1 tbsp (15 mL) Olive oil
2 tbsp (30 mL) Butter
1 Onion, finely diced
2 Cloves garlic, minced
1 Carrot, grated
1 Rib celery, finely diced
2 cups (500 mL) Chopped mushrooms
1 lb (454 g) Maple Leaf Prime® Extra Lean Ground Turkey
1 tbsp (15 mL) Chopped fresh thyme
1 tbsp (15 mL) Chopped fresh sage
2 tbsp (30 mL) Flour
1-1 ½ cups (250-375 mL) Chicken broth
Salt and pepper
2 tsp (10 mL) Worcestershire sauce
2 cups (500 mL) Frozen peas
4-5 Potatoes, peeled and quartered
1 cup (250 mL) Milk or cream
1/2 cup (125 mL) Butter, divided
Salt to taste
2 tbsp (30 mL) Chopped fresh chives


HEAT oil and butter in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, carrot, celery and mushrooms; sauté 2-3 minutes. Add turkey and cook, breaking up with the back of a wooden spoon or a whisk, for 8-10 minutes or until turkey is golden brown. Stir in thyme and sage. Sprinkle mixture with flour. Cook, stirring for 1-2 minutes. Whisk in chicken broth, reduce heat to low and cook, stirring until mixture thickens, about 3-5 minutes. Spoon mixture into a 10 cup (2.5 L) casserole dish. Spread peas evenly over top of meat mixture. MASHED POTATOES: COOK potatoes in a large pot of boiling, salted water until fork tender. Drain and return to the pot. BRING milk and ¼ cup (60 mL) butter to a simmer in a small pot. Pour mixture over potatoes. Mash potatoes using an electric hand mixer until fluffy. Season with salt and stir in chives. PREHEAT oven to 375°F (190°C). SPOON mashed potatoes over top of peas to cover. Melt remaining butter and drizzle over potatoes. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top and heated through.
