Mini Shepard's Pie Cups | Anchors Aweigh


Mini Shepard's Pie Cups

In all my years of cooking, I have never come across better "man food" than a Shepard's Pie. It has meat and it has potatoes. What more could a guy want? I've mentioned before that I like to make dinners that also serve as great leftovers for lunch the next day. After the husband loved these Chicken Pot Pie Cups so much, I realized I could do the exact same thing with Shepard's Pie! Thus, these Shepard's Pie Cups were born. 

Not only did they make a great dinner, they made even better leftovers the next day. How easy is it to throw 2-3 of these cups into a lunchbox and go? So easy. I liked the cup design because there was really no mess. However, we had some leftover mixture that I served atop a biscuit half the next day (kind of like Chicken a la King), and we loved this variation too. Do what works for your family!

1 can refrigerated biscuits (10-12 count)
1 lb ground beef
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp minced garlic
2 Tbsp flour
3/4 cup beef stock
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 cup frozen peas and carrots
1 tsp dried parsley 
1 1/2 cups cooked mashed potatoes (about 2 medium potatoes or 1 box)

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. 
2. Flatten and mold a biscuit into each tin and bake 6-8 minutes. If biscuits have risen too much after this, gently press them down while still warm. Set aside. 
3. In a large skillet, brown ground beef and drain any fat. 
4. Stir in salt, pepper, and garlic. 
5. Add flour to the skillet and stir until blended into a paste. 
6. Add beef stock, Worcestershire sauce, and peas and carrots and stir to combine, cooking for 1-2 minutes. 
7. Fill each biscuit tin with meat mixture and top with a large spoonful of mashed potatoes. Sprinkle the tops with parsley. 
8. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until edges of biscuits are golden brown.

Yum! My husband loves Shepard's Pie, but making a whole one is too much for just the two of us. These little mini ones sound just right!
