On one side of things, I was dreading the whole meat and potato layered in a dish combination.
On the other hand, I knew that this was the perfect opportunity to nudge me into making a recipe that I had been avoiding for a very long time in my mission to cook all the way through Dorie Greenspan's Around My French Table.
You run in the opposite direction and it U-turns you right back around.
It turns out that I liked this a lot more than I thought I would.
I will probably never be 100% on the "meat pie" train, but I have definitely found one that I can live with.
The original recipe for Dorie Greenspan's Hachis Parmentier can be found here on the NPR website. Below is my "shortcut" version.
