Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
