tbsp reduced-calorie margarine (use healthy oil or eliminate)
    1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
    2 tsp olive oil
    1 cup(s) onion(s), chopped
    2 medium carrot(s), diced
    2 medium stalk(s) celery, diced
    1 pound(s) uncooked ground turkey breast
    3 Tbsp all-purpose flour (points, probably 0 per serving)
    1 Tbsp rosemary, fresh, chopped (or 1 tsp dried)
    1 tsp dried thyme
    1/2 tsp table salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    2 cup(s) canned chicken broth, or beef broth



    • Preheat oven to 400ºF.


      Place potatoes in a large saucepan and pour in enough water to cover potatoes. Set pan over high heat and bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and simmer 10 minutes, until potatoes are fork-tender. Drain potatoes, transfer to a large bowl and add sour cream and margarine; mash until smooth, season to taste with salt and set aside.


      Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrots and celery; cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add turkey and cook until browned, breaking up the meat as it cooks, about 5 minutes. Add flour, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper; stir to coat. Add broth and bring to a simmer; simmer until mixture thickens, about 3 minutes.


      Transfer turkey mixture to a 9-inch, deep-dish pie plate. Spread mashed potatoes over top and using the back of a spoon, make decorative swirls over the top. Bake until potatoes are golden, about 30 minutes. Slice into 6 pieces and serve.

    And this:

    Turkey Shepherd's Pie with Mashed Sweet Potatoes
    POINTS: 6
    INSTRUCTIONS

    1 large sweet potato(es), peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
    1/3 cup(s) buttermilk (use ff)
    1/4 tsp garlic powder
    1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
    1/8 tsp black pepper, freshly ground, or to taste
    2 tsp olive oil
    1/2 cup(s) red onion(s), chopped
    2 medium garlic clove(s), minced
    6 medium baby carrots, chopped
    20 oz raw turkey sausage, sweet Italian-variety, casings removed (count points or make your own using ground turkey and seasonings)
    1 tsp dried oregano
    1 tsp dried thyme
    1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
    10 3/4 fl oz canned tomato soup, made with low-fat milk (ff milk)



    • Preheat oven to 400ºF.


      Place potatoes in a medium saucepan and pour in enough water to cover potatoes. Set pan over high heat and bring to a boil; boil until fork-tender, about 8 minutes. Drain potatoes; return potatoes to pan. Mash potatoes with buttermilk and garlic powder until smooth; season to taste with salt and pepper.


      Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; sauté until tender, about 3 minutes. Add carrots; sauté 1 minute. Remove vegetables from skillet; set aside.


      Add sausage to skillet; sauté until browned, breaking up sausage as it cooks with a wooden spoon, about 5 minutes. Return vegetables to skillet; stir to combine. Add oregano, thyme and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper; cook 1 minute. Add soup; simmer until liquid is absorbed and mixture is thick, about 2 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and spoon mixture into a 9-inch pie plate.


      Spoon mashed potatoes over turkey mixture and spread into an even layer using the back of a wooden spoon.


      Bake until filling is bubbly, about 25 minutes. Slice into 6 pieces and serve. Yields 1 piece per serving.

    That's wonderful, Donna.

    DS, not a veg-head, had 3 servings of this and called it: "Thanksgiving In A Bowl"!

    DH liked the "rich beef gravy"...Not! (It was the mushrooms, I guess ~)

    I hadn't had Shepherd's Pie for a long time, if ever! It's one of those comfort foods, family favorites type meal.

    I did the Sheperd's Pie #3 that I posted. Next time I want to try the seasonings that are in the recipe that you posted but with the my #3 recipe. There are a couple ingredients in your recipe that I can not have. If it was not for that I would try your recipe as it looks good.

    As far as winging it Sheperd's Pie is a dish that would be easy to try different things without using a recipe.
