From my kitchen in downtown Toronto, I'm baking and cooking and keeping my family fed.

FFwD - Hachis Parmentier
I tried to capture the bubbling goodness that is this French version of shepherd's pie. I seldom make a dish like this because my family prefers their meat and potatoes separately. In fact, they thought the potato layer was too thick.
The meat layer was very popular. I've never used sausage meat in a dish. The combination of ground beef and sweet Italian sausage was delicious. I will definitely use this recipe again.
As you can see I added mixed vegetables including edamame, carrots and corn. I also left the skin on the red potatoes. For the cheese that was scattered over the potoates, I used Ementhal.
This is another wonderful recipe from Dorie Greenspan's new cookbook Around My French Table. If you don't have it yet, I hope it's on your holiday wish list.
