Easy Shepherd's Pie

What You Need

1 lb. ground beef
2 cups hot mashed potatoes
4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, cubed
1 cup KRAFT Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 cups frozen mixed vegetables, thawed
1 cup beef gravy
 BROWN meat in large skillet; drain. 

 MIX potatoes, cream cheese, 1/2 cup Cheddar and garlic until well blended. 

 COMBINE meat, vegetables and gravy; spoon into 9-inch square baking dish. 

 COVER with potato mixture and remaining Cheddar. Bake 20 min. or until heated through.

You can also not use the garlic and  use 3/4 cup KRAFT Original Barbecue Sauce mixed with 1/2 tsp. onion powder for the gravy.


  1. I am trying this tonight, my husband loves Shepherds Pie.

  2. Do you use instant mashed potatoes or the regular kind?

  3. We make shepherd's pie, but I never thought to put cream cheese, cheddar cheese or garlic in it. This would put a new twist on an old family recipe! Thanks!
