Cooking For Guys: Stove Top Shepherd’s Pie
There is nothing like comfort food. That usually means something tasty but not really healthy for you. I tried for the first time last night a cooking for guys: stove top shepherd's pie. As you'll see, I didn't really think this all the way through! I used a pound of 93% lean ground turkey, a sweet onion, summer squash, instant mashed potatoes.
In a frying pan, saute the ground turkey with diced onions and summer squash (I would have used corn, peas and carrots instead if I had them on hand!)
In a sauce pan, boil one and a third cup of water, 1/3 cup of milk (I used vanilla soy milk), add some margarine and bring to a boil. Take it off the stove and whisk in 3/4 cup of the instant potato flakes.
Then mix in the mashed potatoes with the ground turkey and vegetables and add salt and pepper to taste.
