DIRECTIONS

  • If you are making homemade mashed potatoes, start them boiling or steaming with 3 cloves of garlic while you prepare meat mixture.
  • Saute onions and minced garlic in oil over medium heat, season with a pinch of salt and pepper for about 3 minutes.
  • Add ground meat and saute until almost done then add mushroom, rosemary and worchestershire and continue cooking til meat is done. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Add mixed vegetables and cook until thawed, then drain and add to baking dish. I used a 9x13 corningware casserole dish.
  • In same saute pan, melt butter over medium heat then whisk in flour until combined. (You want a light golden roux.) Then whisk in beef broth and cook continually whisking til gravy thickens, about 5 minutes. Taste and season accordingly, stir into meat mixture.
  • Mash cooked potatoes with cream cheese and sour cream. I used my kitchenaid stand mixer for ease and consistency, but not necessary. Slowly add buttermilk until you reach desired consistency. Salt and pepper to taste. Stir in italian cheese.
  • Spread potatoes over meat mixture, sprinkle shredded cheese on top. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
