Perogie Shepherd’s Pie

Ground beef and vegetables topped with perogies and cheese. It’s an easy, fast, and fun twist on the classic shepherd’s pie.

1 lb extra lean ground beef
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 can condensed mushroom soup
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp ground pepper
2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
1/2 package of perogies
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Cook ground beef, onions and garlic on medium heat in a large non-stick skillet until meat has browned. Add soup, spices and vegetables. Heat for another 5 minutes until vegetables have thawed. Pour into a 3-quart casserole dish and arrange frozen perogies on top. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350F for 35-40 minutes until perogies have cooked and cheese has browned. Faster version: microwave covered on high for 10 minutes, then place under a broiler for 3-5 minutes to brown the cheese.

I felt like making shepherd’s pie but realized I didn’t have any potatoes. The only thing that was remotely potato-like that I had was a bag of frozen perogies. So I thought why not? Let’s just throw perogies on top. When Tony came into the kitchen for dinner he saw it and said ‘hey, you dropped perogies on this shepherd’s pie.’ He then proceeded to eat two helpings, so I guess he approved. Cole really doesn’t like perogies. I know he doesn’t like most things at one time or another, but perogies are one thing he consistently will not touch. I don’t really understand that because I happen to love perogies, but anyway, he did eat the meat and veggies. He even ate the cheese on top, but just left the perogies behind. Bennett, as usual, ate it all. I enjoyed this too, seeing as I like perogies. I’ll probably play around with this recipe a bit more because although it was good it did seem to be lacking something. I’d like to try adding tomato paste and maybe beef broth to it. All in all I think it’s a great short-cut version of shepherd’s pie. When you use the microwave method it doesn’t take long to make at all.
