Happy Monday my friends! St. Patrick’s Day is this weekend, do you have your menu all planned? Are you hosting a party or maybe just a family dinner like we do? Last week we shared St. Patrick’s Day Appetizer Ideas with you, and today it’s all about the Main Dishes.
These Mini Shepherd’s Pies are not only a yummy St. Patrick’s Day Dinner idea, but could be fixed anytime. They can also be frozen for a future quick meal, so you might want to make a double batch. And their size is perfect for little hands!
Typically you think of Corned Beef and Cabbage, but we like to change things up a bit around here, and think outside the box a little. I shared the Mini Shepherd’s Pie last week with the St. Patrick’s Day Appetizers, but they are definitely hardy enough for a main dish.
The original recipe is from Taste of Home, and calls for Mashed Potato Flakes, but we used real potatoes and just boiled them like we normally do for mashed potatoes. We also added a sprinkle of shredded cheese to the top for added flavor and color.
