Shepherd’s Pie is one of my favorite casserole dishes. I love the combination of the ground beef with the mashed potatoes on top. It’s the best comfort food. Ever.
Velveeta has just come out with Cheesy Casserole Dinner Kits that provide us ingredients to make some of our favorites the quick and easy way. I am all about quick and easy. This entire meal only took about 40 minutes from start to finish.
In the box, you get potato flakes for the mashed potatoes, seasoning mix, vegetables (carrots and peas), and the Velveeta cheese. With just a few additional ingredients, and a very easy assembly process, the Shepherd’s Pie was made and ready to eat. I added ground beef, a can of corn, and used some milk and butter in the preparation process.
Once the beef mixture is made, you layer it in a 8×8 casserole dish.
While I was doing this, I was also making the mashed potatoes in the microwave. I layered the hamburger mixture, the Velveeta cheese, and spread the mashed potatoes evenly on top.
This dinner kit makes approximately 4 1/2 servings, which is perfect for our family of 3. It ensures we usually have a little bit left over for lunch the next day.
Now that I’ve had this dinner kit, I can’t wait to try out the other two!
