Shepherd’s Pie with Sweet Potato

Shepherd’s Pie with Sweet Potato is a twist on the classic recipe.  This hearty one dish dinner is full of flavour and is an easy recipe that will satisfy any appetite.

The first step is to prepare the sweet potatoes for the top of the shepherd’s pie.  I washed 5 large sweet potatoes and pierced each one 5 or 6 times with a fork.

I then cooked them in the microwave on high.  Calculation for total time is 5 minutes for 1 potato and add 2 minutes for each added potato.  Therefore I cooked the sweet potatoes for 13 minutes.  I set them aside to cool.

Next I poured olive oil into a large skillet before dumping some extra lean ground beef in the skillet.

After breaking up the meat I added in the onion, salt and pepper.

While the meat was cooking I cut the sweet potatoes in half.

I scooped the flesh into a mixing bowl and added margarine and minced garlic.

Using a potato masher I combined the ingredients until no large lumps remained.

I cooked the meat over medium heat until no pink remained.

When the meat was cooked I added in the water and two packets of gravy mix.

I stirred the ingredients together until all the meat was coated in gravy.

Now I transferred the meat mixture into a 9 X 13″ baking dish.

Next I sprinkled some frozen peas on top of the meat.

Follow the peas with some frozen corn.

The final step was to cover everything up with the sweet potatoes.  Use at least 6 cups.

I placed the pan in a 400F oven for 40 minutes.
