Casseroles aren’t the prettiest of foods, but they make yummy dinners! This casserole is one that my family really likes, and it’s on our regular dinner rotation whenever ground beef is on sale.

Tips for making Barbecue Shepherd’s Pie

  • I use a potato masher to make the mashed potato portion. It helps to keep the potatoes from getting overworked and gummy.
  • Use a barbecue sauce that you like. We like hickory or brown sugar barbecue sauces. Sometimes we use homemade barbecue sauce. Just use one that you like because it will provide a lot of the flavor for this casserole.
  • There’s no need to thaw the corn before use.
  • This casserole reheats well, and we like to have leftovers the next day for lunch.
