Bo Peep Pie

I've never been a huge fan of Guy Fieri, but back in the day when he actually cooked on his show instead of just being a host, there were a few of his recipes that I tried out. This recipe is one of them.

There are a number of components to this dish, and I started off roasting the veggies and garlic. 

While the veggies were in the oven, my attention then turned to browning up sausage and some chopped sirloin. When that was done, some onions were tossed into the same pan and cooked until they caramelized a bit. The browned meats were then returned to the pan, some flour was added, then the pan was deglazed with some beef stock and Worcestershire sauce. The roasted veg, minus the garlic, was then added to the pan.

While the meat and veg mixture hung out together, I made the garlic mashed potatoes. After the potatoes were cooked and drained, I added in the roasted garlic, salt, butter, milk, and grated Parmesan cheese. The recipe calls for Asiago, but that's not something we can get in Corozal.

Anyhow, with all these pieces and parts ready to go, the time came to assemble the dish.

The meat/veg  mixture was put in a baking dish, then topped with the cheesy mashed potatoes.

A healthy sprinkle of more grated Parmesan was put on top of the potatoes. This hefty dish was then placed in a pre-heated 350-degree oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes. 

That's some tantalizing goodness right there.

We thoroughly enjoyed this combo. The meat provides a rich taste and texture, the roasted veggies lend their sweetness, and those mashed potatoes are to quote Mr. Fieri, "Out of bounds!" And it tastes even better as leftovers!
