This is a delicious easy recipe. It combines the delicious juicy taste of a cheeseburger with cheesy creamy mashed potatoes! Who could ask for more than that!
See what I mean! Doesn’t that look scrumptious? I baked mine in the skillet but if you wanted a fancier presentation you could bake it off in a pretty casserole dish!
However it really doesn’t matter how you present it because it tastes so darn delicious!
Yummy!! Yummy for your tummy!Print
Cheeseburger Shepherds Pie
- 1 1/2 lbs russet potatoes peeled and cut up
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2–4 tablespoons low sodium chicken broth
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 1/2 lbs of ground beef
- 1 small onion chopped
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- 1 red pepper chopped
- 2 small dill pickles chopped
- 1 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon basil
- Fresh ground pepper
- 8–10 slices white American cheese
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 3 tablespoons mustard
- 2 green onions
- 3 slices crispy cooked bacon
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees
- In a large saucepan cook potatoes in water until tender about 15-20 minutes. Drain water thoroughly and mash with electric mixer. Add sour cream and milk and continue mixing. Add chicken broth 1 tablespoon at a time until potato mixture is light and fluffy. Stir in 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese, cover and set aside.
- Meanwhile in a large ovenproof skillet brown the ground beef. When the ground beef is just a couple minutes short of being done add the onion, garlic and red pepper. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and drain any fat. Stir in the pickles, oregano, basil and a few twists of your pepper mill. Return skillet to low heat and add the white American cheese, chicken broth and mustard. Cook, stirring gently until the cheese has melted.
- Remove from heat. Using a large spoon or ice cream scoop the potatoes in mounds over the beef mixture. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese and cook an additional 10 minutes turning the broiler on the last minute of cooking just to brown the potatoes a tad.
- Remove from oven and add green onions and bacon.
