3 cloves garlic thinly sliced
3/4 cupcelery chopped (approximately 2 stalks)
2 cups mushrooms cleaned and sliced
3 tablespoons flour
2 pounds ground beef
salt and pepper to taste

10. Spread the mashed potatoes on top of the meat.
11. Sprinkle potatoes with Parmesan and Cheddar cheeses.
12. Bake pie for about 15 to 20 minutes.
13. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining chopped parsley. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
Hints and Clues
Allow all the liquid to be absorbed by the meat and vegetables so it doesn't spill out later.
If you cannot find pearl onions, just chop and add the onions you have at hand.
You can use leftover cooked hamburger meat rather than raw, or make the meat a day ahead and reheat it before cooking.
Top the pie with the Parmesan and Cheddar cheeses to help with the browning process. As the cheese bakes, it makes a nice crust on top of the potatoes.
