Saute shallot and garlic in olive oil till transparent - about 2 minutes - add ground meat and seasoning, mix together and stir till meat is just cooked.

Add enough soup to barely coat meat mixture (2-4 T)

Divide evenly into foil liners, take a spoon and pack down tightly.

Top with 1 heaping T peas and 1 piece of cheddar.

Mix potatoes and onions, place about 1/2 C on top of cheddar, round and smooth the top to resemble a cupcake.

Sprinkle with 1 tsp Parmisan and dust with paprika.

Bake 10-15 minutes to lightly brown cheese

While baking, mix remaining soup with enough milk to make a sauce or gravy...serve it on the side.
