cost per recipe: $10.39

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 package (about 10 ounces) frozen peas and carrots or your favorite frozen vegetable combination (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 2 cups prepared instant mashed potatoes


  • Tips

    • Easy Substitution Tip: You can substitute store-bought refrigerated prepared mashed potatoes or homemade mashed potatoes for the instant, if you like.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 400°F.  While the oven is heating, season the beef.  Cook the beef and onion in a 10-inch ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat until the beef is well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.

  • Step 2

    Stir the soup, ketchup and peas and carrots in the skillet.  Spoon the mashed potatoes over the beef mixture.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are lightly browned.

    This is a great recipe and an easy fix for a fast meal! But this is not a Shepherd's Pie! This is a Cottage Pie. A Shepherd's Pie is an Irish specialty and made only with Lamb! Cottage Pies are English and made with ground beef! Gordon Ramsay would scream if he saw you calling this recipe a Shepherd's Pie!

    Shepherd's pie is exactly what it's title is.....a Shepherd tends to sheep & it's little ones(lambs)...the pie is made with (lamb)....not beef(cow)or veal(calf).
