Beefy Baked Potatoes

Shepherd Potatoes 12

When I was developing my $10 meal recipes for Sweetbay Supermarket, they gave me the idea of developing a different type of Shepherds Pie. While my Guinness Shepherds Pie is wildly popular, I didn’t want to use beer in their recipe and wanted to take the step of making mashed potatoes out of the equation. So I made an easy Shepherd Pie Filling and put it over baked potatoes and topped it with cheese! YUM!

I love serving “different” meals to my family. And yep, it’s only $10 to make this dinner.
It might come in under if you run to Sweetbay Supermarket this week because 80% lean ground chuck is $2.79 lb.

    Great idea. Tasty and a full meal in one dish, I like ones like that.

    I instantly thought of three alternate titles for when I steal -errr borrow – this idea from you:
    “Ooops, someone dropped the Shepherd’s Pie”
    “Upside down Shepherd’s Pie”
    “Australian Shepherd’s Pie”

    Ha! I totally thought of shepherd’s pie when I saw the picture of this recipe. I love shepherd’s pie and twice baked potatoes, so these will definitely be going on the menu!
