"Flockherder's pie"

A friend of mine (Thanks Laura) come up with the title.  Its Shepherd's pie but made with ground turkey.  It's a well seasoned dish.

1 pound of ground turkey, all white meat
1 cup of chopped carrots
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 tsp of Badia Complete Seasoning
1 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of onion powder
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp tumeric powder
1 cup of chicken stock

1 dry packet of turkey gravy*
1/2 cup of water

Saute onions and carrots till tender.  About 5 minutes.  Add the rest of the ingredients up till the gravy.  Stir well, breaking up the meat in tiny pieces.  Let it come to a boil and turn down to medium and keep to a simmering boil.  Let the stock evaporate and meat is cooked through.  About 15 minutes.  Add gravy and water in a small bowl, mix well. Add to meat and turn up heat stirring well.  Let it cook 5 minutes.

3 russet potatoes, peeled left whole
1/4 cup of milk
1/2 cup of shredded sharp cheddar
1 tbsp butter
Salt/ pepper to taste

Cover potatoes with water, bring to a boil and cook 30 minutes or till fork tender.  Remove, add in a bowl with rest of ingredients and blend till desired consistency.  Boiling whole will prevent them from waterlogged.

In a oven safe pan, add a layer of meat.  Then spoon the mashed potatoes on top.  Use a fork to 'scratch' grooves on top.  Bake at 400 for 30 minutes or till lightly browned.


*I had this leftover packet of turkey gravy packet that my mom left.  I was surprised that it was so tasty in this dish.
