Easy Meatloaf Mashed Potato Casserole
This is my quick and easy version of Sheppards pie - its basically an easy meatloaf recipe with creamy mashed potatoes on the top. The potatoes are nice and creamy with a crispy crust - classic comfort food!
- 1.5 - 2 lbs. ground beef
- 1 packet lipton onion soup mix (dry mix)
- 2 eggs
- 3-4 russett potatoes
- 1 cup frozen peas (optional) *defrost peas
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup cream (to your preference)
- salt and pepper to taste
Boil potatoes with just enough water to cover. Once cooked, skin potatoes and mash in a bowl. Add butter, cream, salt and pepper. You can adjust the amount of milk to achieve consistency to your preference. Just ensure that the potatoes aren't runny.
In bowl, mix ground beef, onion soup mix, peas (optional) and eggs. Mix well and flatten into a 8x6" or 8" x 8" pan. For best results, use a ceramic pan.
Layer mashed potatoes over meatloaf mixture and cook at 350 for 1 hour.
*Note - If you are using a metal pan, it may take up to 20 minutes longer to cook.
