This was very easy to make because I used leftover roast beef, instant mashed potatoes (Barbara's brand!), and leftover gravy. The meat was shredded and cooked in a little bit of oil with the onion. I also added a sprinkle of salt-free garlic powder to the meat. Threw in the vegetables, diluted gravy to make 1 cup "broth" and heated through. Topped with the mashed potatoes and sprinkled top of pie with paprika. I believe I had the pie prepped in less than 15 minutes. After removing pie from oven, allow to cool for 10-15 minutes. It is easier to serve that way. Each serving had a dollop of sour cream, too. Thank you, Impera!

Delicious! I had left-over mashed potatoes from Thanksgiving and used a pound of venison from my deer-hunting brother-in-law. I had some celery to use up and threw that in the mix as well. For easiness, I used 1 cup of frozen peas & carrots. The only change I would make would be to use 1/2 the salt and add more at the table if desired. Thank you for the great recipe! I love these kinds of homey dishes and will make again!

I liked the base but the egg seemed to thin down the potatoes and they were a little runny. I think the base would make a pretty good pot pie filling.

I've made this several tie for myself, and pot-lucks. The original, and variations. Always turns out great. Typically, I'll add extra veggies to fill it out, Finely chopped squash and zuccini work well. I made a nice varient -Texas style. No peas, add green, and red bell pepper. Add 4-8 oz chopped green chilies, use red onion, and add some corn. Turned out awesome.

A very easy, hearty dish to make. Just felt that it lacked a little in flavour. I will definitely make it again but will add some extra herbs for that bit of extra flavour. Thanks for another dish to add to my collection.

We enjoyed this comforting dish with a salad (balsamic dressing), and dinner rolls. I added a few dashes of Angostura bitters and mixed the cheese into my potatoes. I baked it at 275 for about 50 minutes (while I was on the go). Everyone cleaned his plate tonight. Roxygirl

I made a vegetarian version using veggie "ground round", and vegetable bouillon. Fabulous, a big hit. Easily lives up to the meat version!

Made this tonight. After reading the reviews, I omitted most of the added salt altogether and made an extra helping of gravy on the side (we like gravy). This was really good even without the added salt. I will make this again.
