Hi everyone! This is Britney from The Princess and Her Cowboys. I’m excited to be here and grateful to Wanda Ann for letting me share a fun and easy recipe for you! I love a quick dinner so I can spend more time hanging out with family or getting done some of the other things I need to. So here is my Shepherds Pie recipe, which was a family favorite ever since I was younger. I never knew that most people put tomato soup in it until I was married!
Since I hate waiting for potatoes to boil, I got my cubed potatoes and salt in the crock pot and turned them on high for about 3-3 1/2 hours. By the time I was getting everything together, they were ready to mash. Then prepare them as usual, i.e. butter, salt, pepper.
Brown 1 lb ground beef. I use some salt and pepper just to flavor it a little bit.
Next you’ll take one can of cream of mushroom soup and one can of cut green beans and mix it all together. You can then pour it into a casserole dish (spray with cooking spray to make the clean up a little easier later).
Top with mashed potatoes and shredded cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes and you’re good to go!
- 2 large sweet potatoes
- cooking spray
- 1 and ½ cups roughly chopped mushrooms
- 2 tablespoons buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
- ½ cup blue cheese crumbles
- 15 large basil leaves roughly chopped
- smaller basil leaves to use for garnish, if desired
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
- Slice the potatoes thinly, into ¼ inch thick rounds, or thinner. Thinner slices with be crispier, thicker slices will be softer.
- Lightly spray the rounds with cooking spray, and place on a baking sheet.
- Bake for 12 minutes, then flip and bake for about 8 more minutes.
- While the rounds are baking, combine the mushrooms and buttery spread and microwave for about 30 seconds on high.
- Stir until melted (if needed, microwave again).
- Add the blue cheese and chopped basil and stir until combined.
- After the potato rounds have baked, add about 1 tablespoon of the blue cheese topping to each round.
- Bake an additional 3-4 minutes until hot and melty.
- Garnish with additional basil leaves and serve.
Hope you enjoy it!

I want to thank Britney for today’s post. As many of you know I broke my arm a couple of weeks ago and so I’ve not been able to do much on my blog, not to mention any baking or cooking. Britney was so sweet and offered to be a guest to help me out. How sweet is that! I love shepherds pie and can’t wait to be able to make her recipe, it sounds and looks delicious, good ole home cooking. Be sure and stop by Britney’s blog, The Princess and Her Cowboys and say hi.
