Cobbler Pie- A Lighter Shepherd’s Pie Recipe

meat pie


When I’m strapped for time I love to throw together this quick, delicious, 30 minute meal!  This meal is PERFECT for any season!  I love that it’s so light compared to a thick saucy shepherd’s pie recipe– it makes this dish a great alternative when you don’t want such a rich and heavy dish but want some shepherd’s pie. 🙂

I usually keep all ingredients on hand at all times that way I can easily throw it together for a last minute meal– and make extra– it’s AMAZING reheated the next day for lunches!

Ever in the mood for Shepherd's Pie but don't want to eat a dish that's so heavy or time consuming to make? This dish is light and delish!
Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 4
  • 1lb Ground Beef
  • 1 TBS Minced Garlic
  • 2 Cups Mixed Veggies
  • 2 Cups Mashed Potatoes
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheese
  1. Brown the ground beef in a skillet with the minced garlic for flavor.
  2. Add in the mixed veggies-- I used frozen that way they're always on hand-- I usually use peas and carrots but whatever you have on hand works well.
  3. Pour the ground beef and veggies into a casserole dish.
  4. Make your mashed potatoes and spread on top of casserole dish.
  5. Top with shredded cheese.
  6. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes.
