    I would agree that is seems best to brown the meat first and stirring raw meat into mashed potatoes does not sound appealing and i almost think it might color the potatoes if raw (bloody).

      Thanks, Nana, if you concur, I feel much better!

    Just a thought—this recipe seems almost like a souffle, and as such, I think where it says to add the beaten eggs and parsley, that should be just the yolks. You add stiffly beaten whites later. That is why she says it will be light and fluffy. Since it bakes for 1 hour, the beef would probably be okay unbrowned but it wouldn’t hurt to brown it. I’d add more onion too!

      Dorothy, I think you are absolutely right about this and I’m going to change the instructions to reflect that!

    I second the notion of browning ground beef. As a not-so-newlywed, I made a breakfast pizza for a ladies’ brunch at church. The directions didn’t say to brown the ground sausage, but it was evident when I pulled it out of the oven that I should have done so. Much of the sausage did cook through, but some of it remained raw. It was horrible.

      Ugh, doesn’t sound good, but live and learn!

    #5 is “beaten eggs” and #7 is stiffly beaten “egg whites”, so there is a hitch there. Either more than two eggs total, or #5 is supposed to be just the yolks that are beaten first.

      Dan, I did just print the instructions “as is”, I am sure the Amish woman who wrote out the recipe knew in her head what she meant, but just didn’t articulate it well, I am making some changes to the instructions now re the eggs!
