Two Thanksgiving favorites all in one showstopping dish.

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.
