Bob Evans Holiday Cooking

Around the holidays, we tend to do a whole lot of cooking. This year we will be making a big meal for Christmas dinner at my house. It seems that not only are the meats we go with very important, but the sides are also important. Well this year I am going to be doing several sides as well as a few main dishes. Recently I was sent a amazing pack from Bob Evans to review for my readers. In this pack I got a great lunch box that is perfect for packing lunches in, inside the lunch box was a Bob Evans Side Dish of mashed potato, some coupons for some Bob Evans products, and a really cool Potato Clock!! With this set I was asked to try not only the side dishes, but also do something a little different with the side dishes.

I love Shepherd’s Pie. It is one of my favorite dishes to make. Well I found an amazing recipe on the Bob Evans site where I found a recipe for some Shepherd’s Pie that I can make using the Bob Evans Mashed Potatoes. I also found other recipes on the Bob Evans site that I found to look very appetizing and ones that I am going to have to try. The Shepherd’s Pie was very easy to make and the end result was amazing, in fact, it was so amazing, I had finished making it, went to grab my camera and returned to the kitchen to find my husband serving it up for us and the kids. Oh well, I found a pic of what it will look like when you are done cooking it, and yes, it is as amazing as it looks!

    Thanks for the recipe. I never thought about using Bob Evan's sides to create another recipe. These come in handy during the holidays when it is so busy!

    That recipe sounds great! Know what I thought it was in the photo before I read? It looked to these not so good eyes like eggs on the top. LOL

    lol, I did not even see that until you said it. It was good, they have a meatloaf that looks pretty good as well, but shepherds pie is a fave of mine!
