Recipe by PhoenixSpider

What is "mince and tatties"? - I hear you ask. Basically it is meat and potatoes, but with a Scottish recipe. Ever since I was a kid, I have loved mince & tatties, and even these days I could live on it.

I don't think this was a bad recipe at all, just not to my taste. It reminded me a lot of beef stew made with ground beef, and since I truly dislike beef stew, that's probably why I didn't care for this. It wasn't seasoned to my liking -- maybe it was a bad batch of beef gravy, who knows? At any rate, it smelled fabulous while cooking and looked like a very hearty meal. I think beef stew lovers would really like this!
