Shepherd’s pie is a dish that can use some left-over items. If you fried a bunch of hamburger and have some leftover, if you’ve got a bowl of mashed potatoes left, or even if you have some vegetables leftover, you can combine them to make this dish.
Saute some onions and garlic in butter, then add your fried hamburger (or fry your hamburger in with the onions and garlic); then add vegetables, tomato soup and cheese. Mix all together with a dab of Worcestershire sauce and put into a dish. Put the potatoes on top, and heat in the oven.
You can mix this up a day or two ahead and then pull it out when you’re ready. Serve this with some homemade applesauce, and you’ve got a meal. You can, of course, always add some fresh rolls or bread.
