Easy Shepard’s Pie

Since David is still recovering from his wisdom tooth extraction, we are still on the mend with softer foods. We bit the bullet a little bit yesterday with a hamburger, so we went back a few steps on that.  Before he got them out, I promised that I would make shepard’s pie for him at some point and today was the day.  Now, my shepard’s pie is pretty much the easiest dish ever.  I don’t measure the ingredients for this because it’s all your individual preference.  I haven’t been feeling my best this weekend (allergies/cold), so I went the easiest way possible and bought pre-made gravy and potatoes.

*We do not have good lighting in our kitchen, so the pictures came out really yellow, please bare with me and trust me that this is good!

Shepard’s Pie


  • 1 package of ground turkey
  • 3 cans of peas and carrots (or not be lazy and get fresh peas and carrots and chop as many as you desire)
  • 1 jar of turkey gravy
  • Mashed potatoes (prepare however you make yours)


  1. Brown the ground turkey
  2. Add in the peas, carrots and gravy.  If you’re using fresh peas and carrots, you need to steam them first, so they are soft.
  3. In a baking dish, add the peas, carrots, ground turkey and gravy mixture for the bottom layer
  4. Add the mashed potatoes for the top layer
  5. Bake on 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until the mashed potatoes are slightly browned and crispy.

This week is midterms week, so I’ll be spending a ton of time studying! Only two more semesters left… I think I can, I think I can.
