looked this up on the internet, then added my own spices to make it my own. I cook almost everything with garlic. Also the next time I make it I think I'll sprinkle 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese in between the meat and mashed potato layers. I think that would be real tasty too. Let me know what you think.
