updated shepard's pie+some exciting news!!!

This is one of those recipes that I don't make that often, then when I do I wonder why because it is so yummy and easy to make...plus I like all-in-one type dinners:) I am not sure where I got this recipe (Mom, from you??) but I know I got it while I was doing weight watchers. Sorry if the picture does not look appetizing...still working on my food stylist skills;)

Updated Shepard's Pie

1 lb ground beef (I used ground turkey here because that is what was on hand!)
1 1/4 lbs red potatoes
4 cups frozen mixed veggies, thawed
3 cloves of garlic
3/4 cup sour cream (I didn't have enough, so I used some greek yogurt)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tbsp all purpose flour
3/4 cup reduced sodium beef broth
2 tbsp ketchup
your family's favorite seasoning (we used Emeril's Essence for this)

1. Cover potatoes and garlic with water in saucepan, bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer 20 minutes, or until very tender. Drain. Return to saucepan with sour cream and 1/4 cup cheese. Mash to desired consistency.
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season and brown meat in large nonstick skillet. Stir in flour, cook for 1 minute. Add vegetables, broth, and ketchup, continue cooking for 5 minutes. Check here if you need to add more seasoning or not.
3. Spoon meat mixture into 8x8 baking dish. Cover with mashed potatoes, bake 18 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup of cheese and bake an additional 2 minutes or until cheese is melted.
4. Enjoy this yummy goodness:)
