We enjoyed this dish very much. I also appreciated the tone in which the recipe was written. I used 2 cups of water in the meat mixture to make the gravy. With less than that it was pasty. I used 3 large russet potatoes for the mashed potatoes and a bit more than 1 cup of milk. I should have backed off the amount of milk since I did opt for the egg. I baked this in 6 - 8 oz ramekins and it worked very well. It still took 20 minutes for the mashed potatoes to get some brown on the top. The ratio of meat mixture to potatoes was about 1:1 before cooking. After cooking it seemed more like 1:2, and we all agreed that next time less mashed potatoes would be preferred. Thanks for sharing! Made for Spring PAC 2014.
