Being inordinately fond of one dish meals, casseroles and the like, I couldn't resist this one...and lightening it up just made it better!
- 2 2⁄3 cups instant potato flakes
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1 1⁄2 cups low-fat sour cream
- 1 lb ground turkey breast or 1 lb ground chicken breast
- 1 -2 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1 tablespoon dried onion
- 1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added tomato sauce
- 1 (12 ounce) can whole kernel corn (Del Monte preferred)
- 1 teaspoon salt (optional)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon oregano
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, diced
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- In a 13 X 9 baking pan, combine the potato flakes, sour cream and the first 1/2 cup of water.
- Pat the mixture firmly into the bottom of the pan.
- Brown the ground turkey in the oil.
- Add to the browned meat, the 2nd 1/2 cup water, dried onion, tomato sauce, kernel corn, salt and oregano.
- Spoon this mixture over the potato mixture that you earlier pressed into the baking pan.
- Sprinkle the diced cheese over all; bake in the preheated 350°F oven for 25-30 minute.
This did not turn out so well for me. It was very dry, had very little taste, and I had to throw the whole thing out.
It was really good, but I changed a lot of things. Instead of potato flakes I used 2 containers of Country Crock garlic mashed potatoes. I used 2 cups of cheese, fresh onions, added Worcestershire sauce, omitted the sour cream. I put the meat and veggies on the bottom, the cheese on that, and then the potatoes on that, which I sprinkled with paprika and pepper to be more like a shepards pie. The original recipe was a good place to start, though. I guess it ended up more like a shepard's pie in the end.
This is great! All I was looking for was something quick and simple to use up ground beef and I found this recipe. I knew it would be good, but it turned out to be way better than I anticipated.....the whole family agreed. I liked the tomatoey flavor. I increased the recipe to 8 servings. I used fresh chopped onion instead of dried and added a little garlic and worcestershire sauce to the meat mixture. I'm going to use this recipe often....especially when I have leftover mashed potatoes. Thanx for sharing!
