Turkey Shepherd's Pie
I’m always looking for a new way to rework an old recipe.  So, how do you rework Shepherd’s Pie?  What about using sweet potatoes?  I had to rethink how that would look.  Sweet potatoes always make me think of Thanksgiving, so I decided to use ground turkey in place of hamburger.  Then I  thought the turkey needs to have a sweeter element to combine with the sweetness of the sweet potato.  So, I added peas and carrots instead of creamed corn.  Guess what?  This is now our new favorite.  Anyway, here’s the delicious result.

Steps

1
Done

Peel and cut up the sweet potatoes and place in a dutch oven filled with water.

*Alternately you can do this in your Instant Pot by pouring 1 cup water in the liner. Put in the rack with the sweet potatoes on top and manual for 18 minutes.

2
Done

Boil sweet potatoes in salted water until fork tender (about 20 minutes).

3
Done

While the potatoes are boiling, brown--well, turkey doesn't really turn brown, it's more like gray--the turkey with the onion until all the pinkness is gone from the meat and the onions are translucent.

4
Done

Add the poultry seasoning, sage and salt and pepper as they cook.

5
Done

After the turkey is finished cooking, add the peas and carrots and let them simmer until the potatoes are done.

6
Done

Drain the potatoes in a colander.

7
Done

Put half the stick of butter in the pot that the potatoes were in and add the potatoes on top.

8
Done

Stir with a fork breaking up the potatoes as you go and the butter melts.

9
Done

Add 1/4 cup pineapple to the meat and the rest to the sweet potatoes. Stir in the pineapple with the fork.

10
Done

Pour the sweet potatoes on top of the turkey mixture.

11
Done

Cut the rest of the butter and place on top.

12
Done

Bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.

13
Done

Let rest 10 minutes and serve.
