Love shepherd's pie, but hate all the calories that come from such a hearty and filling dish? This recipe substitutes ground turkey as a replacement for traditional ground beef. Ground turkey is lower in both fat and calories than ground beef, which is great for your waistline, but it still provides the same great taste and texture that a classic shepherd's pie is famous for!
While the ground turkey used in the recipe below provides a more health-conscious version of the classic shepherd's pie, this is still not your everyday "diet" food. Far from it. The creamy mashed potato topping, along with the gravy created by the pie filling, provides a warm, comforting feeling of home as you bite into every delicious spoonful — no need for a fork when the meal is this good! Even die-hard shepherd's pie fans will love this healthier take on a comfort classic.
