3 medium/large russet potatoes, peeled & small diced
1/4 cup milk
2 Tbsp butter
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
Salt & Pepper
Shredded Parmesan/Asiago/Romano Blend
1 lb ground beef
1 cup small diced carrots
1/2 white onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
Salt & Pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
Boil the potatoes for 15-20 minutes or until soft.
Preheat oven to 425 F.
Meanwhile, brown beef with carrots, onion, salt & pepper in a large non-stick skillet. Drain fat and return to pan.
Add garlic, thyme, sugar, Worcestershire sauce and broth to meat mixture. Simmer 3-5 minutes until liquid reduces a bit.
While the liquid is reducing, prepare the potatoes. Drain the water and put potatoes in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Add milk, butter, garlic, salt & pepper to taste. Whip the potato mixture until most lumps are gone, but don’t overmix to make it pasty. Set aside.
Add peas to meat mixture, stir and remove from heat. Pour meat mixture in bottom of a square baking dish. Spread evenly. Top with potatoes and drag fork over the top to make small peaks. Sprinkle the desired amount of cheese over the top of the potatoes. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the liquid is bubbly and top is browned.
