Semi Homemade

I feel like I'm channeling Sandra Lee. My husband is sick and not wanting much in the way of food. I decided to make something for myself that he doesn't eat. Shepherds Pie! It was getting late and we went to the grocery store at 7:30 and didn't get back until 8:30. So I bought some quick store products to make things go faster.

Shepherds Pie

About 1 lb ground beef
1 can of yellow corn, drained
I had some really small carrots to chop up
Chopped green onion, about half a bunch.
Almost a whole bag of frozen peas
1 jar of beef gravy
A scoop of minced garlic from a jar
1 package of microwave ready mashed potatoes
Shredded cheddar cheese
Bacon Bits

First I put some olive oil in my pan and browned the ground beef.
Then I drained the liquid out.
I added all my veggies into the pan and cooked them for about 5 minutes.
I sprinkled in my salt, pepper, and bacon bits.
Then I poured in the brown gravy and mixed that with the meat and veggies.
I poured the meat and veggies into a glass casserole dish
Into a plastic mixing bowl I dumped the mashed potatoes and I added handfuls of cheddar cheese.
I stirred those together well and I dropped spoonfuls of mashed potato mixture on top of my meat.
Then I smoothed out the mashed potatoes to cover up the meat.
I put the shepherds pie into a 400 degree oven for about 30 minutes.
