COOK TIME

Our Easy Cheesy Cottage Pie requires just a few ingredients and you can have it on the table in less than 30 minutes. Seriously! It doesn't get much better than a hearty dinner you can make in a snap.

What You'll Need:
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) canned or bottled brown gravy
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large skillet, melt butter.  Add onion and cook until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Stir in beef, salt, and pepper and cook 5 to 8 minutes, or until beef is no longer pink. Stir in gravy and heat until bubbling. Spoon mixture into prepared casserole dish. 
     
  3. In a small bowl, combine potatoes and cheese; spread over top of casserole.
     
  4. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until potatoes are lightly browned and casserole is warmed through.

Not great, too soupy, must cook meat and drain completely before adding to onion mix, I added vegetables but still found it bland and the consistency off putting.

We tried / liked it very much. I added a can of mixed vegetables, under the mash potatoes. One dish, very good.

It was a very good. I added a can of mixed vegetables, under the mashed potatoes. This way, we had a complete meal in one dish.

We were amazed that something this easy could be this good. Had it Monday and my son is asking for it again! This will be one of my "go to" recipes when I am too busy to cook and I am going to make a couple and put them in the freezer. Thanks Mr. Food Kitchen!

Love it...easy to put together & the family wants to have it for dinner every week!

What could be easier? Sounds good.

Very good and easy

but I will try it,however I will use my own gravy. looks so good.

We like all the food

We like it

You can substitute ground turkey and turkey gravy or even left over turkey (after the holidays). I throw in a few sliced mushrooms as well.

If canned or bottled gravy has too much sodium just make your own gravy

I do not like the canned gravey , too much sodium. I will not try.

I made this and it was great! I made it the second time and added hidden valley ranch dressing mix packet to the mashed potatoes, and the cheddar cheese. It came out oooh sooo gooood!

I add a can of corn to the gr.meat and shred cheese on top.
