Shepherd’s Pie With Hamburger
When I saw the title to the recipe I assumed it would be a classic recipe for a green bean casserole normally served over the holidays.
Even though this recipe uses hamburger versus lamb, I renamed the recipe to Shepherd’s Pie with Hamburger so that is more descriptive of what the recipe actually is.
Since my kids don’t eat beef, I created an Easy Chicken Shepherd’s Pie that they really enjoy.
I had some leftover creamy mashed potatoes I didn’t want to throw away and knew that they would be perfect for this casserole recipe. (Do you like making casseroles? Check out all of our published Casserole Recipes here.)

NOTE: Depending on the casserole dish you use, there is a likelihood that the casserole will boil over and make a huge mess of your oven so place it on a baking sheet for easier cleanup.
From Wikipedia describing a Shepherd’s Pie:
Shepherd’s pie or cottage pie is a meat pie with a crust or topping of mashed potato.
The recipe has many variations, but the defining ingredients are minced red meat (commonly, “cottage pie” refers to beef and “shepherd’s pie” to lamb), cooked in a gravy or sauce with onions and sometimes other vegetables, such as peas, celery or carrots, and topped with a layer of mashed potato before it is baked.
The pie is sometimes also topped with grated cheese to create a layer of melted cheese on top.
