Southwestern Crusted Shepherds Pie

I found a recipe for Mesquite Crusted Shepherds Pie at the kraft website. The store I was shopping at did not carry the Fresh Take Smokey Mesquite BBQ Cheese and Breadcrumb mix, so I substituted Fresh Takes Southwestern Three Cheese Cheese and Breadcrumb mixture.
I also only prepared half the recipe and added mushrooms. It turned out yummy!
3/4 lb lean ground beef
1/4 cup chopped red onion
1/2 cup chopped mushroom
1 clove garlic, minced
3/4 cup frozen corn
4 oz tomato sauce
1/2  6 oz pkg of fresh take southwestern three cheese mixture, mixed together (1 cup), divided
2 cups mashed potatoes

Brown meat with onions, garlic and mushrooms, draining if necessary.
Remove from heat and preheat oven to 375 degrees, 350 for RV ovens. Stir in corn, tomato sauce and 1/2 cup of breadcrumb/cheese mixture.
Pour beef mixture into bottom of 7"x11" casserole dish. Top with mashed potatoes and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup breadcrumb/cheese mixture.
Heat in oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until heated through. Serve and enjoy!

  1. ❃ Sure sounds delish alright. You made a good ingredient sub with the 3 cheese breadcrumb mixture. ❃

    1. Thanks. I don't think you can ever go wrong with southwestern seasoning or three cheese.

  2. Looks delicious, Terry! I love looking at your recipes {and pinning!} Thank you for sharing at our All My Bloggy Friends Party !

    1. It was great! The breadcrumbs with the cheese really added to the taste and texture, much better than just plain cheese.

  3. Oh my gosh...looks delicious! This would be great to link-up to my Create It Thursday's live now!

  4. I'm not familiar with this product, but breadcrumbs and cheese have got to be good! I like the southwest twist to shepherds pie. Thanks for linking this week.

    1. They were better than I expected. Used the other half of the packet on my Mahi Fish Tacos.

  5. This sounds great, Terry! I don't think I've ever seen this at the store - will have to try to find it :)

    1. This is the first time I've tried it. Another blogger posted recipes using this said you will find it in the dairy section. My store has it above the fresh chicken. So it should be in one of those spots.
