Recipe of the Week: Bootleg Shepard's Pie For Dinner

Shepard's Pie

Since some places are still experiencing the harsh winter weather I thought it would be a perfect time to share a savory dinner recipe to keep you comforted and satisfied. Bootleg Shapards Pie! Now you may ask yourself WTF is a Bootleg Shepards Pie? Chances are you’ve probably had some version of it before.

Traditionally, Shepherds Pie is a type of casserole dish that’s most notably associated with comfort food in England. We have many American versions of it, but in my version, it won't take nearly as long to cook and you can have that shit on the table for dinner before your evening shows start to come on. 

Check out the step-by-step recipe and give it a shot.



Mom's Sunday Dinner


1 lb of Ground Beef

1 large Red Onion

2 Russet Potatoes

1 Can of Peas

4 large Carrots

2 cups of Shredded Cheese

4 tablespoons of Olive Oil

1 tablespoon of salt

1 tablespoon of pepper

1 tablespoon of granulated garlic

1 tablespoon of cayenne pepper

1/2 cup of Green Onion

1/4 cup of Parsley


  1. Start by dicing your carrots & potatoes, they will take the longest to cook.

  2. After that, you'll want to dice your onion, green onion stems, and parsley.

  3. In a large saute skillet, add one teaspoon of vegetable oil and heat on medium until hot.

  4. Once the oil is hot add the carrots & potatoes and saute stirring occasionally until they are evenly browned all over.

  5. Next, add the ground beef & onion spreading evenly throughout the pan.

  6. Season with salt and pepper and continue to cook until the meat starts to brown. About 5-7 minutes.

  7. Once browned, pour in your broth and bring to a boil. Once boiling reduce the heat to a low simmer, cover and let cook for simmer for another 8-10 minutes.

  8. Pop open the lid and sprinkle the cheese over the entire dish. Cover again and let it sit away from the heat for 1 minute.

  9. When you notice the cheese is creamy and melted it's time to serve. Sprinkle the green onion and parsley on top and plate that shit!
