Meal: Smoked Turkey Shepherd’s Pie

Back Story: Easter weekend, Uncle Jon was over with his new smoker. After 14 sleepless hours of heat-curve obsession, Uncle Jon’s epic turkey-sitting session ended with a SUPER-delicious meal. Most times, smoking seems like a “long walk”, but this was so worth it. This turkey had a gentle smokiness and was very juicy. Tonight, with our leftovers (cubed smoked turkey meat, beans/carrots, and mashers), Dan whipped together a über tasty Shepherd’s pie.

Method: Sauté onion, celery, thinly sliced mushroom until tender, then add cubed turkey and veggies. Dust with GF flour, stir to combine, then add two cups of chicken broth. Once thickened and warm, add half cup of sour cream. Transfer to a baking dish and cover with mashers the dust with smoked paprika. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes then broil for 5 minutes or until brown.
