There are lots of recipes online for various potato casseroles. The most famous of the potato casseroles may be a Shepherd’s Pie. It’s a great way to use those leftover potatoes.
Here’s how to make a Shepherd’s Pie:
- Sauté ground meat and onions in a heavy, oven-proof skillet. Season to taste.
- Add a can of stewed tomatoes, leftover gravy, or make a new gravy in the pan.
- Add some veggies. Green beans or corn are typical.
- Cover with mashed potatoes. Top with grated cheese and a sprinkle of paprika.
Bake at 350 degrees until heated through and the cheese is melted. Times will vary with the pan and size of casserole.
Add a salad and maybe a side dish and you have a meal. I especially like this made with leftover gravy but it’s okay with tomatoes too.
This makes a great after holiday or a Monday after-Sunday-dinner meal!
