Cooking With Ms Moore : Shepherd’s Pie

Hey Luvs!

I haven’t really done any cooking posts lately, because I haven’t tried out any new recipes.. but tonight I made Shepherd’s pie.

Growing up, we would have Shepherd’s pie almost weekly (since my mom was born in England, it’s a staple dish). Tonight, I made it from scratch for the first time, but I put a little spin on the traditional recipe.

Here’s what you will need:

  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 can of whole kernel corn
  • 2 or 3 large potatoes (I used 3 but had some mashed potatoes left over)
  • 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 pack of Club House Shepherd’s Pie seasoning mix
  • 3/4 cup water


  1. Cut potatoes into quarters (you can peel them or not, whatever you prefer. I peeled mine) Finely chop garlic cloves.
  2. Bring large pot of water to a boil; Add potatoes and garlic. Cook on medium-high heat for about 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  3. Drain water. Return to stove. Add sour cream and mash until desired consistency. Add shredded cheddar cheese, and continue to mash.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. In a large skillet, brown ground beef, onions and corn. Drain fat.
  5. Combine seasoning mix and water. Pour over meat mixture and bring to a boil.  
  6. Reduce heat and boil for roughly 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  7. Transfer meat mixture to casserole dish and top with mashed potatoes.    
  8. Bake for 20 minutes. Take out and top with more shredded cheddar cheese. Bake again for about 3 minutes, or until cheese is all melted.
