  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small white onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 lbs 93/7 lean ground turkey
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp ground oregano

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Fill a large stockpot with water. Add potatoes, cover & boil 12-15 minutes or until fork-tender. Drain & set aside to cool. 
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, add oil & onion. Sauté 2-3 minutes, or until onions are soft. Add turkey, garlic powder & oregano. Cook 5-7 minutes, crumbling meat, stirring occasionally until meat is cooked through. Stir in mixed vegetables. Mix well. 
  3. Add milk to stockpot & whip potatoes until fluffy. 
  4. Lightly coat a large casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray. Spread turkey & vegetable mixture on bottom. Carefully scoop & spread potato mixture on top of turkey. Top with cheese & bake 10-15 minutes. 
  5. Let cool 10 minutes & serve.
