{recipe} Weight Watchers Shepard's Pie

One of the Recipes I tried this week was a Weight Watcher's Shepard's Pie. I, of course, found the recipe on Pinterest (<< link to my personal Pinterest). I was very impressed with this dish as I had no expectations with how well it'd taste. J and I both really liked it and it even made for great leftovers in our lunches the next day. Score.

I know it doesn't look beautiful (and my photography sucks!) but it was very good! Here's the recipe:


Preheat oven to 400ºF.
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.

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.

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.

Here is the actual link to the recipe. Enjoy!!
