  1. Pre­heat oven to 400°F. Clean and trim the pota­toes, leave the skins on. Cut and cook (boil) until ten­der. Drain the pota­toes and allow to steam dry for sev­er­al min­utes. Heat the milk and but­ter until warm, then add to the pota­toes. Mash!
  2. While the pota­toes are cook­ing, crum­ble and cook the ground beef in a skil­let. Drain and move the beef to a bowl.
  3. While the beef is cook­ing, chop the onions and any oth­er veg­eta­bles that need chopping.
  4. When the beef is done and removed, add the but­ter or oil to the skil­let. Add to the skil­let the veg­eta­bles that require the most cook­ing time such as onions and car­rots. Cook until ten­der, adding oth­er veg­eta­bles at the end of cook­ing time.
  5. When all the veg­eta­bles are just ten­der add the broth, salt, pep­per, pars­ley and the reserved beef. Mix togeth­er and sim­mer about 10 minutes.
  6. Place the beef and veg­etable mix­ture in a greased 9×13 inch bak­ing dish. Place the mashed pota­toes even­ly on top, spread­ing out to the edges.
  7. Use a fork to cre­ate lines and peaks in the pota­toes (for nice brown­ing). Bake for 30 min at 400°F.
