As promised, here’s that recipe for Pizza Cottage (Shepherd’s) Pie and, my gosh, it’s a good one. I mean, hello, both pizza and cottage pie in one dish? It’s basically comfort food heaven.
And this recipe is super easy to make since it only requires a handful ingredients and comes together in no time at all. And, of course, it’s so darn tasty. Mal raved and raved (and raved) about this dish, which is especially important because he’ll totally tell me if my cooking stinks! Haha! He’s not one to sugarcoat and that’s why I love him so much. Anyway, we’re really loving this Pizza Cottage Pie, and I hope you decide to try it soon!
- 28 ounces mashed potatoes (I used a bag of the frozen ones from Trader Joe’s)
- 1 pound extra lean ground beef
- 2 tbsp pizza seasoning
- 1.5 cups finely chopped peppers and onions + 1/4 cup for sprinkling on top
- 1/2 cup shredded low-fat mozzarella
Directions: Preheat oven 350 degrees F. Prepare mashed potatoes. Cook ground beef in a large skillet on the stove top. Add pizza seasoning as well as the peppers and onions. (I used frozen peppers and onions and then just threw them in my food processor for a hot second. I used the leftovers in a Hash Brown Breakfast Bake.)
When the ground beef is finished cooking, pour it into a rectangular baking dish and then spread the mashed potatoes on top. Sprinkle the top with cheese and the extra peppers and onions. Bake for 25 minutes and then turn up the oven to broil for 3-5 minutes until the top is lightly browned. Remove from the oven and serve!
