Mashed Potato Pork Pie Casserole Recipe - Pork Pie is really an English Dish. With this recipe we are taking the classical meat pie making it into a casserole with mashed potatoes. Pork Pies have been around forever. I don’t think they are very much in fashion over on this side of the pond, but our mother country still eats them like they are Big Macs.
A good pork casserole will make your mouth water. I think we have pulled out all of the stops with this one. The garlic and Dijon mustard add just the right amount of zest to this pork casserole recipe. And of course any mashed potato casserole is always a welcome sight on the dinner table.
We have several pork chop casserole recipes that are being prepared to be posted online. Many people seem to enjoy them. Admittedly they are more popular in the USA than meat pie. But this recipe is so good that I really think you should try it.
How To Make Mashed Potato Pork Pie Casserole
7 tablespoons butter, divided
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups roast pork pan juices or beef broth, heated to boiling
2 cups chopped cooked lean roast pork (with grizzle & fat removed)
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
3 large baking potatoes (about 1.5 pounds total), peeled and cubed
1/2 cup milk, heated
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons fine dry breadcrumbs
Preheat oven to 400F
In a large skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter and add the onion and garlic.
Sauté for 15 minutes over medium heat, stirring often, until the onion is soft and aromatic.
Sprinkle the flour evenly over the onion and garlic, whisk in the hot pan juices or broth, and boil until thickened. Add the pork, mustard, thyme and parsley and set aside.
For the potato crust, put the potatoes into a deep large saucepan, cover with water, and boil until fork-tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain. With a hand mixer, beat in 4 tablespoons of the butter, the hot milk, and salt.
Spread out about a third of the potato mixture evenly in the bottom of a shallow 2 to 2 1/2 quart casserole. Top with the pork mixture, and pipe the remaining potato mixture around the edges with a pastry bag or spoon.
Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a small saucepan and mix with the breadcrumbs. Sprinkle on the center of the casserole. Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are lightly browned.
