Tiffany’s Shepards’ Pie 1/12/09

Ingredients:

2 -3 lbs Hamburger Meat (lean) Or Ground Turkey
1 med Onion
2 stalks Celery
1/2 Green Pepper (1 whole pepper if small)
6-10 Green Olives pitted chopped
5 cups Mashed Potatoes
1 can 12 oz Tomato Paste
12 oz Cheddar/ or American Cheese
1 tsp Garlic
1 tsp Onion Powder
1-1/2 tsp Oregano
Salt and Pepper to
1/4 cup water


Directions:

Cut up your celery and onion in bite size pieces, saute in a little oil, until onion is translucent. Remove vegetables, add hamburger and cook until done. (If you are using Ground Turkey add directly to the pan of celery and onion and pepper, cook until done, no need to drain).
Drain grease and return hamburger to pan with the celery and onion and green olives. Add all your spices and 1/4 cup water. Let simmer 10 minutes. Add your tomato paste mixing well.
Instant potato’s work with this recipe since it is a quick meal for an entire family, but I use homemade . Make your potato’s according to the directions, approximate 5 cups. (For added flavor to your potatoes, add some onion powder, salt and pepper, or what ever spices you like. (A TBL of mayonnaise will make them rich in flavor and very few know why your potato’s are so great!)
In a casserole dish place the meat mixture on the bottom, cover with potatoes and top with the cheese.
Bake on 350 degree’s for 20 minutes.

This recipe also freezes great!

I have also been known to take left over mashed potatoes from the night before and just throw them ontop of a meat loaf and call it Shepard’s Pie. lol.

Shrimp Dip 1/10/09

This recipe is always a hit when I have company or go to a party. Everytime someone invites me to there house they say “as long as you bring the Shrimp Dip” or if I invite people over they say “only if your going to have shrimp dip.” They love it and can’t get enough of it. I enjoy it best on club crackers or pretzels.

1 lg Philadelphia Cream Cheese package

2 tablespoons Katsup

1/2 cup Mayo

2 tablespoons Dry Minced Onions  (must be dry do not sub for chopped onion)

1 can sm shrimp pieces, drained

Dump altogether and stir. Cover and let sit in the fridge for at least 4 hours, so that the flavors can blend and the onions can rehydrate, but 12 hours is best.  Serve and enjoy.
