Sweet potatoes give our classic recipe a sweet twist.
1 package Mostly Made Shepherd’s Pie Mix
1 pound ground beef (or lamb)
Mashed sweet potatoes
3 Tb unsalted butter
1.5 Tb heavy cream
3/4 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp table salt
1.5 lbs sweet potatoes (2 or 3 medium) peeled and cut into 1/4" rounds
Ground black pepper
- Preheat oven to 400°.
Prepare the sweet potatoes. Slice sweet potatoes into 1/4-inch rounds. Melt butter in a 4-quart saucepan over low heat. Stir in the cream, sugar, and salt; add the sweet potatoes and cook covered, stirring occasionally until the potatoes fall apart when poked with a fork, around 30 minutes. Off the heat, mash the sweet potatoes in the saucepan with a potato masher.
- In 10” oven-safe skillet, brown ground meat over medium heat until no longer pink. Add the Mostly Made Shepherd’s Pie mix and stir to combine. Cook over medium heat until bubbling.
- Off heat, smooth mashed sweet potatoes evenly over the top of the shepherd’s pie.
- Bake 15 minutes, uncovered, until bubbling around the sides. Broil on high for 1-4 minutes until potatoes crisp.
