Prep time: 25 mins

Cook time: 42 min

Servings: 6


2 large potato, peeled and cut into 2-inch pieces

1⁄4 cup non-fat sour cream

1 tbsp reduced-calorie margarine

1⁄8 tsp table salt

2 tsp olive oil

1 cup onion, chopped

2 medium carrot, diced

2 medium ribs celery, diced

1 lb uncooked ground turkey breast

3 tbsp all-purpose flour

1 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped, or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary

1 tsp dried thyme

1⁄2 tsp salt

1⁄4 tsp black pepper

2 cup 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.
