Hachis Parmentier

It's cold and rainy here in upstate New York and a perfect day to fill the kitchen with wonderful smells.  This week's French Fridays with Dorie pick is a fancy shepherd's pie.  Chopped chuck is simmered in a mixture that becomes a lovely broth.  Cooked sausage is added to this and then lovely mashed potatoes smoothed on top.  With a bit of gruyere and a half an hour in the oven, this was a wonderful meal.  We also had green beans and, of course, red wine.


  1. Looks so good, the way you set your photo up!

  2. I wonder if it's possible to make a vegetarian version of this... with lentils and mushrooms maybe? Although I'm not sure what I could do about the sausage.
