Quick and healthy Shepherd's Pie (Cottage Pie)
Looking for another quick and easy dinner idea to throw in the mix? This Shepherd's Pie is just that, and healthy too. All the convenience without the all the processed junk you don't want your family to eat.
This is one of those recipes that you can just throw together and heat up. Perfect for those busy weeknights. You can even prepare it ahead of time, putting it all together in the baking dish. Once you get home from work, just throw it in the oven to heat through. You may need to bake it a bit longer since it will be cold rather than coming from the cook top.

1 lb ground beef
1/2 onion (diced)
Frozen bag mixed vegetables

Preheat oven to 375. Spread meat mixture in a baking dish. Spoon and spread your mashed potatoes over the top of the mixture. Top with cheese. Place in oven for 20-30 minutes or until heated through and the cheese is bubbly.
Your whole meal is ready to go in this one dish. My girls loved it and wanted seconds. It's great for leftovers too, if you have any that is! Enjoy!
