Try It Tuesday

When I was younger, I used to think things like meatloaf, chicken pot pie, and the like were disgusting and should never be made. Now? I LURVES them! So when I came across a Shepherd’s Pie freezer meal recipe, I was skeptical yet hopeful. I decided to whip it up and see what happened!

Here’s what I used:

1 lb. ground turkey

1 cup beef broth

2 Tbsp. cornstarch (not pictured–whoops!)

1 can of corn, peas, or your favorite mixed veggies.

1- 1½ cups shredded cheddar cheese (I used 2%)

2-3  cups potatoes- instant or homemade recipe.

 

First, brown the turkey until its cooked thoroughly. Drain the grease, but leave about 1 tbsp in the pan. (I also added some salt, pepper, and onion powder at this stage)

After that, stir in the beef broth and cornstarch. (Be sure to mix well, creating a light gravy.)

Then, drain the can of vegetables and add it to the pan. Then, stir and cook the mixture until the veggies are heated throughout.

In freezer-to-oven-safe dish, pour in the meat and veggie mixture, and top with your mashed potatoes.

Finally, cover with shredded cheese.

If you’re freezing your pie, cover it with plastic wrap and aluminum foil to create a tight seal.Then, write cooking directions on the aluminum foil with a Sharpie.

Whether you’re popping it in the oven right away or after its frozen, cooking instructions are the same: place in pre-heated to 375°  and cook for about 45 minutes or until the cheese is melted, bubbling and the dish is heated all the way through.

Y’all, this dish was AH-MAY-ZING! I honestly wasn’t sure if I’d like it but it was SO good! Huff the Hubs LURVED it! I was going to take a pic of the finished product, but it was so tasty, I completely forgot! So here’s a pic of my empty plate:
