American Shepherd's Pie
This is an `Americanized` version of that old standard, Shepherd`s Pie. My family loves it! You can prepare your mashed potatoes as you normally would -- adding butter, milk, sourcream, whatever!
Serves: 6 2quart dishes
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes


1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed vegetable soup
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
3 cups mashed cooked potatoes
1 cup shredded Colby cheese, longhorn

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and lightly grease a 2 quart baking dish.
2 In a large skillet over medium-high heat, stir and cook
ground beef, onion and celery until juices run clear. Drain. Pour mixture into baking dish with vegetable soup and thyme; stir well. Spread mashed potatoes on top.

bake 5 minutes more, or until cheese has melted.
