do you brown the ground beef first?

Nope. It will cook in the oven.

Just boiled and mashed potatoes like you would normaly make. When you press the mixture in the bottom and up all four sides you are left with a trough in the center. This is delish. will make it again.

In Cooking how do you make a Trough may I ask

I never said my light bulb fully lights up, so I have a question. The potatoes, are they just boiled and simply mashed or are they mashed with the ingredients that I use to make mashed potatoes (using milk and margarine)?
