Cast Iron Skillet Shepard’s Pie

Comfort food at its finest. Shepard’s Pie is quick and easy to make with minimal cleanup 😊. This hearty and filling meal will be sure to please your tastebuds (and your family or friends 🤤)!


  • 1 pound potatoes, peeled (optional) and quartered 
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 3/4 cup of corn
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheese of your choice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (optional)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cut potatoes into quarters and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes; drain.
  • Using a potato masher or mixer, slowly blend milk, garlic, and butter into potatoes until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 F.

  • In a cast iron skillet, brown ground beef and drain.
    • Tip: I like to tilt the skillet to one side, push the meat to the top side and use a few rolled up paper towels to absorb the fat. This method makes it easy to discard in the trash.
  • Add the corn to the ground beef and stir to mix evenly.
  • Layer the mashed potatoes on top of the ground beef to fully cover.
  • Top with grated cheese.
  • Bake until cheese is golden brown and bubbly, about 30 minutes.


Serve and enjoy!

Makes about 6 servings.
