2 C Cooked, Cubed beef (I brown up ground beef most times)
2 C frozen mixed veggies, thawed and drained
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 C half and half (I use milk)
4 TBSP butter, melted
1/2 C parsley (dried)
2 C mashed potatoes
Preheat oven to 400. Lightly spray or grease a pie plate. Put beef, seasoned lightly with salt & pepper in. Mix veggies with 1/4 tsp thyme and add to pie plate. Mix together half and half, a little salt, and pepper with egg. Carefully add potatoes. Mix well. Add 1/2 of parsley and mix. Spread over top of pie plate. (you can cover the entire top, or make the "ring" found in traditional variations) Drizzle with melted butter. Bake for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are golden and slightly crispy. Serve hot, with hot beef gravy.
As you can see, this is a "leftover" pie. However...I make it with "fresh" ingredients, using instant potatoes, instant gravy, and just brown up the beef, and drain it. One of these nights, I'll make it with actual leftovers...I guess...
Hope you enjoy this, and let me know if you find any yummy variations...you know, with chicken and mashed sweet potatoes or something...
