Shepherd’s Pie

My version of an old recipe from England.  This "commoners" food may take a while to make, but even the kids will like it. 1 lb hamburger 1 small white onion, diced (optional) 1 tablespoon Worcestershire 1 teaspoon basil dash white pepper 1 cup frozen / canned (drained) peas (or corn) 1 cup beef broth 1 cup grated cheddar cheese 4-5 russet potatoes, mashed (with butter, milk & seasonings) dash of Paprika 3 Tablespoons flour 1/4 cup water Brown hamburger (and onions if using).  Drain if necessary (if 7% fat meat is used, you shouldn't need to drain).  Add Worcestershire sauce, basil, pepper, peas (or corn) and broth.  Simmer for about 30 minutes.  Add the flour to the water in a small container (with a lid) and shake well, then pour/mix into the hamburger to thicken the gravy. Spread into a 13x9x2 baking dish.  Top with the cheese.  Spread the mashed potatoes over the top and sprinkle on some paprika or more shredded cheese for color. If desired, instead of using the baking dish, use ramekins to make single serving portions.  This recipe makes six 1 1/2 cup servings.  Just layer the meat, cheese, and potatoes as mentioned above.  Place the ramekins on a large cookie sheet to catch spills. Bake at 350° F for about 30 minutes.
