Blog With Friends: Cheese Steak and Potato Pie

Today’s post is the next in our series of Blog With Friends theme collaborations. Each month a group of bloggers get together and each publish a project based on a theme. What I love about this partnership is that it’s not bloggers with similar interests or strengths but a diverse group coming up with a variety of posts. In any given month we may have a recipe, sewing tutorial, crafts projects, book review and/or a technology post all related to the theme of the month.

This month's theme is Luck. There will be individual project pictures and links to what everyone else has to offer at the end of my post, but here’s a peek at what we all came up with:

For my project I made a Cheese Steak and Potato Pie.

Cheese Steak and Potato Pie 

How did I get from the theme of Luck to a Cheese Steak and Potato dinner pie? Well, there are two tie-ins. First, follow me now, since it's March and the theme is luck, my mind went straight to St. Patrick's Day. When I googled foods of the holiday, mostly what came up was Corned Beef and Cabbage (I still need to post my recipe for that) and lots of beef and potato dishes, including Beef Stew served over mashed potatoes. I've already posted my recipe for Rosemary Beef Stew so that was out, and I really wanted to come up with a unique idea of my own. That's when I came up with the idea of a version of Philly Cheese Steak, casserole style, with potatoes.

There you have it, how I got from Luck to Cheese Steak and Potato Pie. And here's how I decided to make it. I started by making a hash brown crust:

 I cooked thinly sliced steak, mushrooms, peppers and onions, and mixed in a few more ingredients.

 Cheese on the bottom and cheese on the top. Sprinkle with canned french friend onions and bake.

The other tie-in to the "luck" theme? Everyone loved it. I mean, I thought for sure there would be leftovers but they ate every single bite. For a first time try at a new recipe idea, that, my friends, is luck!

*To serve, top with lettuce and tomato.

  1. Making a crust out of potatoes shredded is brilliant! I guessed if I was feeling lucky I could make an upside down Shepherd's pie with mashed potatoes and ground beef, inspired by your recipe. Am I feeling lucky? Will let you know!

  2. Would you mind sending some of that yummy pie over so I don't have to worry about dinner tonight???

    I made some Mint Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Brownies today. C and his homework buddy / playdate were not thrilled. They suspected I put toothpaste in it. Not a good sign, huh.

    10 more sleeps till St. P's Day.... 🍀

    1. If he gets lucky enough to have this for dinner, I'd love to hear about it. The other kind of getting lucky, maybe you should keep that one to yourself, LOL.

  8. Right now you are lucky I don't live closer to you, because I'd be coming over for dinner each and every single night. This certainly looks tastier than most of my concoctions. I'm glad everyone loved it.
