Shepherd’s Pie

I’m a little behind on blog posts, so this is from a couple months back, but well worth the wait! A few months ago I had the perfect storm of mass cooking occur. I started by browning some hamburger, about half of which I stored to make beef stroganoff later.

I then added some cabbage, carrots, and onions I had chopped up while making three bean salad and raw veggies for snacks, all while keeping the kitchen clean. Cook the veggies to your desired cooked-ness. I like mine somewhat caramelized.

I used:  about 1/2 pound beef (browned and drained), 1/3 head of cabbage (chopped), 1 carrot (chopped), 1/2 onion (diced), garlic salt and pepper to taste.

I then made a triple batch of this biscuit dough, one batch of which I smashed out for the topping on my shepherd’s pie.

Bake the whole thing according to the biscuit recipe, and you can even have the biscuits in the oven at the same time!

This type of strategy makes it so much easier to eat homemade food every day. I have a newborn at home, so BELIEVE me, I understand that it’s hard to find time to cook every meal. Get around it by prepping a bunch of stuff at once, or even cooking multiple meals at once.
