Works for Me Wednesday


When I make a roast beef dinner, I try to get a roast that is big enough to have leftovers. When we are done eating, I shred the leftover roast and put it in the bottom of an 8x8 pan. I then pour some leftover gravy over it and leftover corn or beans over that. I cover than pan with foil, seal it tightly and freeze it. A few weeks later I put it in the refrigerator to thaw overnight. The next day I spread mashed potatoes over top. I use the ready made Bob Evans mashed potatoes. I then pop it into the oven for about 45 minutes at 350 degrees. This makes a really flavorful Shepherds pie. It's quick and easy and uses leftovers without complaints. It probably wouldn't make enough for Jennifer or Jennifer, but it works for us!

That is a neat idea. I have never heard of that way before. Actually, I have never even made a sheperds pie. Guess what? I made pot roast for supper tonight too. It was soooooo yummy!

That is too funny. Before I even read the bottom I was thinking, Hmm I wonder how big of a roast I would have to make to have enough leftovers for a whole 'nother dinner. That would be a whoppin' big roast!
Smiles!

Yum- I usually save my roast leftovers and make shredded beef sandwiches for leftovers. This sounds delicious though too!
