I was always told if I dug a hole straight down I'd reach China... but I know what you mean. Good one.

MsM, I wondered what you meant by deconstructed. Now I know.
Good and filling on a cold day for sure

Thank you everyone.

I started making it this way because the original way had the taters and cheese on top and then you baked it. It was wonderful. BUT leftovers were a pain to reheat because taters are dense and take awhile to reheat. By the time the taters were hot the meat and veggies were overcooked. This way you can reheat the meat and veggies and taters separately OR make fresh mashed the second day.

You can always grind the chives in a food processor.

Yup nice on a cold day or whenever the feeling hits you. It's quick and easy.
