Ok, it perfectly mashed once I used a fork and mix all that potato mess together.

- 1 lbs ground bison (or beef) - $5.94
- 1 onion chopped- $1.20 each
- 16 oz bag of frozen vegetables - diced carrots and peas- $1.50 each
- 1 1/2 - 2 lbs potatoes (3 big ones)- $3.99 for a 5lb bag
- 8 tablespoons butter (1 stick)- free from previous purchase
- 1/2 cup beef broth- $0.99 per can
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce- $1.49 per bottle
- Salt, pepper, other seasonings of choice - free from previous purchase
2 While the potatoes are cooking, melt 4 Tablespoons butter (1/2 a stick) in large frying pan.
3 Sauté onions in butter until tender over medium heat (10 mins). If you are adding vegetables, add them according to cooking time. Put any carrots in with the onions. Add peas either at the end of the cooking of the onions, or after the meat has initially cooked.
4 Add ground beef and sauté until no longer pink. Add salt and pepper. Add worcesterchire sauce. Add half a cup of beef broth and cook, uncovered, over low heat for 10 minutes, adding more beef broth as necessary to keep moist.
5 Mash potatoes in bowl with remainder of butter, season to taste.
6 Place beef and onions into ramekins about half way. Distribute mashed potatoes on top. Rough up with a fork so that there are peaks that will brown nicely. You can use the fork to make some designs in the potatoes as well.
7 Cook in 400 degree oven until bubbling and brown (about 30 minutes). Broil for last few minutes if necessary to brown.
The entire dish cost about $16. This could be cheaper if using ground beef. I loved eating this dish out of ramekins but I do recognize that I am turing a manly meat and potatoes dish into a danity girlie dish but whatever. It tasted so good.
