Chunks of meat and veggies are smothered in robust gravy and topped with silky mashed potatoes and cheese.
A potato ricer is a little bit of an extra step, but it is great for making silky smooth mashed potatoes without whipping them into glue.
A note on freezing... If you are making this with the idea to freeze some (or all of it) I suggest allowing the filling to cool completely before assembling the pies. Even chilling the filling before piping the warm potatoes on will allow the pie to cool sooner once assembled (the potatoes still need to be warm or they will not spread properly). I also suggest placing the assembled pie the refrigerator overnight before putting it in the freezer. You don't want to place the luke warm pie in the freezer.
When you are ready to cook the frozen pie simply place it in the fridge overnight and cook the next day as directed.
