Sweet Potato Shepherd’s Pie

sweet potato shepherd's pieShepherd’s pie is a family favorite here. It’s full of vegetables and doesn’t take long for me to put together. It also makes fantastic leftovers – so I don’t have to worry about lunch the next day.

2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 pound ground beef
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup corn
1 cup peas
14 oz tomato sauce
1/2 white onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons milk
salt and pepper, to tastespsheperdpie2

Preheat the oven to 350F. Peel and cube the sweet potatoes and place in a pot of water over high heat with a pinch of salt. Allow to cook 10-15, until softened. Drain the water, add the milk and cinnamon and mash until smooth.

In a large skillet add the ground beef, onion, and garlic. Cook until the beef is no longer pink. Add in the tomato sauce and vegetables and allow the vegetables to cook for 5 minutes.

Place the beef and vegetable mixture in a 9″ pan, add a bit of salt and pepper to the top. Scoop and spread the sweet potatoes over the top, then place in the oven for 35 minutes. Feeds 4-6. Enjoy!

Can easily be made vegetarian by subbing in more veggies for the meat.
