Shepard's Pie

This is one of Steve's favorites. Classic meat and potatoes dish. You can jazz it up a bunch of different ways, using different types of meat and other spices, play with it and see what your favorite is. This is a new one we dreamed up.

1 lb ground beef
1/4 lb summer sausage cubed
1 onion chopped
2 carrots diced
1 c frozen peas
1 c extra sharp cheddar cheese
2 c mashed potatoes (I used instant, cause I'm a slacker)

Heat a bit of oil in a large skillet and add the carrots and onions, add beef and brown. When beef is fully cooked add sausage and peas. Place meat mixture in a 9x9 baking dish. Cover with mashed potatoes then top with cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until top turns golden.

*You can speed this one up by heating the meat mixture for 5 minutes on the stove after the peas and sausage are added. Then top with potatoes and cheese and broil until cheese is golden.
