Number of Servings: 8


    1.5 lbs ground turkey
    1 medium onion, chopped (about 1 cup/110g)
    3 garlic cloves, chopped or grated
    1 cup chopped carrots (about 130g)
    1 cup chopped bell peppers (about 130g)
    1 cup sliced mushrooms (3oz/85g)
    1 cup frozen corn
    2 lbs potatoes (about 5)
    1/2 cup milk
    1 egg
    1 Tbsp butter
    2 tsp poultry seasoning
    1 Tbsp salt, divided
    ground pepper to taste
    1.5 cup chicken broth
    2 Tbsp flour


Peel potatoes and cut into smaller pieces, add to a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, add 1 tsp salt and cook until fork tender. Drain and add milk, butter, 1 tsp salt and pepper to taste. Mash to desired consistency.

While potatoes are cooking, cook ground turkey in a non-stick pan over medium high heat until cooked through, about 5-10 minutes. Add all vegetables except mushrooms, cook for 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook for 2-3 minutes more. Add corn. Sprinkle flour, 1 tsp salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning over meat mixture and stir to combine, 1-2 minutes. Add chicken broth, bring to a boil, and let simmer 5 minutes until sauce thickens.

Once meat mixture is done and potatoes have cooled slightly, beat egg lightly and stir into potatoes. Pour meat mixture into a casserole dish and spread potatoes over top. Place in preheated broiler for 5-10 minutes until potatoes are browned on top (the egg will help this process).

Makes 8 servings.
