Remarks:

For a more sophisticated recipe, you can:

  • Make more than 4 layers of mashed potato-meat-mashed potato-cheese, for example mashed potato-meat-mashed potato-cheese-meat-mashed potato-cheese. You should, of course, finish with a layer of mashed potato sprinkled with cheese.
  • Add some cream to the mashed potatoes
  • Add some chopped ham or bacon to the meat
