Gigi Fitzgerald from my Gourmet De-Lite series delivers lower calorie meals to her group of clients. One of the things she makes is shepherd's pie. We've had some great shepherd's pie recipes here on Mystery Lovers' Kitchen, but if you want to try one that won't wreak havoc on your diet, here you go!
1 tablespoon olive oil
1.25 lbs. ground turkey
1 cup frozen peas
1 small container of fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup ketchup
1 14.5-ounce can mushroom gravy (Campbells had only 100 calories for the whole can)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
5 medium potatoes, boiled and mashed with skim or 1/2 percent milk
First off, make your mashed potatoes. This dish is so flavorful you won't miss having butter in them (I only put butter in the mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving!)
Add frozen peas and mushrooms
Spread mashed potatoes on top.
Cook in a 350 degree oven until bubbling and slightly browned on top--approximately 30 minutes.
Enjoy free of guilt! This is something the whole family will like.
