{turkey shepherd's pie}

i am not a food photographer.  not at all.  not one little bit.  but we were trying a new recipe last night and i knew that i wanted to take pics of it to share it with you all.  i was super excited.  lisa had this at a local family run restaurant and when she told me that she bought the stuff to recreate it, i was pumped!


what you need...

2 lbs. ground turkey
4/5 large sweet potatoes
2 cans of corn
1 jar of turkey gravy
1 small onion {or more depending on preference}

easy huh?

first you want to peel and cut up the sweet potatoes. we cut ours into little pieces because we were in a hurry but you really just need to make sure that however big or small you cut them that they are cooked through enough to mash later on.


look at this fancy flower in the middle of our potato.  cool huh?  i've never seen that before!

as the potatoes are boiling, brown ground turkey with some onions.  when this is done, add gravy and warm over low heat.

when the potatoes are done, drain them and then mash with some milk and butter.

when everything is done, you're going to start layering.  meat first, then corn and lastly potato.


we baked ours for 30 min at 350 degrees.  i bet if you brushed the top with some melted butter, it would be even prettier!

we were worried about whether or not the kids would like it.  bailey especially isn't a big sweet potato fan but they all LOVED it.  it's definitely going into our regular rotation for sure.

we just served ours with some italian bread left over from pasta the night before.  it was filling and delicious.  there are six of us and we had leftover what you see above from a 9x13 pan.

if you make it, let me know how it is!  :)
