A-!!! Whip up some ghoulishly good fun with instant mashed 'ghost' potatoes that top a deliciously rich ground beef and vegetable casserole. My own take on the Pilsbury recipe which uses powdered potatoes. *cringes*

Recipe Ingredients for Spooky Shepherd's Pie

1 lb lean ground beef
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
12 oz Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers frozen mixed vegetables
28 oz Progresso diced tomatoes with Italian herbs undrained
12 oz jar home style beef gravy
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup fat free milk
2 cups boiled potatoes

Recipe Directions for Spooky Shepherd's Pie

  1. Heat oven to 375F. Spray large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add ground beef and onion; cook until beef is thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain.

  2. Set aside 12 peas for garnish. Add remaining frozen vegetables, tomatoes and gravy; mix well. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender, stirring occasionally.

  3. Meanwhile, in medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Cook potatoes until done but still firm.

  4. To potatoes, add butter, garlic powder, milk and cheese. Mix Well.

  5. Spoon ground beef mixture into ungreased 8-inch square (2-quart) or oval (2 1/2-quart) glass baking dish. With large spoon, make 6 mounds of potato mixture on top of beef mixture to resemble ghosts. Place 2 reserved peas on each mound to resemble eyes.

  6. Bake at 375F. for 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes are set and mixture is thoroughly heated.
