Turkey Layer

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 lb ground turkey
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Mashed Potato Layer

  • 3 large russett potatoes
  • 4 tablespoon butter
  • 2/3 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Corn and Cheese Layers

  • 15 ounces canned corn
  • 8 ounces cheddar cheese
  • 4-5 green onions diced


  • To make Turkey Shepherd's Pie, pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Wash and cut potatoes into bite sized pieces and add them to a large pot of salted water.  Cover pot and bring potatoes to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes. 
  • Drain potatoes and return them to the pot.  Add milk, salt and butter and mash potatoes to a creamy consistency. Set aside.
  • While potatoes are cooking, add olive oil to large skillet and brown your turkey over medium-high heat until no longer pink. Drain grease and set turkey aside.  To your skillet add 2 tablespoons of butter and once melted, whisk in flour.
  • Cook for 1 minute and then whisk in milk, spices and chicken stock and bring to a low boil.  Add turkey back into the skillet and stir to combine.
  • Transfer turkey to the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking pan and smooth out until it is an even layer.  Add corn on top of that layer and smooth until even.  Drop large dollops of mashed potatoes over the corn and gently smooth them together with the back of a spoon to create an even layer over the corn and then evenly cover the mashed potatoes with shredded cheese and green onions.  Bake for 20 -25 minutes.  Remove from oven and serve immediately.
