I created this one night when I had some turkey smoked sausage to use for dinner and wanted to do something creamy and comforting. I think it's important to use the turkey sausage as it is so much less grease. The regular can get very oily, so if you plan on using that, pre-cook it in a pan and drain on paper towels before you add to the sauce.
After trying another recipe for this from here on Zaar and finding it very bland I re-did it and this is the result. Got inspiration from Shaye and Taste of Home magazine. This is a good, low carb, low fat meal with a ton of flavor. Very pretty when sliced too.
I had to make something for a luncheon at work. I needed to feed a crowd and I was sooo busy that week that I needed something easy. So here it is. I did this in two days only because I didn't have enough time in one day. It is easy and quite delicious. This got great raves! It's a good party dish. Measurements might be a tad off. I'm the type of cook that just throws in.
Healthy Shepherd's Pie made with Chicken or Turkey. I received an email this morning on our food service professionals board (www.RestaurantBeast.com ) requesting a recipe for something on the healthier side for St. Patrick's Day and thought I'd share here. Ground turkey and ground chicken actually make a GREAT Healthy Shepherd's Pie.
This recipe is the most requested recipe in our household. It is the result of many attempts to get the right combination of seasonings for turkey instead of hamburger meatballs that still have that Swedish meatball taste. We much prefer the taste to the original hamburger recipe.
This a great dish for a buffet or potluck supper because it can be served at room temperature. The leftover turkey loaf and cranberry make great sandwiches. You can sub turkey gravy, just add more seasoning.
Being so close to Canadian Thanksgiving, I thought this recipe might be handy. It is traditional in our family and served quite thick to pour over mashed potatoes. Left over gravy can be used up in a turkey casserole. We usually make a turkey shepherd's pie which can be frozen and add the mashed potatoes when defrosted and cooked.
