Here's simplicity for a Shepherd's pie the kids might even eat....
When we make this baked dish, we refer to it as "shepherd's pie" because our family, friends, and associates vaguely know what we're making. (otherwise we get bemused looks)
We make it as simple and basic as we can, especially when the grandkids come for dinner because they like it that way and will actually eat all the ingredients!
So, for the fussy eaters:
1 lb ground turkey seasoned with S & P, garlic powder, Italian seasoning.
1 Pkg frozen cut green beans,
1 Pkg instant mashed potatoes,
1 can of sloppy joe starter mix or any jar of plain pasta sauce.
(if making for a larger group, just double up on everything)
Combine the ground turkey, beans, and sauce on the bottom of a baking dish, cover with mash potatoes, and sprinkle generous amount of shredded cheddar cheese on top. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 20 mins. No brainer simple but the kids will actually eat it in great quantities.
