How To Make Mini Shepherd’s Pot Pies


1 box Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crusts, softened as directed on box SAVE $
1/2 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1 small onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
4 teaspoons all-purpose flour
3/4 cup Progresso™ beef flavored broth (from 32-oz carton)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups frozen mixed vegetables
1 package (24 oz) refrigerated mashed potatoes (about 3 cups)


  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll pie crusts. On lightly floured surface, roll or press each crust to 12 inches diameter. Using 4-inch round cutter, cut 6 rounds from each crust.
  2. Gently press rounds floured-side-down in bottoms and up sides of 12 ungreased regular-size muffin cups. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until lightly browned.
  3. Meanwhile, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes or until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in flour until blended. Add broth, salt and pepper. Cook about 2 minutes or until mixture thickens. Stir in frozen mixed vegetables. Fill each muffin cup with about 1/4 cup beef mixture.
  4. Top each with slightly less than 2 tablespoons potatoes. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until potatoes are lightly browned.
  5. To freeze: After placing pies in muffin cups, wrap muffin pan in foil, and freeze completely. Transfer frozen pies to labeled gallon-size resealable freezer bag. To bake: Heat oven to 375°F. Remove desired number of pies from bag, and place in sprayed muffin cups or ramekins on cookie sheet. Loosely tent with foil that has been sprayed with cooking spray; bake 20 minutes. Remove foil, and bake 8 to 10 minutes longer or until instant-read thermometer inserted in center reads 165°F.
