A delicious mini shepherd’s pie recipe that uses biscuits, filled with an out-of-this-world delicious filling and topped with creamy mashed potatoes! Kid-friendly!
In our home we love and I really mean love comfort food, especially when it’s chilly outside. There is nothing better than taking a bite out of a delicious meal and having it warm you up inside. That’s exactly what these mini shepherd’s pie do!
I will have to admit, they did not last long at all – a day and a half. I think we ate some for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
We love making these when we have extra mashed potatoes leftover so it makes this recipe really easy. If you do not want to make a batch of mashed potatoes, you can always purchase the store-bought kind. I am all about easy.
Same thing with the biscuits, you can always make the biscuits homemade, I just used store-bought ones. The jumbo, fluffy buttermilk ones – so good!
This weekend we are throwing a surprise birthday party for one of my brothers and I think I need to make a batch of these. He loves shepherd’s pie, so I think he would love these. Just have to try to keep my hubby away from them.
I just thought, these would be a delicious afternoon snack option as well, they are pretty big – cut one in half and split it between two people! That would be so good. Mmm.
- 10 large biscuits, I used store-bought buttermilk ones
- ½ pound ground beef
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- 1 and ½ tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 cup beef stock
- 2 cups frozen vegetables; mix of carrots, corn, etc.
- 1 and ½ cups mashed potatoes
- Prepare your biscuits by flattening them between your hands. In a muffin tin, place the flattened biscuits in a muffin cavity, making sure to push the biscuit dough down and shaping around the sides. It should be perfectly formed to the muffin cavity. Do the same with the rest of the biscuits. Set aside.
- In a medium-sized skillet, add in the ground beef, minced garlic, salt and pepper. Cook until the beef in cooked all the way through, then add in the frozen vegetables.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and beef stock, making sure there are no clumps. Whisk into the ground beef mixture and allow it to simmer on medium-to-low heat for at least 10 minutes. The mixture should thicken. Preheat oven to 350 degree.
- Pour the ground beef mixture on top of the biscuits (1 tablespoon for each muffin cavity), then top with mashed potatoes. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the biscuits are browned.
