Sweet Potato Shepherds Pie

This is the easiest recipe you will ever make! It's my go-to meal and a sure crowd pleaser. A much healthier version of the classic, but nobody complains when I make this dish. It's also a most requested meal when either of my brother's come to visit, which isn't that high of an honor because they'll eat almost anything, but it makes me feel special. I make this in large quantities because the entire family loves it, but also because it makes fantastic leftovers! Enjoy!

Sweet Potato Shepherds Pie
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 pound carrots, chopped into rounds
  • 1 sweet onion, diced
  • 1 bag frozen mixed veggies
  • 5-6 sweet potatoes (or more! yum!)

Peel and chop sweet potatoes & then boil until fork tender. Drain off water & mash.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

While potatoes are boiling, brown the ground beef in a dutch oven or large stainless steel pan that is oven safe. When the meat is almost done, add chopped onions and carrots and cook for a few minutes more. Salt & pepper to taste. Once onions are translucent and carrots are starting to soften, add the bag of mixed veggies and cook for two minutes longer.

Spoon mashed sweet potatoes over the top of meat and veggie mix and flatten down with a fork. Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Serve & enjoy!

I just found this random picture of me that my sister took a while back. This is what my life looks like on a daily basis.
