“When I was young, my mom would make double the mashed potatoes and glazed carrots to save them for the shepherds pie dish. My dad loves chopped meat and I believe this came from a book that was entitled 101 ways to cook hamburger. Like my grandmother ,my mom improvised alot over the years and she finally settled on this recipe. You can add your own favorite veggies, use you imagination!!!”
