If there isn’t enough, just add some butter. 7. add flour to the meat filling and coat everything thoroughly. 8. then add any beef stock you have. Gatsby used aus jus. Use whatever you want though. 9. now take a glass that has a larger mouth than your muffin tins and use it to cut out pie crusts. 10. brush these with butter and then flour to prevent them from sticking as you set them on a plate to the side. 11. poke the bottom of each crust with a fork to prevent bubbles. 12. bake them in the oven at 350°F for 5 minutes, blind baking the crust. 13. once the crusts are done, take your meat filling and fill to about 2/3 of the crust. Add a 1/4 cup scoop of instant potatoes to the top and bake at 350°F for about 8 minutes. 14. Tada! You now have amazing mini shepherd’s pies
