Why I Love This Recipe

Beef, potato, and egg. Can't go wrong!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pound ground beef
2 cups onion (red or white, your choice)
1 bunch green onion
1/3 cup jalapeño
1/2 tablespoon cumin
1/2 tablespoon sugar
2/3 cup tomato puree
salt to taste
one container of pre-made mashed potatoes (about 1.5 pounds)
4 hard boiled eggs
Grated parmesan cheese to taste
Chives to garnish


chop onions and combine in a large pot. At the same time, hard boil your eggs

cook on low/medium heat until they begin to brown, then add jalapeños

once onions are fully browned, add in the beef, and continue to cook on medium heat until fully cooked. Stir occasionally

Mix in cumin, sugar and tomato puree. Stir to combine

Salt to taste, and set aside

Follow instructions on the back of the mashed potatoes container until ready

Preheat oven to 400. Spray your baking tin with cooking spray or oil, and line the bottom with a thin layer of mashed potatoes, just to help hold the pie together when ready

Place the beef on top of the potatoes

Place the eggs in a thin layer on top of beef

Layer the rest of the mashed potatoes evenly on top of the eggs

If desired, sprinkle parmesan cheese on top, and place in oven for about 25 minutes or until top begins to brown

Garnish with chives and enjoy!
