Shepherd’s Pie


  • 1 tablespoon bacon grease or oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 pounds ground turkey (ground beef, pork or chicken work too)
  • 3 teaspoons Lawry’s season salt
  • 2 teaspoons Adobo seasoning
  • 3 cups frozen mixed vegetables, cooked and drained
  • 1 cup prepared gravy (I use Bisto onion gravy granules)
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4-5 cups prepared mashed potatoes


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large skillet, sauté the onions in bacon grease or oil until tender.
  3. Add in the ground meat, sprinkle everything with Lawry’s and Adobo seasoning, and cook and break it up until browned; drain any excess grease.
  4. Spread the meat into the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch baking dish (grease the sides if desired).
  5. Evenly spread the frozen mixed vegetables over the meat.
  6. Pour the gravy evenly over the vegetables.
  7. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the vegetable layer.
  8. Using a rubber scraper, carefully spread the mashed potatoes over the top of the cheese, making sure it covers the entirety of the pan all the way to the edges.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes or until the mashed potatoes begin to brown.
  10. Scoop onto plates or into bowls and serve with a salad or other preferred side dish.
