What a perfect dish to welcome in the cold weather. Its colder in Pennsylvania anyway. ;)
Leave your links, folks!

I wish I still had some of this tonight, so fantastic!
I could not have enjoyed this dish more. It has a particular significance for me, as I’m used to eating it at my uncle’s table (He is Moroccan), and I took a moment to explore the global significance in my post.
late late late:
I missed last week’s recipe, so I’m excited to be back! I’m posting early because I have an early day tomorrow and won’t be able to post again till Saturday!
can’t go wrong when fat meets starch!
I went totally experimental and used what I had available… but it was delicious!! Made enough for 6 and there’s one portion left, and only 2 of us eating :).
My post will be up after midnight. Looking forward to everyone’s hachis parmentier!
This was lovely, and making the beef from scratch was worth it:
Spring here, but still a lovely warming meal for the vagaries of Spring!
Lovely job – and your ode to the Lunch Ladies made me smile. I remember those days, and that rush to the playground.
When the 9-year old gives it a double thumb up, we know we have a winner.
I guess I have to be the first to say that I didn’t love it. http://147charlbury.wordpress.com/2010/10/22/hachis-parmentier
This was divine! Post will be up tomorrow!
This disappeared in record time, so it’s a good thing I only made half a recipe. Post will be up after midnight pdt.
This is the ultimate fall meal and in the Mid West the weather is cooperating. Enjoy!
I loved this recipe. My kids loved this recipe. Total success!:) I went with the quicker version and didn’t boil the beef. It was fantastic.
I didn’t love it BUT it was a nice surprise. I thought the potato topping was the star.
I loved this recipe!
Pretty sure I’m in the minority… :)
Up after 12a!
It’s rainy here, and I made it tonight. It was delicious, and the family loved it, too. My link will be live after midnight Pacific (that is, in about two hours): http://www.momfoodproject.com/2010/10/22/french-fridays-with-dorie-hachis-parmentier
Hands off my Hachis Parmentier!
Weren’t those crispy bits on top delicious?
Already looking forward to leftovers tonight!
(which will really make it French Friday rather than French Thursday!)
My son-in-law gives this recipe a 9 out of 10 rating. He told me I really out did myself. Great man food!
Mine will be up at 12:01 am Arizona time. :) I’ll update my link once it’s available.
Did anyone else try to do anything non-meat/vegetarian with this recipe?
Your “vege” version looks delicious. I will definitely use more veges next time!
We both really enjoyed this! It was fabulous! I cut the recipe down because there are only two of us and I fast tracked it using minced beef instead of the boiled beef. I will make again definitely! Would like to try it with the boiled beef sometime when I have more time to play!
Pictures of me with Dorie! So awesome!
Here is our Hachis Parmentier, made with lamb & spicy pork sausage:
I should have tripled this when I made it. So good!
Absolutely loved this dish – we’re 5 for 5 with this cookbook so far!!!
The boys and I all loved this dish…the sausage and chopped beef was SO much better than the hamburger version I’d made before! Excellent!
Dorie is 4 for 4!
This was my favorite recipe we’ve made with FFwD so far.
My husband loved this
I did the “main” recipe using a chuck steak & sweet Italian sausage. This way, the meat was really richly flavored but it takes a long time to make, so next time, I will make more (at least double but I think barefootkitchenwitch has the right idea: TRIPLE it!:)).
My college-age kids were crazy about it! Between the three of us, we ate about 3/4 of it…if my husband had been home for dinner that night, there would have been no leftovers. Leftovers were eaten for breakfast the next day…I couldn’t wait until lunch.
My picture is not worth looking at…very blurry…but I’m sticking to the rules so it’s posted. We didn’t realize the camera was not on auto focus :( http://cookingluciacara.blogspot.com/
This was a fabulous autumn dish!
This was yummy! Perfect for a cold night when snow is predicted.
Happy French Friday, everyone!
This was a great recipe to start with! http://foodfrombooks.blogspot.com/2010/10/french-fridays-with-dorie-hachis.html
Made the quick version. So fast and easy to throw together. Such a comfort meal!
Luckily I made this a week or two ago. I had a death in my family this week. My grandfather died.
So sorry to hear that Becca, our thoughts are with you.
Bring on the comfort food.
This was delicious. I missed posting last week since I was away on retreat, no phones, no computers.
Good stuff. Comfortable.
This is a real man’s dish of meat and potatoes. It was a hit at my house!
There’s really not much to be said, except that it is comfort food at it’s best!
Meat (venison) and potatoes. :)
And Michelle asked me to leave her link as well:
My photo is embarassingly bad but this was delicious!
Oh, so good!! I made it the full monty way, but I want to try the shortcut method, too, as so many people seem to like it.
My favorite dish so far! Who knew something so simple could rock my world so hard?
The quintessential date meal. Needless to say I have a VERY happy husband. http://www.thescreenporch.blogspot.com/2010/10/hachis-parmentier-week-three-french.html
OMG I am never doing this in the morning again!!!http://thescreenporch.blogspot.com/2010/10/hachis-parmentier-week-three-french.html
My husband and I loved this! It was maybe the most simple and most delicious meal I’ve had in a long time.
I think I’ve found my last meal.
Hachis Permentier: I can’t pronounce it correctly, but I love it. “What’s for dinner” was the question, “meat and potatoes” was the answer. It made the house smell divine. It tasted just as good. It is homey and comforting, and I can see why Daniel Boulud would crave it.

The dish was hearty and comforting. Our favorite recipe thus far.
SO WONDERFUL!!!! I am absolutely making this again and again I never thought to add italian sausage to the mix–totally elevates the flavor.
This dish went quickly at our house! Evryone loved it!
So good – this is my new go-to shepard’s pie recipe! http://wp.me/pwtL2-a2
So very, very, very good!
I made this for Sunday dinner for myself and my boyfriend, we both loved it! I think maybe next time I will make these in individual baking dishes and freeze some. Or maybe serve it for a dinner party (yes, I thought it was that good) in large ramekins…Here’s my link: http://bit.ly/9vxKlC
I made this dish for one! It turned out really well and I enjoyed this indulgent dinner by myself: http://thisfoodismyjam.blogspot.com/2010/10/ffwd-hachis-parmentier.html
Last week I missed out because it was too darn hot for hot soup. So glad it cooled off because we really enjoyed this dish.
Two thumbs up from the whole family!
The ultimate comfort food!
This weeks and last weeks all rolled into one short post :) They were both yummy.
We enjoyed Hachis Parmentiere thoroughly. It was simple to make and the balance of the flavors and textures was just right.
Next time I’ll try the longer version, with cubed beef.
Cannot wait for the next “installment”!
Dorie, why don’t you include thyme in your recipe for hachis parmentier? (Bocuse’s version calls for a lot of thyme…)
A delicious dish, even though I tried to mess it up by buying the wrong sausage!
Loved this one.
I think I need to try it again!
Delicious main course!
i don’t think i could have amaerican-ified it anymore than i did. oh well. still good!
Here ya go!!
This went over well, definitely comfort food.
This made for a lovely meal. We really enjoyed it!
This was delicious! And I’ve been a Shepherd’s Pie fan!
Meant to type “NEVER been a Shepherd’s Pie fan!”
This is my favorite so far! I made a few changes including more cheese(who doesn’t love more cheese!), a bit more tomato paste, using spicy sausage, and I also browned my meat first. I made a double batch because I thought we were really going to like it and I’m so happy that we did as everyone had enough for the next day too! This is my idea of comfort food.
Here’s a link to my photo(which I did not love as much as the dish):
I thought about browning the meat a bit too but didn’t. Mine was nothing like the colour in the book so I wonder if it was my choice of meat or if I should have browned a bit. Yours looks very yummy!
Thanks, Patti! I usually always brown my meat first as I find that it gives it a better flavor. Did you post your photo? I looked but didn’t see it.
It’s a few posts down.
I love how many variations there are in this list – yours looks delicious.
So very very yummy! The perfect fall meal and it reheats well too, so I had more for lunch…got lots of envious stares in the break room!
Oh man, this was SO good!
And with the weather starting to turn into true winter, it was a perfect meal to end the week with.
All I can say about this dish is YUMMY!!! http://www.awomanofacertainage.blogspot.com
Fun start to my first time with the group!
Patti, it looks fabulous! Did you use regular or spicy sausage? Congratulations too on starting your blog!
Had fun making this one…family thought it was just a tad bland even with spicy sausage. Definitely am not sure that cube steak made much of a difference over just doing with with ground beef as suggested in the Bonne Idea!
Loved making my first recipe from Around My French Table! I went with the short-cut and used ground beef, but it was delicious!
wow, so simple but so good!
This was the perfect meal for a cold, damp evening. It was delicious. I can’t wait to eat the leftovers tomorrow! http://1840farm.wordpress.com/2010/10/22/french-fridays-with-dorie-hachis-parmentier/
I missed last week recipe, so I tried to be on time today. I add a day totally off in the kitchen, I failed everything I tried…Too bad, the picture in the book looked yummy.
I understand and sympathize with the “everything failed” day. I spent a day baking for a cake walk and only three of the five things worked–and one only after significant modifications. Why do I always try new recipes when I’m on a deadline!
No Hachis Parmentier yet, but I did finally get my Mustard Tart post up!
I’m hoping to get both the HP and the apple cake posted next week. Then I’ll be caught up! =)
Ha! I finished it on time!
Quite a tasty version of shepherd’s pie…
This recipe was delicious! I really enjoyed it :)
Personally my favorite dish so far. But I love meat and potatoes!
Awesome dish. What a treat for dinner last night!
I managed to date my post for October 22nd, just barely. Here’s the link: http://onewetfoot.wordpress.com/2010/10/22/ffwd-hachis-parmentier/
Better late than never… my Hachi P was a metaphor for French living!
Trevor Sis. Boom.
Made this a week ago….but not wanting to post it early….I end up posting it late! It was a hit around here. I used cube steak and in the end it was so tender I couldn’t tell the difference between it and the sausage. It reminded me of decades ago when I’d do a meatloaf shaped into a circle and fill it and surround it with mashed potatoes and top them with cheese and paprika. Who would have dreamed that French cooking would be such comfort food? When I joined FFwD a friend commented that they didn’t think French food was up my ally. Guess everyone needs a bit of comfort! Thanks to Dorie for opening up our food world!
I meant that I couldn’t tell the texture between the cubed steak and the ground sausage…which made me think that a ground chuck would work as well,
I posted to my blog on Friday, but it took a little time for me to post the link. Silly me. http://redkitchenaid.blogspot.com/2010/10/ffwd-hachis-permetier.html
Woa, i know what i have missed !!
That makes it 3 goodies for me to catch up:-)
And catch up i sure want to, now am off to check all the deliciousness galore around!!
A wonderful autumn meal!
Thank you, Dorie, for helping me create a new family tradition!
Absolutely delicious. http://www.flickr.com/photos/maryeats/5108444782/
Loved this meal and still loving it! Doubled it and have lots of leftovers:)!
A day late! But I’m excited to post my first FFwD post. This turned out great!
This was such a great meal! I used the “quick” recipe and now that I can now make this anytime I want! http://bit.ly/bGqudG
Delicious. Cannot wait to make it again.
Not one of my favorite dishes, but there’s nothing wrong with it either… Just not one of my favorites.
Still…it was warm and comforting on a stormy night!
Better late than never!
So glad to finally be able to join you all. This was a tasty tasty dish, and I’ll be making this again. Can’t believe Shepherds Pie could be this good!
Here’s my Hachis Parmentier and a few pix of me meeting the wonderful Dorie Greenspan. Meeting her was such a delightful experience and I love her new cookbook!
Sorry for the late post…I had major trouble posting my pix. I got to finally figure out what was wrong and I can’t wait to make the next dish!
Sorry for the late post! I actually had made it ahead but was on vacation and didn’t get it posted.
In which I cop to the fact that I have issues buying beef.
I speak with my pictures :-)
Here is the link to my blog, InsomniMom with my Hacis Parmentier Experience – http://insomnimom.blogspot.com/2010/10/french-fridays-with-dorie-hachis.html
I had good results, but was extremely pleased that my family declared my beef pot pie (a similar type of dish) to be better. :>)
still late. and no pics. but a guarantee to be making it again, probably this month. I bet it goes well with semolina cake, but then I bet semolina cake goes well with anything…
Posted for this wonderful cool weather comfort food! http://grandmaskitchentable.typepad.com/grandmas_kitchen_table/2010/10/french-fridays-with-dorie-hachis-parmentier.html
I made two – one for us and one for my sister and her husband. We ALL loved it!
Here’s a link for Hachis and the Mustard Tart.
I just got the book and am playing catchup.
Not the most beautiful pictures, but I loved this dish!
