Delicious, down home comfort food. I was hoping to have some leftovers for lunch tomorrow but DH finished of the casserole. This is a keeper. Made for ZWT6 Family Picks

This had a very tasty flavor, which my husband and I quite enjoyed. I think my daughter would enjoy this as well, so I may make it for her sometime, when she craves simple, filling, comfort foods. And while I wouldn't go so far as to say the mashed potatoes were proportionately heavy in regard to the meat, I think there is plenty of room in the pie for something extra. Perhaps sauteed mushrooms? Bill and I both would quite enjoy this with a pint of stout, and while he can partake, I will have to wait to be off some medicines, and I feel a bit wistful about that, so I do believe stout is the perfect match. Made for ZWT6. Thanks for sharing!

Oh, this is good! So rich and buttery, and I love the way the potatoes get a golden brown crust on top. Delightful recipe.
