    Top Banana's Note:

    Healthy Shepherd's Pie made with Chicken or Turkey. I received an email this morning on our food service professionals board ( ) 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.

      I doubled the recipe (minus onions) for 3 adults & a toddler, it had just enough for 2 of us to go back for leftovers. Everyone asked me to make it again, only with a little worcestershire next time. I do kind of question the "healthy" label glancing at the nutritional info, but I suppose with beef it would have been much fattier.

      Umm ... 49 grams of fat and they're calling this "Healthy" Sheppard's Pie? Good Lord, I'd hate to see the unhealthy version.

      We enjoyed this very much. I used ground chicken. The pinches and dashes made for a good mix and the ability to use more of the ones we like best. Only one I missed was the fennel seed, had none. i will certainly make this again and probably fiddle with the spices. Thanks for sharing a good one.
