These individual shepherd's pies freeze really well. Heated up later, they are the perfect portions for a comfort-food dinner.

Ingredients

Uncooked Yukon gold potato(es)

1¼ pound(s), cut into 1-inch pieces

Table salt

1 tsp(s), divided

Uncooked scallion(s)

1 medium, finely chopped

Fat free skim milk

cup(s)

Black pepper

1 pinch

Olive oil cooking spray

1 spray(s)

Uncooked 93% lean ground beef

¾ pound(s)

Uncooked onion(s)

1 small, finely chopped

Uncooked carrot(s)

2 medium, finely chopped

Garlic clove(s)

1 clove(s), medium, minced

Garlic herb seasoning

2½ tsp(s)

No salt added canned tomato sauce

1 cup(s)

Frozen cut green beans

1¼ cup(s), thawed

Low-fat shredded cheddar cheese

6 tbsp(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Place six 6-oz ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet; set aside.
  2. Place potatoes in a saucepan; add enough water to cover them and stir in 1/4 tsp salt. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, until tender, about 12 to 15 minutes. Drain potatoes and return to saucepan; stir in scallions, milk, 1/4 tsp salt and pepper. Mash with a potato masher until somewhat smooth; set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, coat a nonstick skillet with cooking spray; set over medium-high heat. Add beef, onion, carrot, garlic, garlic seasoning and remaining 1/2 tsp salt; sauté, breaking up beef, until onions are translucent and carrots are just tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce; remove from heat.
  4. Spoon about 1/2 cup beef mixture into each ramekin. Top each with a layer of green beans and a layer of mashed potatoes; sprinkle each with a Tbsp cheese. Bake until heated through, about 20 minutes.
  5. Serving size: 1 shepherd’s pie

Notes

If frozen, thaw at room temperature for 1 hour and then bake until heated through, about 35 to 40 minutes.
