Tips for making Turkey shepherd’s pie
- You can substitute whatever veggies you have on hand, green beans are also a great choice.
- This recipe serves 6 but can easily be cut in half.
- I use a 12 inch cast iron skillet but this can also be baked in a 9×13 baking dish.
- Be sure to warm your mashed potatoes up first for easy spreading.
- You can sprinkle a little of your favorite cheese on top before baking.
- Don’t have any leftover turkey? Then try my Brined Garlic Roasted Turkey Breasts.
- Need more garlic mashed potatoes? Or need to make some extra turkey gravy?
- Place your skillet or baking dish on a baking sheet to prevent any bubbling over the top and onto the oven.
