  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs (about 6) potatoes
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 egg
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 onion thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cup sliced mushroom
  • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Method

Peel potatoes; cut into chunks. In saucepan of boiling salted water, cover and cook potatoes until tender, about 12 minutes. Drain and return to pan; remove from heat. Add milk, butter and half each of the salt and pepper; mash with potato masher until smooth. Stir in 1/4 cup (50 mL) of the flour and 1 of the eggs.

Meanwhile, in large nonstick skillet, sautee beef over medium-high heat, breaking up with wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Drain off fat.

Add onions, mushrooms, caraway seeds and remaining salt and pepper; cook over medium heat, stirring, until onions are softened, 8 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining flour; cook, stirring, for 5 minutes.

Spread half of the potato mixture in 8-inch (2 L) square glass baking dish. Spoon meat mixture over top. Top with remaining potato mixture. Beat remaining egg; brush over potato mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until topping is golden, 30 to 40 minutes.
