Inexpensive Cottage Pie

Submitted by: JAMIE_CHRISTINE

Introduction

A favorite from my childhood. My mom's recipe for cottage pie tweaked with low-fat substitutions (except for the butter which I'd rather keep all-natural than use margarine with all its artificial ingredients and preservatives). Great if you don't have a whole lot of cash to spend on a big meal for the whole family. A favorite from my childhood.

  • I missed the potato part. Are you using boxed potatoes? and are you adding the mushroom soup to the potatoes??? It sound good just confused. - 3/23/12

    Oops! Yes, I'm using boxed potatoes. And half the can of mushroom soup is mixed in with the beef, and half is mixed in with the potatoes. Thanks for that catch, I'll fix it!
