The Shepherd's Turkey Pie

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

I adapted this recipe from one my husband used to make with ground beef. I prefer ground turkey. This pie slices easily. Serve it with a salad and bread.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl mix the ground turkey, onion, celery, garlic, seasonings, soda cracker crumbs and egg.
  3. Pat the turkey mixture into a 9-inch microwave-safe pie dish.
  4. Cook on high for 7 minutes, or until just done.
  5. Microwave cook time may be more or less for your microwave, so watch carefully.
  6. "Frost" with mashed potatoes.
  7. Sprinkle with grated cheese.
  8. Bake until the pie is heated through and the cheese is melted.
  9. About 20 minutes.

I am resubmitting a new review because the recipe has been corrected. I have re-made this recipe after the corrections were made and would like to give it a higher rating since it came out much better with the corrections. I think this version of Shepherd's pie is much leaner version than the original recipe, which is just soooo full of fat. What I really liked about this recipe is you get all of the flavor for much less fat and cholesterol. I used 95% lean ground turkey. Also, I used mashed potatos from real potatos, not the boxed powdered potatos. Delish and lean! Thank you for sharing Dustbunni!!!!!
