Mini Shepherd Pies

Just perfect individually or by the fistful–so, if you go about it daintily you could nibble on them for a few days. But if your house is full of big burly brutes then..well then–expect them to disappear a bit more quickly.

Either way–everyone’s happy.


1 pound ground beef
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1/3 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/4 cups water
3 tablespoons butter
1-1/4 cups mashed potato flakes
1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
1 batch Bisquick biscuit dough
1 cup shredded cheese


In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat til meat is browned. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute or until tender; drain. Stir in the ketchup, vinegar and salt; set aside.

Make the biscuit dough and shape into tablespoon sized blobs.

Press 1  dough ball onto the bottom and up the sides of each of 10 greased muffin cups.

Fill with beef mixture.

In a small saucepan, bring water and butter to a boil. Pour into a small bowl. Whisk in potato flakes until blended. Beat in cream cheese until smooth.

Spread potato mixture over beef. Sprinkle with cheese; press down lightly.

Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve to the dudes.
