Bbq Shepherd's Pie

Over the holidays we made this for a get together we went to. David isn't a Shepherd's pie kind of guy so we added some bbq sauce, bacon, and cheddar cheese to the traditional dish for a fun twist.

This freezes well too. Just let it cool after preparing, cover and freeze. When ready to eat let it thaw, cover and bake 75 minutes. Then uncovered for 5 - 10 minutes longer until heated through.

Bbq Sheherd's Pie

  • 2 1/2 lbs. potatoes, peeled & cubed (about 5 medium)
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 - 8 strips bacon, cooked, crumbled & divided
  • 8 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded & divided
  • parsley, to garnish

Cooking Directions

  1. *Place potatoes in a stock pot and cover with water. Bring to boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10 - 15 minutes or until tender. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
