One of the recipes I remember with most nostalgia is this cottage pie that my mom used to make. It takes me back to my college days, when I would return home at the end of the semester to find my mom anxiously awaiting me with this feast. Nowadays, I regularly prepare it in my kitchen and my husband has come to call it one of his favorite dishes. A recipe that’s easy to prepare and so rica; an ideal way to spoil our most loved ones.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups water (or more, to completely cover the potatoes)
  • 6 large potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons Progresso™ bread crumbs
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons Muir Glen™ organic tomato sauce
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4-6 slices mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • 1
    Preheat the oven on the broiler setting.
  • 2
    Boil the water with some salt, keeping in mind that the water should cover the potatoes during the cooking process.
  • 3
    While the water is coming to a boil, peel and wash the potatoes. Dice the potatoes, add them to the boiling water, and let cook until tender.
  • 4
    Once the potatoes are cooked, drain and smash to form a mash.
  • 5
    Add the butter and bread crumbs, mixing them with the hot mashed potatoes.
  • 6
    Add the ground beef to a frying pan along with the chopped garlic. Cook over low heat, add the tomato sauce, salt and pepper. Let the beef brown in its own juices.
  • 7
    Grease a baking pan and add one layer of the mashed potatoes to the bottom of the pan. Next, create a layer of meat, and top with another layer of potatoes.

    Repeat the process until all ingredients have been used. Cover the top layer with the slices of cheese.

    Place dish in the hot oven until the cheese has cooked au gratin.
