Subj: French Canadian Shepherds Pie
From: Au Mondieu
This is an inexpensive three layered casserole that is really easy to make. My mother
used to make this on a cold winter day, and we kids used to really love it. Even as a
grown-up today, when I don't know what to cook for dinner, I use this recipe. You'll
1 large onion,
about 3 Tbs. margerine,
1 cup milk,
1 pd. grd. beef,
1 16-0z. can creamed corn,
1 8-0z. can corn niblets,
a little seasoned salt, pepper,
and a little paprika.
Chop 1 large onion, and cook in margerine until golden. Add 1 pd. grd. beef, a little
seasoning salt, some pepper, and brown. In the meantime, boil about 5 potatoes
quartered, until cooked. Drain, and mash with some milk and margerine, salt and
pepper, until smooth. In a casserole, start first layer with browned meat. For second
layer, add 1 - 16 0z. can creamed corn and 1- 8 0z. can of corn niblets. Top with mashed
potatoes, and sprinkle a little paprika on top of potatoes to add a little color. Bake in a
350 degree oven for about 45 mins. or until heated through ( or keep refrigerated until
later ). A delicious, inexpensive, casserole that will be a great hit, especially with kids.
Oh! very important--- Don't forget to serve with ketchup. Mmmmm good!.
