Spooky Shepherd's Pie Recipe

Halloween: Celebration Food

Pillsbury says "Whip up some ghoulishly good fun with instant mashed 'ghost' potatoes that top a deliciously rich ground beef and vegetable casserole."

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 bag (12 oz) Green Giant® Valley Fresh Steamers™ frozen mixed vegetables
  • 2 cups Progresso diced tomatoes with Italian herbs, undrained (from 28-oz can)
  • 1 (12-oz.) jar home-style beef gravy
  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons margarine or butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 1/4 cups instant mashed potatoes
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten

DIRECTIONS
1. Heat oven to 375°F. Spray large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add ground beef and onion; cook until beef is thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain.
2. Set aside 12 peas for garnish. Add remaining frozen vegetables, tomatoes and gravy; mix well. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.
3. Meanwhile, in medium saucepan, bring water, margarine and garlic powder to a boil. Remove from heat; add milk. Stir in potato flakes and cheese. Add egg; blend well.
4. Spoon ground beef mixture into ungreased 8-inch square (2-quart) or oval (2 1/2-quart) glass baking dish. With large spoon, make 6 mounds of potato mixture on top of beef mixture to resemble ghosts. Place 2 reserved peas on each mound to resemble eyes.
5. Bake at 375°F. for 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes are set and mixture is thoroughly heated.
