I started this blog so I could pass along family recipes to my children. Most of these recipes are Eaton recipes.

GHOSTLY shepherds pie

A simple quick way to get the kids excited for fall and all its festivities.
Shepherds pie is one of my oldest daughter's favorite dinners. How lucky we are that it is simple and easy to make. Tonights dinner was compliments of the man of house.

lb ground beef
handful of dry minced onion
1 bag (12 oz) frozen mixed vegetables (we were out so we used, corn,peas and beans)
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Mashed potatoes.
Shredded cheddar cheese

1. Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 12-inch skillet with cooking spray. Add beef and onion; cook over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain.

2. Add frozen vegetables, Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender.

3. Prepare your mashed potatoes

4. Start by layering your dinner, into a 9x13 pan. (the grave yard)

5. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes are set and mixture is thoroughly heated.

6. Take a portion of the mashed potatoes and put it into a pastry bag. Be sure to have a large tip. Or use a freezer bag and cut a hole in the corner and pipe out mashed potato ghosts.
Garnish with peas for eyes or I used chocolate chips! HEY, chocolate isn't bad on mashed potatoes!
