Shepherd's Pie

1 Tablespoons butter or margarine
1 cup thinly sliced carrots (I sub one can sliced carrots drained)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can (10 1/4 oz) Beef Gravy (I just make up one beef gravy packet instead)
1 1/2 cups cooked cubed beef (I use leftover roast)
2 cups hot cooked mashed potatoes (I use a pkg of instant mashed potatoes)
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

In a 2 qt. microwave safe casserole dish combine the butter, carrots, and onions. Cover with lid and microwave on high for 5 min., stirring once during the cooking time. Stir in the gravy and the beef. Cover and microwave on high 5 min. or until bubbly, stirring once during cooking. Spoon hot cooked mashed potatoes around edge of casserole dish and sprinkle them with cheese. Microwave uncovered on high for 3 min. or until cheese is melted.

** I like to use this recipe when I have leftover roast from the To Die For Crockpot Roast
