Healthy Shepherd’s Pie

Standard

image

What makes this healthier than typical shepherd’s pie is the use of ground turkey & chicken broth in place of ground beef & beef broth.
Next time I make this I will probably use less rosemary because it was quite overpowering, but this was a warm, hearty, and flavorful meal that was perfect for this cold day!

Original recipe from http://www.kitchme.com

Ingredients –
2 large potatoes peeled & cut into 2 inch slices

Boil your potatoes until fork tender. Mash with sour cream & butter. Add salt & pepper to taste. Set aside

Cook your onion, carrots,  & celery in 2 tsp olive oil until tender.

Add raw ground turkey & cook until turkey is totally done.

Stir in spices & flour. Then slowly stir in broth. Bring to a boil & let simmer until broth is thick like a gravy. Stir in canned peas.

Spoon meat & veg mixture into a lightly greased 9″ deep dish pie pan.

Smooth mashed potatoes over top.

Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 30 minutes.  I had to put it on a baking sheet since it bubbled over.

I served mine with salad & rolls.
Enjoy!
