Mini Shepherd’s Pies

Mom’s recipe for shepherd’s pie gets a makeover with Pillsbury’s seamless crescent dough.

Ingredients

2
whole large potatoes, plus cream for mashing*
1/2
lb lean ground beef
1
tsp steak seasoning
1
tablespoon Muir Glen™ organic tomato ketchup
1
teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/3
cup frozen vegetables (peas, carrots or mixed)
1
can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Lightly spray 12 standard muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray.
  • 2 Peel and quarter potatoes and boil in salted water until tender (about 15 minutes).
  • 3 While the potatoes cook, heat olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and steak seasoning and cook until browned, occasionally using a spoon to break up the meat.
  • 4 Add ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and frozen vegetables to skillet and cook 2-3 minutes until heated through. Taste for seasoning and add salt or pepper as necessary. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • 5 Unroll crescent dough on lightly floured work surface. Press dough into a 12x9-inch rectangle, and cut into 12 evenly sized squares. Place one square of dough in each muffin cup, gently pressing dough into bottom and up sides of cup.
  • 6 Drain and mash potatoes, adding cream as needed and seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 7 Fill each dough cup with 1-2 tablespoons of beef filling then top with a spoonful of mashed potato. Bake 15-20 minutes until dough is golden brown. Cool 5 minutes before serving.

Step By Step  

Mini Shepherd's Pies

As prepared by Inspired Taste,

Mom’s recipe for shepherd’s pie gets a little update with Pillsbury’s seamless crescent dough in this recipe for Mini Shepherd's Pies.


They’re mini, they’re easy to grab and they’re gonna go fast! These Mini Shepherd’s Pies are simple, tasty and are beggin’ to be added to your to-do list! Can we say St. Patty’s Day!?

We cut the dough into even squares, push ‘em into muffin cups, fill with beefy goodness and top with ultra creamy mashed potatoes. Easy!

Here’s the how-to:

Cook up some ground beef with a sprinkling of your fave steak seasoning. Choose lean beef for this; you don’t want any extra fat messing up your vibes.

Add Seasoning to Ground Beef

Add a touch of savory with Worcestershire sauce (read: thank goodness for spell-check on that one!).

Adding Worceshire Sauce to Ground Beef

And then a touch of sweet with ketchup.

Throw in some veggies. We use frozen for ease, but you could use any leftover veggies here, too.

Adding Frozen Veggies to Meat

Now for the dough: pop open a tube of seamless crescent dough, shape it into a large rectangle and cut 12 even-ish smaller rectangles. Then, push each rectangle into one of the muffin cups.

Alright, so the beef is done, the dough is ready, and all that’s left is the potatoes. Mash ‘em up with cream then season with salt and pepper (OR use Betty Crocker instant -- easy!), steal a spoonful and get to filling those cups.

Adding Mashed Potatoes to Top

Bake these cuties in a 375 degree F oven until the dough is golden brown. Take ‘em out of the oven, let them cool a couple minutes then devour!
