I too "upped" the spices a bit in the meat by adding pepper, garlic and a tablespoon of brown sugar, which with additional ketchup gave it a slightly sloppy joe taste. I blended the cheese into the potatoes rather than having them lay on the top, sprinkling a touch of paprika to the top to give it some color. I sauteed some mushrooms with the beef too. A pre-baked crust worked really well and I didn't want the juice of the corn sogging the crust, so I followed the advice of the other reviewers and put my corn on top of the beef - although I don't know why you couldn't just mix it in as well. It was a nice, hearty winter meal that my meat and potatoes family really enjoyed. I served it with the recipe for Sweet Dinner Rolls and it was a hit!
