These Mini Shepherd's Pot Pies are a perfect winter meal! They are really easy to make, ready in 30 minutes or less and they will definitely fill your family's tummies.

There are certain nights of the week that we are super busy after school.  On those nights, we don’t get home until after 6 pm, so I don’t have a long time to get a meal on the table. I actually prefer 30 minute (or less) meals on those days because I like to have dinner done and over with by 7 pm so that we can start our night time routine. One of my family’s favorites are Mini Shepherd’s Pot Pies. Talk about comfort food!!  The Mini Shepherd’s Pot Pies are ready in about a half hour and they go over big with my family.
