1 tb Extra virgin Olive Oil
1 lb Lean Ground Beef
Med Onion, chopped
2 x Carrots, matchstick slices
1/2 ts Dried Thyme
1/2 c Baby Peas, canned or frozen
3 c Mashed potatoes
1 tb Unsalted Butter or oil
Preheat the oven to 350 deg F. In an all-iron skillet, heat the olive
oil and saute the beef, onion, carrots, and thyme together. Drain off
excess fat. Add peas to mixture and stir. Spread the potatoes on top.
Dot with butter or brush with oil. Bake until the crests of the
potatoes are lightly browned, about 20-30 minutes.
NOTE: The skillet should have an iron handle so it can go right in
the oven. If not, transfer meat mixture to baking dish before adding
