Tot Topped Shepherd's Pie
Tater Tots make for a super easy topping on this cozy dish.
lean ground beef
large carrots, cut into ¼" slices
medium yellow onion, diced
ground black pepper
all purpose flour
frozen tater tots
Preheat oven to 400°F.
In a large skillet, over medium heat, brown ground beef. Drain any excess grease.
Add carrots to beef and cook 2-3 minutes.
Add onion and cook an additional 2-3 minutes.
Stir in garlic, thyme, salt and pepper.
Sprinkle flour over mixture and stir until evenly coated.
Add peas, beef stock, and tomato paste. Stir until paste is evenly distributed.
Transfer mixture into a greased 8x8 pan. Place tater tots on top of mixture in straight rows then bake for 25-30 minutes or until tots are golden. Serve warm.
Number of servings varies slightly based on who is eating. My family of three (two adults and one young child) managed to get two servings each. If feeding four adults, I would estimate four servings.
