These Shepherd’s Pie Sliders work great as an easy weeknight dinner or as a party snack.
They are so simple to make and taste delicious.
Shepherd’s pie is my husband’s favourite dish but personally I find it a little boring.
Last night for supper I decided to give new life to the classic dish.
I used the traditional shepherd’s pie ingredients as filling for sliders.
I was a little worried about how this recipe would turn out but they were AMAZING!
I love sliders because they can be a meal or a snack.
They are great for entertaining.
Plus there’s just something really adorable about mini sandwiches.
They’re perfect for kids.
Still, trying to turn shepherd’s pie into a mini sandwich was risky.
But I was determined to try.
I started by browning some ground beef and pork..
While it was cooking I prepared some instant mashed potatoes.
I combined the mashed potatoes with the browned meat and stirred in some canned corn.
I also stirred in some powdered beef gravy mix for extra flavour.
I spread the mixture on some dinner rolls and baked them in the oven until the buns were nicely toasted.
I am so happy with how these turned out.
They taste just like shepherd’s pie but in a convenient mini sandwich form.
The filling is juicy and bursting with flavour.
These sliders are perfect for an easy dinner or as a party snack.
Be sure to try these Shepherd’s Pie Sliders next time you are entertaining!
