REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Very easy and tasty. I actually doubled this and baked it in a larger baking dish to feed some hungry teenagers. They devoured it. To make the sheperds pie in a larger pan though I put the ground beef mixture in first and baked it for about 20 minutes, stirring once or twice. Then I put the mashed potatoes on top and baked it another 20-30 minutes. Turned out great.

I thought this recipe was pretty good except that 1 tablespoon of garlic salt was way way way too much! When I looked at the recipe, my instincts told me to only use a teaspoon but i didnt listen. It was still edible but extremely salty. It would have been delicious if not for all the salt.

Do you cook the soup first and then add it to the ground beef? Or do you just add the soup by itself to the ground beef?

That's one of the conveniences of using canned cream of something soup, you don't need to cook it first, just add it in.

I used ground turkey 93%lean and lowfat mushroom soup to reduce calories, and still tastes great.

Easy to follow directions, simple preparation. Quick enough to make after work on a weeknight.
For lower caloric/fat content, I recommend ground turkey.
