FROM MY KITCHEN | Mother-in-laws Shepherd Pie

Before my mother-in-law passed away in 2007; she would make her version of Shepherds Pie whenever we had the chance to visit.  What so ironic is none of my kids or DH liked it!! But they would eat it or they would starve.......  :o)
Anyways, she gave me the recipe and a few months after she passed I made it, the family loved it. Now they want me to make it once a week.......NOT!!  Anyways, the recipe isn't that different from hers I just add more spices and my secret mashed potato recipe!!!

This is made in a 9 x 13 pan and will feed an Army, ok, my family with no leftovers!!

*3 lbs of lean ground beef
*1 - 26oz can of condensed tomato soup
*2 - 28oz cans or 6 - 14.5oz cans of french style green beans (this is the one ingredient that is different from
MIL she either used corn and/or cut green beans; my family isn't keen on either)
*10 medium size potatoes, peeled, boiled and mashed (MIL used instant potatoes, I use my
own secret recipe for the mashed potatoes)
*seasoning for ground beef: salt, pepper, dry minced onion, garlic powder
*couple tablespoons of butter 

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees

*Season ground beef , ( Sorry I don't measure this), brown and 
drain any remaining fat.
Pour into baking dish

Add the tomato soup next and combine with ground beef, spread evenly in baking dish

Now, if you are using the 14.5 oz cans of green beans, drain the liquid from 5 of the cans; if you are using the larger cans save half of the liquid from one can, now pour green beans and the saved liquid over mixture and spread evenly.

Next make your mashed potatoes, layer on top of green beans, add a few dollops of butter to top, cover with tin foil, place in 350 degree oven for 30 to 45 min. *hint when it boils over in the oven.....it is ready to serve.

If you try it, hope you enjoy!
