This pie is really yummy, I usually make it in pastry so that it can be frozen but original recipe is with potato topping so that's what I'm posting. From a Family Circle Mince Cookbook

Most of the time I enjoy my sweet potatoes sweet, but this recipe makes for a tasty pie & one that we found very comforting! I also opted out of the potato topping & used puff pastry for it instead ~ A very nice touch, too, I thought! And in deference to my other half I also left in the mushrooms! This is definitely a keeper recipe for us! [Made & reviewed in Gimme 5 tag]
