Recipe by HisPixie

Turkey Devonshires were invented in Pittsburgh, my hometown. I make my husband's in a pie plate and in a smaller ovenproof bowl for me. The tomato is my husband's addition to this recipe. I don't always have time to cool the sauce completely and it still works. Cooking time includes cooling time for sauce.
