I have been making this dish since I was 14 years old and I am still asked to bring this to every potluck that I attend. I love this recipe. It's extremely fattening and yummy!

This was a great weeknight meal. It looked like the recipe would benefit from some additional seasonings, so I added garlic powder, pepper, and Italian seasoning to the meat mixture. Added salt and pepper to the mashed potatoes. Divided it into 2 dishes. Used more than 1/2 c milk, but that could be related to the size of potatoes used. Thanks for sharing.
