Shepherd's Pie Cup Cakes from Tasting Kansas City

I love this recipe from Tasting Kansas City . How cool!!!! Perfect for a potluck or party. Follow her @tastingkansascity.

You'll need:

    1. 1 box of Mostly Made Shepard’s Pie Mix

    2. 1 lb ground beef

    3. 1 can of jumbo biscuits

    4. 28 oz mashed potatoes (prepared mashed potatoes of your choosing)

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

  2. Fill cupcake tin with liners

  3. Open can of biscuits and cut each biscuit round in two (through the middle) so you end up with twice as many thinner biscuit rounds

  4. Press biscuit into the bottom and sides of silicone lined muffin cup

  5. Once oven is preheated bake 6 minutes - if biscuits rise too much to hold meat then press biscuit down immediately after removing from oven

  6. While biscuits cook, prepare prepare mashed potatoes as stated on the package

  7. In a 10" skillet, brown ground beef over medium to high heat - Once browned, add in Mostly Made Shepard’s Pie Mix and simmer until hot

  8. Fill each biscuit with meat mixture

  9. Add one "ice cream scoop” of mashed potatoes on top of biscuit + meat

  10. Place in oven and bake 10 minutes

  11. Broil for 2 minutes to add color and crisp on top

    *** Depending on the size of your muffin tin, you might end up with extra Shepherd's Pie Filling and potatoes. I used a ramekin to make a smaller classic Shepherd's Pie and top with remaining mashed potatoes. ***
