    danakscully64's Note:

    I made changes to the classic recipe to make this delicious vegetarian dish. Serve with brown gravy or ketchup. (1008977, come to think of it, 5 carrots does seem like a lot... I don't recall how many I used when I made it, but I believe I just used a large handful of baby carrots)

    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain and mash. Mix in butter, finely chopped onion and 1/4 cup shredded cheese. Season with salt and pepper to taste; set aside.
    2. 2
      Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add carrots and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain, mash and set aside. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
    3. 3
      Heat oil in a large frying pan. Add onion and celery and cook until clear. Add crumbles (and worchestershire sauce if using) and cook until well browned. Pour off excess fat, then stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Add ketchup, peas, and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Spread the crumbles mix in an even layer on the bottom of a 2 quart casserole dish. Next, spread a layer of mashed carrots. Top with the mashed potato mixture and sprinkle with remaining shredded cheese.
    5. 5
      Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with ketchup or gravy.

      Very tasty! I did not mash the carrots...just chopped them and cooked with the onions and celery. It was so delicious. I love having these vegetarian comfort foods.

      loved this recipe! i used yves ground round in replacement of the morningstar farms crumble. I also used only 1 large carrot that i chopped up and steamed. I did not mash the carrots and add them as a layer, i just mixed them in right after the mixture was cooked and thickened. so so yummy, even non vegetarians loved it!

      This is very very good. It is perfect for a cold night. Its the best comfort food. I don't like using so many carrots so usually I only add in 2. I think its the perfect amount. Other than that, its wonderful just the way it is
