We really enjoyed this tonight. I used leftover pot roast and DH said I could make it anytime (high praise!). Now, as to the working of the recipe, the batter remains on the bottom and ends up being one dumpling on steroids (YES!, I can finally make a dumpling :D). I added no sweetening of any sort and it tasted marvelous with the meat topping. In the topping I skipped the Sherry (don't care for it) and used just red pepper. I would have liked a bit more gravy in the mix. It looked like plenty when I topped the batter but there wasn't much when it came out of the oven. A 2 serving size fed myself and DH with a bit left for Dh to have a snack tomorrow. I'm very glad that I tagged this in Photo Tag and it will be made again. :D
I thought this turned out pretty well, and I really liked the fact that there was no crust to fuss with and roll out. I used solely all-purpose flour and was out of sherry. I did have trouble both with the filling overrunning the pan and with getting the crust to cook in anywhere near the stated time (it took more like an hour) no next time I will use an 11X7 pan. Unfortunately, I ended up making this on an unexpectedly very warm day so my family complained that it was too hearty. I will make it again next winter and see what happens.
