French Fridays with Dorie recipe is hachis parmentier. It's basically a potato casserole pie. To be honest, I wasn't that jazzed about this recipe. These kinds of dishes and not my favorites and I'm finding casserole's hard for the toddler right now. I don't think she likes her food to touch. If she's like her mom, it'll take awhile for her to grow out of it.
I chose the simpler route and used ground beef and beef broth. I also kept the vegetables in. Even though this isn't my kind of dish, I thoroughly enjoyed this meal. The flavor was great. I think in particular, the beef broth and Gruyere cheese really made the dish so delicious. I can only imagine if you went to all the work of cooking the beef the long way how great it would be. I probably won't do this dish again, even though it sure was tasty.
