Shepard's Pie

So tonight we had Shepard's Pie:

you will need:

1 lb ground beef
2- 2 1/2 lbs potatoes
1 can corn
seasonings to taste (garlic, pepper, cumin, etc)


set oven to 350°
peel & boil the potatoes: while they are cooking: season & cook ground beef- drain.
while the beef is draining go ahead & heat up the corn in the same pan with some garlic.
in a medium sized casserole dish, layer first the ground beef & then the corn- set aside

to make the potatoes:

in order to make your mashed potatoes super silky & awesome, i suggest using a ricer instead of a mixer or masher. once your potatoes are boiled- go ahead & drain them. in the same pot, go ahead & heat up about 1/2 stick unsalted butter & about 3/4 a pint of heavy or whipping cream (you may need more or less depending on how many potatoes you cook or how you like them) - bring this to a low simmer & stir in about 1-2 tsp of white pepper. turn off heat.

while the mixture is still hot, start ricing your potatoes right into the pan with the cream & butter mix:

one all of the potaoes are riced, go ahead & fold the potatoes & cream/butter mixture together- these will be the most awesome potatoes EVER! there will be NO lumps & no nasty skins by mistake- just silky, buttery, peppery potatoes.

once these are done, go ahead & spread them over the beef & corn layers in our casserole dish. sprinkle the top w/some pepper & paprika & pop it in the over, uncovered, for about 25-30 min. the top crusts up really nicely and everything else stays moist & yummy!

God Bless
