Low Carb Recipes: Shepherd's Pie
I don't think I've ever had the normal version of Shepherd's Pie. In fact, I'm not even sure exactly what it is. I know there's ground meat and potatoes, but that's the extent of my knowledge. So, you know, if this recipe isn't anything like actual Shepherd's Pie, please do not sue me!
1 to 1.5 lbs ground turkey or other ground meat Garlic powder to taste (or minced garlic) Onion power to taste (or diced onion) Red pepper flakes to taste 1 small diced onion 2 pkgs frozen cauliflower 1 8oz pkg cream cheese 1.5 cups shredded cheddar Bacon crumbles (optional)
Instructions: 1.Cook the ground meat adding the garlic, onion and red pepper flakes.
2.Cook and mash the cauliflower. I use my handheld blender too. Do this while it's still hot.
3.To the cauliflower, add the cream cheese (which will melt because the cauliflower is still hot), 1 cup cheddar, bacon, and diced onion. Mix.
4. Spread half the cauliflower mixture in the bottom of a 9x13 pan (or whatever size you're working with).
5.Top with all the ground meat.
6.Cover the meat with the remaining cauliflower mixture.
7.Top with remaining 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese.
8.Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes until the cheese is melted and the casserole is heated through.
