      This was excellent, and my husband and I both loved it even though I had to make changes due to my current dietary restrictions (replaced buttermilk with coconut milk, and omitted butter, olive oil, and curry powder). A delicious, fairly simple, and wonderfully flexible recipe, that I look forward to making the "original" way very soon.

      the mashed sweet potato topping is AWESOME. I did change the honey to 1/4 cup, which made them come out a little sweeter, but, it was a great contrast. The filling needed more flavor - i did add carrots and celery along with the peas, but, I think the ground turkey itself needed some more spices for flavor. I did put a layer of stuffing between the pot pie and the sweet potato topping - that was a wonderful addition.

      I thought this was good but missing something. It was better to me once I added some more salt and pepper, but my husband wasn't thrilled about it. I did leave out the peas as I noticed at the last minute I was out. I added carrots. Next time I might try changing the seasonings to chili powder and cumin instead of curry and add some extra garlic. I think the mashed sweet potatoes on top were the best part of this pie.
