Cook Time:


  • 2 piece(s) uncooked potato(es), peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup(s) fat free sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon(s) reduced-calorie margarine
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) table salt, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoon(s) olive oil
  • 1 cup(s) uncooked onion(s), chopped
  • 2 piece(s) uncooked carrot(s), diced
  • 2 piece(s) uncooked celery, diced
  • 1 pound(s) uncooked ground turkey breast
  • 3 tablespoon(s) all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon(s) rosemary, fresh, chopped (or 1 tsp dried)
  • 1 teaspoon(s) dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) table salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) black pepper
  • 2 cup(s) canned chicken broth, or beef broth


  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.
