These mini pies came out amazing. Trying something new always pays off. Wine.... Yes Please!
4 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
zest of 1 lemon
1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1 clove garlic, minced
While potatoes are boiling, heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add onion and cook until clear. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add ground beef and Worcestershire and cook until well browned. Pour off excess fat, then stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Add red wine, beef broth, and frozen carrots and peas. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Spread the ground beef in an evenly among 8 ramekins.
For spooky mashed potato ghosts spoon the mashed potatoes into a large Ziploc back and cut a large hole in one corner. Pipe mashed potato ghosts and place two peas as eyes. Sprinkle the remaining cheese around the ghosts.
For regular shepherd’s pie: Top with the mashed potato mixture and sprinkle with remaining shredded cheese.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
