Individual Shepherd’s Pies
I have a slight obsession with foods that can be made into mini versions. You know, the foods that would normally be a casserole or done in the crock pot and then you make them personal size. That’s why I love this Individual Shepherd’s Pies recipe! They are great for a crowd of company or just a regular night at home. We recently shared our Super Simple Egg Muffins recipe, which also falls into this category. Instead of making one big dish, we made the mini version. Both recipes are delicious, so give them a try!
- 1 can Biscuits (10-12 ct)
- 1 lb Ground Beef
- ½ Onion, minced
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 tbsp Black Pepper
- 1 tbsp Minced Garlic
- 2 tbsp Flour
- ¾ cup Beef Stock
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 cup frozen Peas and Carrots
- 1 tsp Dried Parsley Flakes
- 1½ cups Mashed Potatoes
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and spray a muffin pan with non-stick spray.
- Flatten and mold biscuits into each muffin cup, bringing the biscuit up the sides.
- Bake for 6-8 minutes, until light golden. If biscuits have risen too much to hold meat, press downsides and bottom while still warm.
- While the biscuits are baking, brown the ground beef in a large skillet and drain.
- Stir in the onions, salt, pepper and garlic and allow to cook together for a couple of minutes.
- Add the flour to the mixture and stir until blended to a paste.
- Add beef stock, Worcestershire and vegetables. Mix well
- Heat the mashed potatoes in a microwave for 5 to 6 minutes stirring halfway through.
- Spoon about 2-3 tablespoons of meat mixture into each biscuit shell.
- Then top with equal amount mashed potatoes.
- Sprinkle the top with dried parsley flakes. Place in oven and bake for 12-15 minutes.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before removing individual pies.
I hope you love these Individual Shepherd’s Pies as much as my family did. If you have trouble with the biscuits puffing up to much the first time you bake them, try placing another muffin tin on top of the biscuits to hole the mold together. Don’t press it down to hard, just lay it on top gently. Want more recipes like this? Check out this cookbook! It has 200 recipes and includes sweet, main meal and appetizer ideas.
