Seasoned meat and vegetables are nestled under creamy mashed potatoes and then baked to form a sensational, savory pie. 5 POINTS per serving.
- 2 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces (es)
- 1⁄4 cup nonfat sour cream
- 1 tablespoon reduced-calorie margarine
- 1⁄8 teaspoon table salt
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 cup onion (chopped)
- 2 medium carrots (diced)
- 2 medium celery ribs, diced
- 1 lb uncooked ground turkey breast
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1⁄2 teaspoon table salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 cups canned chicken broth or 2 cups beef broth
- Preheat oven to 400ºF.
- Place potatoes in a large saucepan and pour in enough water to cover potatoes. Set pan over high heat and bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and simmer 10 minutes, until potatoes are fork-tender. Drain potatoes, transfer to a large bowl and add sour cream and margarine; mash until smooth, season to taste with salt and set aside.
- Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrots and celery; cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add turkey and cook until browned, breaking up the meat as it cooks, about 5 minutes. Add flour, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper; stir to coat. Add broth and bring to a simmer; simmer until mixture thickens, about 3 minutes.
- Transfer turkey mixture to a 9-inch, deep-dish pie plate. Spread mashed potatoes over top and using the back of a spoon, make decorative swirls over the top. Bake until potatoes are golden, about 30 minutes. Slice into 6 pieces and serve.
This did not taste like a WW recipe at ALL! My family (including young kiddos) loved it! I didn't have the rosemary alone so I used an italian blend seasoning (that had both rosemary and thyme in it.) I also used beef broth and a little skim milk added to the potatoes. I used 5 small potatoes instead of the two large! I will be making this all the time! THANK YOU!
Made this for a weight watchers potluck at work...It was a hit! This tastes just like "non-weight watchers approved" Sheper's pie. We really enjoyed this dish. Taste is not compromised at all with the healthier subsitutions. Thanks for posting!
Note: I just calculated the Points Plus for this recipe and it is 7...but well worth it!
