Smothered Turkey Shepherd's Pie

SERVES: 6 PREP: 45 minutes TOTAL TIME: 4.5 hours

Two hearty favorites combined!

Want to shake up your standard roast-turkey routine? Our Smothered Turkey Shepherd's Pie combines all the savory goodness of roast turkey with one of our favorite potato-topped dishes.It starts with turkey thighs seared in our Lowkey Lavender Braiser, then the turkey slow-cooks in the oven with veggies and stock for 3 hours. Then from the drippings, you make gravy (in the same pot!), top it with buttery mashed potatoes and bake to golden perfection. Trust us, this one will impress any crowd.

For the Turkey:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt, plus more to taste

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 

  • 2 teaspoons dried sage 

  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme 

  • 3-3.5 pounds turkey thighs

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil 

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 2 carrots, diced

  • 2 celery stalks, diced

  • 5 cloves garlic, sliced

  • ½  tablespoon fresh crumbled sage

  • ½  tablespoon fresh thyme 

  • 2 ½ cups low-sodium chicken stock

  • ½ cup chopped parsley

For the potato topping:

  • pounds (5-6 medium) Russet or Idaho potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese

  • 1 cup finely shredded parmigiano reggiano cheese

  • 2 ½ teaspoons kosher salt, plus more to taste

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • ½ teaspoon sweet paprika
