Doggie Shepherd’s Pie
Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a pie dish with nonstick cooking spray.
In a large skillet or pan, cook the ground beef over medium-high heat until browned and cooked through. Drain any excess fat.
Sprinkle the cooked ground beef with the flour and toss to coat, continuing to cook for another minute. Add the tomato paste and broth and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for about 5 minutes or until the sauce is thickened slightly.
Add the corn, peas, breadcrumbs, and beaten egg and mix until thoroughly combined.
Spread the mixture evenly into the prepared pie dish.
In a large bowl, mix the mashed potatoes with the cheese until well combined. Pipe or spoon the mashed potatoes on top of the meat mixture. Place the pie onto a baking sheet.
Bake for about 20 minutes, or until the potatoes begin to brown. Remove the pie to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before serving to your pup.
Note: It's ok to use instant potatoes as long as they are 100% potato. The small amount of milk and butter won't hurt unless your dog is lactose intolerant. In that case, just omit those ingredients.
