Shepherd's Pie Seasoning Mix

I used to think I hated shepherd's pie, but I had only eaten disgusting cafeteria style versions and had never tried a proper home cooked one. I wanted to give it a taste, because trying to save money means eating more ground beef. It’s cheap, it’s versatile and a little goes a long way.

Shepherds Pie Seasoning Mix (single use)

2 tablespoons corn starch
1 tablespoon sugar
1 ½ teaspoons bouillon mix
1 teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne

What else you’ll need

1 pound ground beef
½ cup water
3 cups frozen mixed vegetables
4 cups mashed potatoes

Combine mix with water until fully dissolved, then add ground beef and mix thoroughly. Brown beef mixture until cooked then add veggies and cook until heated. Spread meat and veggie mixture in a large glass baking pan and top with mashed potatoes. Bake in oven until heated and the top of the potatoes begin to brown.

It was actually really good, so good that I've started making it often. My daughter especially loved it because of all the tiny vegetables mixed in with the beef.
