Simple Shepherd's Pie

Recipe by  

"This is a recipe that my MIL gave me. It's French Canadian and called Pate Chinois, which translates to Chinese Pie. It's a little twist on shepherd's pie but it's simple, delicious and sticks to your ribs on a cold, wintry night! Leftovers (not typical in my house!) are even better as the flavors all blend nicely. Good comfort food!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes; drain.
  3. Mash potatoes with 2 tablespoons margarine; stir in milk. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat 2 tablespoons margarine in a large skillet over medium heat; stir in onions and saute until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Spread onions evenly over bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish.

Tastes just like Memère's! I like to sprinkle the top with a little paprika and parsley to jazz it up.
