FFwD: Hachis Parmentier


Hachis Parmentier (ah-she pahr-men-tee-ay) is basically a Shepherd's Pie. Well, a French Shepherd's Pie, so that means it is fancier. :) Shepherd's Pie is one of my favorite meals and I was excited to try out this version.

It starts with this lovely mixture of onions, carrots, celery, beef, and spices in a big pot and it cooks for 1 1/2 hours. Holy moly, it smelled AMAZING! After it has cooked, the meat is cut up small and put into a casserole dish. And if that isn't enough, you brown sausage and add it to the beef mixture. Then you top it with delicious, creamy mashed potatoes and grated gruyere cheese. Seriously??? Comfort food doesn't get any better than this!

Once it is baked, it has a nice golden brown top and, if you are anything like me, you will burn your tongue tasting it because you just can't wait to eat it!

It was amazing!!! I will definitely be making it over and over again. It is totally worth the time and effort! SOOOOOO GOOD!!!! Now go buy Around My French Table so you can serve Hachis Parmentier to your family. They will love you forever!
