Ground Turkey Shephard's Pie

Submitted by: KITKAT1982

Introduction

This is a very basic recipe, which could easily be spiced up. I didn't add the tomato sauce the original recipe asked for, because I wanted a more traditional flavor.

Ingredients

    400g ground turkey
    1 cup frozen kernel corn
    1 cup frozen peas
    1 chopped onion
    1/2 cup chicken broth
    1 tsp ground thyme
    salt and pepper to taste
    2 cup of instant mashed potatoes or homemade(I used betty crocker)
    1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese

Directions

Cook onion and ground turkey in a pan until completely cooked. Add the broth, seasoning, corn and peas. Cook a couple of minutes to bring up the temperature.

Transfer to a baking dish, and dollop potatoes on top of meat mixture. Sprinkle with the parmesan cheese: bake in 350 F degree oven until cheese and potatoes are browned, about 30 minutes.

This makes about 6 portions.

    This is my FAVORITE! I absolutely LOVE Shephard's Pie, and making this healthy version was so much fun. I used fresh ingredients and added carrots--it's a very customizable recipe. And great leftovers too! My one complaint is that it takes an hour to make, but it's completely worth it! - 6/23/09

    To speed up the recipe, you could cook and brown the turkey ahead of time, and set aside in fridge, also using instant potatoes instead of having to peel and boil will speed up the process a little. Hope this helps. As a family, we always batch cook the pies and freeze them in foil tins.
