Great basic recipe that lends itself well to personal adaptation. I used all the listed ingredients and added some things to suit my family's taste: I sauted one large onion and a large clove of garlic with the ground beef, and I cooked the mushrooms with it in the pan. I also seasoned with a No-Salt seasoning blend, some garlic pepper, and a couple dashes of Emeril's Original Essence. I also reduced the number of carrots and added some frozen mixed veggies in the veggie layer. I did NOT mash the carrots and left them sliced so my toddler could eat them more easily. Following previous suggestions, I added 1/4 c. Worcestershire, and I increased the broth to 1 cup. b/c mine got a little dry from simmering it longer than the instructions. When mashing the potatoes, I added milk, butter, salt, and pepper. I used a 3qt. casserole dish, which made a thinner pie, but I think I added too much, so it wouldn't fit as well in my 2qt dish. Hehe! I waited for the potatoes to start to get golden before topping with cheese. My hubby LOVED it, and we will definitely be making it again! Thanks for the recipe!
