Servings: 4 people
- 1 13 x 9 baking pan
- 1 Medium nonstick skillet
Meat and Vegetable Filling:
- 1 Tbsp canola oil (any vegetable oil will do)
- 1 lb ground turkey
- 2 cups frozen Mirepoix vegetables (thawed)
- 2 Tbsp unbleached all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup heated water (in microwave safe measuring cup/bowl) +
- 1 tsp chicken Bouillon Powder (dissolved in water)
- 1 Tbsp soy sauce (we used no salt; so didn't care for low-sodium - but normally what we use)
- 2 - 3 dashes Tabasco sauce (or any hot sauce you may have on hand)
- 2 Tbsp ketchup
- 1 Tbsp Mrs. Dash Original seasoning
- ¼ tsp Mrs. Dash Extra Spicy seasoning
- ¼ tsp organic turmeric
- ⅛ tsp Poultry Seasoning
- ¼ tsp paprika
- ⅛ tsp allspice
- ⅛ tsp sage
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 pkgs instant mashed potatoes (cooked per package directions)
- ⅓ cup shredded cheese (any blend works; we used Mexican blend)
- Preheat the oven to 375°F.
- Prepare your instant mashed potatoes (per the package's instructions) and set aside to let slightly cool. OR you can use refrigerated mashed potatoes (just easier to spread if warm).
- Over medium-high heat (we set the marker between 5 and 6), in the skillet, add the oil until hot and brown the ground turkey.
- Add the mirepoix mix and sauté the vegetables in the remaining oil, along with the turkey, until just translucent.
- Stir in the flour and seasoning mix, cook for about a minute, and stir to thicken.
- Add all of your sauce reduction ingredients and continue stirring until mixture begins to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 5 minutes.
- Spread the ground turkey and mirepoix mixture in an even layer on the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish. Top with the mashed potatoes and sprinkle with shredded cheese.
- Place the dish in the oven and bake for 25 minutes, until the cheese is fully melted and the sides of the dish have become a bit of a golden brown crust. Serve and Enjoy!
We ended up just baking some Sister Schubert's Dinner Rolls alongside our shepherd's pie. You can even mash it up in a bowl and just enjoy!
