I love shepherd's pie and I never thought I could have it on Medifast, since the original recipe is loaded with carbs! I got this recipe from the little booklet of recipes that came with the Medifast brown gravy mix or fajita mix. I just used cauliflower and green beans while the original recipe used cauliflower, yellow squash and zucchini. I also added cheese. Turned out really good! I am glad I have an extra serving for tomorrow!
Shepherd's Pie with Medifast's Brown Gravy Mix
7.5 oz cooked 93% lean ground beef (1 1/2 Leans)
1/2 cup shredded reduced fat Mexican or Cheddar cheese (1/2 Lean)
1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp prepared Medifast brown gravy mix - 1 package mixed with 1 cup water - use only 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp and reserve the rest for later (4 1/2 Condiments)
1 1/2 cups cooked cauliflower, mashed (3 Greens)
1 1/2 cups canned french style green beans, no salt added, drained (3 Greens)
1/4 tsp garlic salt (1 Condiment)
1/8 tsp black pepper (1/4 Condiment)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cooked ground beef and prepared gravy in a medium skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 to 10 minutes. Spread ground beef mixture in a casserole dish. Spread green beans over the top of meat. Pour mashed cauliflower over the green beans. Sprinkle cheese on top of cauliflower. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until cheese is melted.
