Most of the men I’ve know have been meat n’ potato lovers (there was one vegetarian from Oregon but he didn’t last). Most of them have been good eaters. When you find a vocal one, my man’s a moaner, it’s the absolute best! The Man Pleaser Shepherd’s Pie is most definitely a moan-inducing meal and one that’s best served on chilly wet days.

2 lbs. Ground Beef (Lean)
1 Onion, thinly sliced
1 Can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
(Or Handful of Sliced Mushrooms and ½ cup Sour Cream)
2 Cloves of Garlic
1 tsp. Pepper
1 tsp. Salt
1 Can of Corn, drained
4 cups of Leftover Mashed Potatoes

In a pan, brown ground beef, and onions cook for a few minutes until they wilt, add garlic. Turn off heat. Add either the soup or the mushrooms & sour cream. Stir in seasonings. In an 8 x 8 baking dish (I use a glass one) spread meat mix. Add a layer of drained corn. Then spread the mashed potatoes. You can heat it through in the Micro for 10-15 minutes or the Oven at 350F for 30 minutes. Test to make certain the middle is hot. Serves 4.

Plate with something green either broccoli, peas, or brussel sprouts.

Luxed Up Version; If you’ve got any leftover pot roast in gravy, add that into the meat mix just before putting it into the casserole dish. Delish!
