My Healthy Skillet Shepherd’s Pie

  • The beef, it’s lean grass fed- 92% lean. One pound serves 6 people, so that means that I had to bulk up the servings with veggies to make this a satisfying meal.
  • I added in the requisite corn. A bulky veggie is always a win. Add to that more veggies: onion, carrots and celery for the double win.
  • And the rest of the gravy is really just a complete list from my playbook of ingredients to use when you want to make a comfort food beef recipe taste better- red wine, herbs and spices, a splash of Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste etc. It most certainly is not bland.
  • The mashed potatoes are on the rustic side (I like a little chunk) with only 2 tablespoons of butter in them and just a bit of low-fat buttermilk for tanginess.
  • And then I did something totally crazy. I put Swiss Cheese on top! And this is because I thought it would taste good. Folks, it does. Oh boy does it taste good!
  • The results: 390 calories for a complete meal. Totally comforting. Not authentic but totally delicious and a lot healthier.


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
