    Potato Topping

    * 6 medium Yukon gold potatoes, scrubbed
    * Coarse salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
    * 1/4 cup half and half cream (60 ml)
    * 1 tablespoon butter (15 ml)
    * Pinch freshly grated nutmeg
    * Salt and pepper

    Meat Filling

    * 1 tablespoon butter (15 ml)
    * 2 pounds ground beef (454 g)
    * 2 small onions, finely chopped
    * 2 cloves garlic, chopped
    * 2 stalks celery, finely diced
    * 2 carrots, finely diced
    * 2 teaspoons fresh chopped thyme (10 ml)
    * 1 teaspoon dried oregano (5 ml)
    * 1 cup beef stock (250 ml)
    * 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (15 ml)
    * 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard (15 ml)
    * Coarse salt and freshly cracked black pepper


Potato Topping

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Put potatoes into a roasting pan and bake for about 50 minutes to 1 hour, until easily pierced with a fork. Remove from oven, peel and put into a large bowl. Mash potatoes and add butter, cream, nutmeg, and salt and pepper. Stir with wooden spoon until blended. Adjust seasoning.

Meat Filling

1. Put butter into a large deep skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and sauté until softened. Add garlic and continue to sauté for 3 minutes. Add meat, breaking it apart and stirring until it’s browned. Add the celery, carrots, thyme, oregano and cloves and season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook over high heat until carrots begin to soften. Pour stock into pan and then add the Worcestershire and Dijon. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low. Season the mixture with salt and pepper and simmer covered, until meat is tender and moisture is absorbed, about 20 minutes. Put meat mixture into a rectangular baking dish (about 7 ˝-inches x 11 ˝-inches and at least 3-inches deep). Spread the mashed potatoes over top and bake until top is golden and meat filling is bubbling, about 25 to 30 minutes.
