Sweet Potato Shepard's Pie

A classic fall recipe made with lean turkey meat, peas, seasonings, and topped with delicious mashed sweet potatoes.


1.5 lbs Sweet Potatoes peeled and chopped

½ Tsp Italian Seasoning Blend

Sea salt and pepper, to taste

The Filling: 1 Tbsp Olive Oil

1 Medium Yellow Onion diced

1½ lbs Lean Turkey Meat

2 Tbsp Tomato Paste

3-4 Garlic Cloves minced

½ Tsp Dried Oregano

1 Tbsp Smoked Paprika

1 Cup Chicken or Beef Broth

1 Cup Frozen Peas or any other veggies like corn, carrots, defrosted


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F

  2. Place the sweet potatoes in a large saucepan with just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender. About 10 minutes.

  3. Drain and mash, then season with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning blend.

  4. Heat oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Sauté the onions for 3-4 minutes, then stir in the garlic and cook for a minute or so.

  5. Add the ground meat and cook, crumbling with a wooden spoon, until the meat is cooked through.

  6. Stir in the tomato paste, oregano, paprika, salt and pepper, and broth. Simmer for a few minutes until the liquid is reduced, then stir in the peas.

  7. Spread the meat mixture into a 2-quart baking dish. Add mashed potatoes on top and spread it evenly all the way to the sides.

  8. Bake until the potatoes are just starting to brown, about 25-30 minutes. Rest, then serve and enjoy!
