She based her recipe on the Passover recipe in Second Helpings but changed it around because I prefer to not eat matzo meal.
My dad's mom used to make a similar dish she called a mini pastel, which is a Sephardic meat, potato and egg casserole (like a cool Sheppard's pie). Her version would be spiced with cumin, tumeric and paprika - more "exotic" than my mom's Ashkenaz version that goes all out with the salt and pepper. I think mom's going to make the Sephardic version next time.
