"when the shepherd is in a hurry" pie

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1½ pounds Ground beef
1 small Onion; chopped fine
½ pack Lipton's onion soup mix or more to taste
1 To 1 1/2 cup water
1 To 2 tbsp flour
1 16 oz pkg frozen corn, green beans, carrots
Whichever you prefer
8 10 servings instant mashed potatoes
Made per box directions

First, brown your ground beef and onion over medium-high heat. Add the onion soup to taste and the water. You can add more and taste it as the mix tends to be salty. Cook this mixture about 5-10 minutes and add pepper if you like.

Push the ground beef to one side of the pan and sprinkle the flour in while stirring the broth briskly. Careful here! It will lump quite easily. The idea is to make a gravy and if you like, you can dissolve the flour in a little cold water before stirring in. Bring back to a boil and add more water if you like a thinner gravy.

Pour this meat mixture into a large casserole dish such as a 13x9 oblong baking pan. Add the frozen vegetables and top with the prepared mashed potatoes. Bake about 30-40 minutes, uncovered, in a 350 degree oven. Serves well with a simple salad and about 6 hungry people, possibly with some left for lunch the next day. Reheats well.
