Easy BBQ Shepard’s Pie

BBQ Shepard’s Pie is a favorite meal for my kids and I. Hubby, not so much. So this is something special just for my kids and I, and they alone can clean the casserole dish full. It’s not a horribly hard dish to make, just a little bit of time. This tends to be more of a supper than a lunch.

How to make BBQ Shepard’s Pie

As I said, this is super simple to make, maybe even easier to make than some other Shepard’s Pie recipes that are out there.

Boil potatoes, whether with skins on or off, that is up to you.

Brown your ground beef with some thinly diced onion.

Once your grown beef is cooked, drain off any fat. Return to the frying pan, return to low heat and add about a cup of BBQ sauce. Allow it to simmer.

Once potatoes are cooked through, drain off the water and mash! I use a bit of butter in my mashed potatoes to add some flavor and to make for easier mashing.

Add your ground beef into a casserole dish, leveling it out and covering the bottom, top with mashed potatoes making sure to cover all the ground beef bottom.

We like to sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese, a little cheddar cheese and some bacon bites over the top… but that’s just us. You don’t have too, but it definitely doesn’t hurt.

Broil until the cheese melt and the potato goes golden. I use low to avoid burning.

We make our own BBQ sauce for the most part, though when we do buy them we tend to look for more smokey flavored sauces. You can find one recipe we use here, with our pulled BBQ chicken sandwiches.
