    swissms's Note:

    Easy to prepare. A great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes (just stir in some cheese). You can also add some thyme and/or rosemary to the meat mixture.

    6. 6
      Preheat oven at 400 degrees F.

      Add butter and oil to a large skillet on medium heat. Saute onions, carrots, celery and garlic until tender for about 7 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
    8. 8
      Once the vegetables have softened and start to brown a little add the tomato paste and mix evenly.
    9. 9
      Add the ground beef and cook until beef is no longer pink about 10 minutes.
    10. 10
      Add the Worcestershire sauce and beef stock. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook and simmer for another 10 minutes. Mix in peas.
    11. 11
      Transfer mixture to an oven-proof baking dish and spread evenly. Place cheesy mashed potatoes on top of ground beef mixture and spread out evenly, once the top surface has been covered, rake through with a fork so that there are peaks that will brown nicely. Place the dish into the preheated oven and cook until browned about 20 minutes.

      I loved this and I haven't gotten a chance to ask my family yet. There are 3 great parts: meat, veges and mashed potatoes. My DH finished this up for me after I went to work tonight, The only ingredient we didn't use was the peas and we didn't have any. Made for PRMR.

      My kids are extremely fussy but they all ate this and told me it was good. So I have to give this the highest of marks. Thank you and I will be adding it to my cookbook.
