Fall Shepherd's Pie

A twist on a classic shepherd's pie that uses the type of flavors people crave in the autumn, like ground turkey, cranberry and sweet potato.

Ingredients

2
pounds ground turkey
3
ribs celery
1
small onion
2
carrots
2
tablespoons butter
2
tablespoons flour
1
box chicken stock
1
bag frozen corn
1
bag cranberries
4
sweet potatoes
1
russet potato
1
pinch cinnamon
1
pinch allspice
1
cup milk
1/2
stick butter

Directions

  • 1 Get the potatoes in the oven first and let them roast at 350°F until tender.
  • 2 Meanwhile, let's start with the turkey layer. Brown the meat, then remove it from the pan. Cook the celery, onions, and carrots next. Add the 2 tablespoons butter, then whisk in the flour and let it cook for a few minutes, stirring constantly. Add the cooked meat back into the pan, then add the stock and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • 3 When the potatoes are tender, mash them in a bowl with the half stick of butter and milk. Mix in the cinnamon and allspice.
  • 4 Add the turkey mixture to the bottom of a casserole dish. Next, mix together the corn and cranberries and add them on top of the turkey. Finally, add the mashed sweet potatoes to the top and bake at 350°F for about a half hour.
  • 5 When things are getting bubbly and the top is starting to brown, pull it out of the oven. Allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving.

Fall Shepherd's Pie

As prepared by The Food in my Beard,

Many people tell me how much they love a post-Thanksgiving casserole made from all the leftovers.


I have personally never done this, but I understand why it would be delicious. What I don’t understand however, is: Why can you only have this once a year?

These flavors are around all season! This twist on a shepherd's pie hits a lot of the Thanksgiving flavors and comes together in just about an hour. No turkey roasting needed!

Sweet and regular potatoes

Mostly sweet potato, with some regular potato just to add a little starch and make it less squashy (as sweet potato can sometimes get).

Bottom layer of turkey and gravy

Middle layer is corn and cranberry, and top is the potato. Yum.

Serving up Fall Shepherd's Pie

Let it sit for 10 minutes after it comes out of the oven – it won’t fall apart as you cut it into squares.

All my roommates loved this dish, and thought it was perfect for a chilly fall night. We had it on a Sunday and it really capped off the weekend and got everyone ready for the week ahead!
