Dinner With the Dews

Let me preface this by saying I have a REALLY good make-from-scratch Shepherd's Pie recipe but mama needs QUICK dinners these days so HALLELUJAH for Kraft.com!

I was hesitant to try this because my recipe is SO GOOD, but figured "HEY it's worth a try!" and boy am I glad I gave it a go!  Not only was it MUCH easier than making it by scratch, it also tastes REALLY good!  

what you need

1 pkt. (1/2 of 11.75-oz. pkg.) VELVEETA Cheesy  Mashed Potatoes {I used Bob Evans}
1 lb.  lean ground beef {aka venison for those married to a hunter}
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables {peas, carrots, corn, celery, okra, potato}
1 cup  beef gravy

make it

HEAT oven to 375°F.
PREPARE Potatoes as directed on package. Meanwhile, brown meat in large skillet; drain. I added rosemary,thyme, salt & pepper to my meat mixture {haha meat mixture, ok I'm immature}
ADD vegetables and gravy to meat; mix well. Spoon into 8-inch square baking dish; cover with prepared Potatoes.
BAKE 20 to 25 min. or until heated through and lightly browned.


  1. Sounds really yummy... I'll have to give it a try.

  2. Just made shepards pie the other day. Yours looks yumm-dizzle!

  3. Oh, this looks sooo delicious! Definetely gonna be making this. I know my guys will love it!
    Thanks for sharing it...I"m hungry! lol :)

  4. YUM!!!! I love Shepherd's Pie! I mean, how can you not? Cheese, potatoes, gravy... nothing involving those 3 things can ever be bad! That's funny you mention venison, my dad is a hunter, so growing up "hamburger" more often than not was "venison burger" in our house! Your post made me crave some venison again!!
