"I started making this for my family when I was around 13. My brother Adam, who I call Adi, was crazy about it. Some people use creamed corn, I found that the frozen corn kept everything nice and moist. I eyeballed everything in this recipe, so hopefully the amounts are fairly accurate. Enjoy..."

"We are big cottage (or shepherd's) pie fans in our house. When I saw this recipe I couldn't wait to try it, I never thought of adding a layer of corn between the meat and the potatoes. I also loved the mashed potatoes mixed with the fried onions, I had the BH and the kids fighting over the crust. Instead of using garlic and onion powder I used fresh garlic and lots of paprika. There's just enough pie left over for dinner tonight, I hid it all the way back in the fridge so the BH doesn't find it first! Thanks, Aviva, I really enjoyed this dish!"
"I made this ahead of time and used it for dinner the next night,it was delish and it kept well over night in the frig. My son took the left overs home and he raved about it too!!! This will be a recipe I will use again for sure. "
"Came out really sticky... and had almost no taste..."
"This is real comfort food! I top it with paprika and let it bake, then get out the way when the teenage boys get a whiff, because you could get hurt. And if there are leftovers, they heat up well."
"Wow! between simplicity and taste this is a winner!! I also added canned corn and a can of green beans. and some shredded cheddar to the potatoes, but not too much to over power any other flavors. Delish! Good way to get kids to eat the veggies, especially when they can't see them. My BF didn't like the strong garlicky taste but it was right for me. It might have had something to do with me making Cheddar-garlic bisquits also. but it is a definite favorite in this house. Thanks for sharing!"
"This has become a favorite family recipe, pleasing some very particular teens. It's also good with ground turkey."
"This was really easy to put together. My 7 yr old made the "meat loaf" herself and we used leftover garlic mashed potatoes from the night before. This was great served with buttered bread and apple sauce. Thanks for the recipe!"
"This dish was enjoyed by a family of 7, and when all asked to 'rate' it we had a majority of 4 *'s. I will make it again but I think I too will brown the mince first. Thanks very much for sharing. :)"
"Superb comfort food and a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes. Instead of the amount of ground beef required I used only one pound and 3 leftover chorizo sausages and only one onion. I also used less salt than suggested and only one tablespoon garlic powder. I topped this off with some leftover grated cheese. Although I used less mashed potatoes (about 1 1/2 cups) this was perfect cooked in an 8x8 pan for a bit over an hour (due to my tempermental oven). Delicious with just a loaf of wholesome bread for the perfect comfort mid-week meal and we still have enough left over for some lunches during the week! Thanks for sharing!"
"I really loved the flavor of this dish and the frozen corn is a great substitution but I did not like the texture of the ground beef it seem like it was boiled. I'll continue to make this recipe but I'll brown the beef the next time."
