Turkey & Leek Shepherd's Pie

November/December 1996

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (73 votes)

The mashed potato-covered shepherd's pie was originally created to use up the leftovers from a festive roast. This version blends peas, leeks and carrots with diced turkey, all in a creamy herb sauce. The dish is a perfect way to create a second meal with the holiday turkey but if you like, use leftover roast chicken, duck or goose.

Delicious and easy!

I happened to have a leek handy and made this according to the recipe (with perhaps not exact measurements). It was a delicious comfort meal for the day after Thanksgiving. Light and flavorful. Perfect!

Huge hit!

I used the meat from shredded chicken thighs that I cooked with garlic in the crockpot (no leftover turkey yet), and frozen, shelled edamame instead of peas, and this turned out pretty good! My husband LOVED it, I thought it was a little bland. The potato topping is really good, and it's hard to believe that there's no butter in it, but the dish is missing something. It was better leftover, but I may try substituting a Spanish or sweet onion for the leeks next time to tweak what's missing in the flavor.

tastes great, healthy

Have made this 2x and used ground turkey both times. We have enjoyed it as much as regular shepards pie. I like the use of leeks in this recipe as opposed to using onions. Have also added mushrooms once...yummy!

Surprisingly Easy and Flavorful

I was so surprised at how easily this dish came together. It was bursting with flavor. I might go lighter on the mashed potatoes next time around, but there will absolutely be a next time around for this recipe. Delicious!
