Ingredients

uncooked potato(es)

2 large, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces

black pepper

¼ pinch

fat free sour cream

¼ cup(s)

reduced-calorie margarine

1 tbsp(s)

table salt

1 tsp(s), or to taste

olive oil

2 tsp(s)

uncooked onion(s)

1 cup(s), chopped

uncooked carrot(s)

2 medium, diced

uncooked celery

2 rib(s), medium, diced

uncooked 99% fat-free ground turkey breast

1 pound(s)

all-purpose flour

3 Tbsp

rosemary

1 tbsp(s), fresh, chopped (or 1 tsp dried)

dried thyme

1 tsp(s)

table salt

½ tsp(s)

canned chicken broth

2 cup(s), or beef broth

Instructions

  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.
