What the Beck???

Becky's homemade Shepherd's Pie

1 lb. (90/10) ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
yellow sweet corn
mashed potatoes
2 pkgs puffed pastry 

I began by browning the ground beef
in my beautiful Pioneer Woman skillet.

I added water to the browned beef.

Yes, add in the Taco Mix

I let it cook down.

I spread some flour on the countertop.

This is where I thought that I went terribly wrong.
I had a store bought Shepherd's Pie and 
it had a crust on top - so I thought I
would use puff pastry on my creation.

Salt the taco mixture.

I cut the puffed pastry into circles.
Puffed pastry is wonderful, but 
I was really worried about how it
would be when I froze it. I even told my
BFF Donna that I had made a mistake.
I was wrong - it actually was okay, but
just having the potatoes on top is less
calories so I will go that route next time.

I purchased frozen corn and thawed it  
in a very large strainer.

I added pepper...

and salt to the corn.

Now, on to the assembly line.
I began with the taco seasoned meat.

I spooned the corn atop the meat.

I cheated and made boxed potatoes,
because I was in a hurry.

This is where some store bought ones stopped.
There are some that have a crust, which I 
thought I wanted.

I did the little slits to release steam.

They look beautiful after they were cooked.
I ate one of them and I loved the crust.

I love my Shepherd's Pie,
but next time it will be crustless.
