“A variant on Shepherd's Pie using ground turkey, this recipe is sort of a "Thanksgiving dinner in one dish". Feel free to substitute your personal favorite mashed potato recipe; recipes that use chicken broth in the place of milk/cream cheese/butter can make this recipe dairy-free for the lactose-intollerant or milk-allergic.”
