"I had HUGE onions, so I used half a large, I grated the carrots so that they would fly under my husband's radar, and I cheated and used 2 boxes of Boston Market frozen mashed potatoes. "Wicked" good, as we New Englanders like to say! I also cracked an egg and used the white to brush the top of the pastry crust. It was done in 25 mins, and was still steaming hot after resting for almost 15 mins."

"I really enjoyed this recipe. Having the potatoes in mashed form to take the place of creamy "gravy" around the meat and carrots was an interesting, tasty twist! I'm not a huge fan of sage, so I cut back just a touch on that, but the seasoning combination was a really good one. The only thing I felt was missing from the recipe was more variety of vegetables.

I misread the ingredient list intitially and thought it called for puff pastry, which I had, instead of pie pastry, which I didn't, so I went with that sub and it turned out wonderfully."

"Turned out great! I used bouillon and water instead of broth and added a bit more salt."
