With all the last minute baking and food preparation for big Christmas dinners, it is nice to make a meal in the crockpot - slow cooker. This is also a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes.

Crockpot Shepherds Pie Recipe

1 pound ground turkey or beef (or other meat)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can cream of mushroom soup or other cream based soup such as chicken, cheese or potato
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables or vegetable of your choice
1 cup milk or water
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3 cups leftover mashed potatoes

This recipe will fit a 4-quart crockpot. You can easily double this recipe and use a larger crockpot.

In a skillet, brown the meat with the onion and garlic. Spray the inside of your crockpot with non-stick cooking spray or use a crockpot liner. Put the meat mixture in the crockpot and stir in the frozen vegetables, soup and milk or water. Add the cheddar cheese on top. Press the mashed potatoes down on top of the cheese and meat. Sprinkle with a bit of paprika.

Cover and cook on low for about 6 hours or on high for about 3 hours. If you want, you can remove the lid and cook on high for 30 minutes to release the condensation and allow the potatoes to brown a little on top. This is not necessary.

Ditto and Little One Pix Ditto and Little One Dec 2014

Hello Nancy and all Landers,
Well, one Christmas party done and two more to go lol. This is for Dianne in E. Tennessee - I still use the old fashioned grinder that you have to attach to your counter! I just think it grinds meat better than my food processor - sometimes the old gadgets still do the job better. Glad to see another Dianne that is spelled with two n's.

I am on vacation from the school for two weeks for Christmas shutdown. Tomorrow I plan on baking cookies all day. My family gathers at my house at noon on Christmas Eve day. Our 5 year tradition is that we send all the men to KFC to buy us dinner lol. No cooking and no dishes(paper plates and plastic utensils) to wash. That way we can ALL enjoy the day.
