RECIPE: Cozy Shepherd’s Pie

Cozy Shepherd’s Pie

This meal is coziness in a dutch oven, just thinking about this Shepherd’s Pie makes me happy and warm! I love how easy it is to make and that it tastes even better the days following. I hope you like it as much as I do!



  • Set your oven to broil on High
  • Put your diced potatoes into a medium pot of salted water. Water should cover the potatoes and then slightly more. Boil and cook until fork tender. Roughly 20 minutes.
  • Drain potatoes and set in a bowl with the sour cream, butter, and 1 tsp freshly chopped thyme. Mash until the potatoes are smooth – add whipping cream if needed to get the desired consistency. Add Salt & Pepper to taste.
  • While potatoes cook, in a medium oven-safe pan heat a drizzle of oil over med-high heat. Add in your carrots, salt & pepper, and cook until softened. Add celery, onion, garlic, and more salt & pepper and cook until tender. Once tender add in your garlic powder and 2 t of the freshly chopped thyme.
  • Add in your beef to the pan of veggies and cook until browned, breaking into pieces. Add in the tomato paste, flour, and a touch more salt & pepper. Stir until combined for one minute. Add in your beef stock and stir. Cook until it thickens.
  • Top your beef and vegetable mixture with your mashed potatoes leaving a 1-inch gap around the pan. Sprinkle your cheese on top.
  • Throw in the oven to broil until browned. Serve and ENJOY!
