2008 Thanksgiving - Turkey Sweet Potato Shepherd's Pie

What I should do with so much left-over turkey? Chris loves Turkey cranberry sandwich. But, how many sandwiches he can handle before turning into a gigantic turkey himself? I found this recipe again from watching Food Network while using the treadmill in the gym. I tried it yesterday. It was a perfect solution for the leftovers from Thanksgiving, simple and yet delicious.

Here is the basic ingredient
1. 2 pounds ground turkey or chopped leftover turkey
2. 1 onion, cut into 1-inch dice
3. 2 carrots, peeled and grated
4. 4 ribs celery, chopped
5. 2 tsp poultry seasoning
6. 2 tsp ground sage

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

To make the turkey mix - In a deep skillet heat 2 tablespoons oil over high heat. Add meat and break up with a wooden spoon, season with salt and pepper, poultry seasoning and sage. Then Add onions, carrots and celery into the turkey. Stir, and cook for 5 minutes.

While vegetables are almost done, add the left-over turkey gravy, about 2-cup.

Stir peas into meat and turn heat off.

At the meantime, make the mashed sweet potato (about 1 - 1 1/2 pound). I added a dash of salt to the sweet potato, and a 1/2 cup of margarine to mix up with the sweet potato.

Put the meat mix into a casserole pan. Top the meat with the potatoes. (Optional)Cover potatoes with cheese. Place the casserole pan in the oven at 375F for about 5-8 minutes.
