Shepard’s Pie

I am always looking for easy cold weather recipes that will also leave our family with a ton of left overs.  This recipe is easy to do and you can modify it several ways. So have fun with it! Cut the recipe in half if you have a small family or a family that doesn’t eat like mine. :).


2 lb ground turkey (or ground beef)

1 tbsp of bacon fat

1 onion diced

1 tbsp pepper

Sea salt to taste

1 tsp nutmeg (optional)

1 tsp paprika

1/2 tbsp basil

1 tsp oregano

2 cups chopped mushroom

3-4 gloves garlic chopped


4 large yellow sweet potatoes peeled (or use cauliflower mash)

2 tbsp coconut butter

1/4 c almond milk

1-2 tsp pepper

Sea salt to taste

Start by boiling the peeled sweet potatoes. In a large sauce pan use bacon fat to saute the diced onion then add garlic. Cook until onion is translucent then add ground turkey and spices. Cook the turkey half way and then Add mushrooms and salt and add more pepper if needed. Taste the meat mixture to make sure it has a rich flavor. Drain some of the liquid from the meat mixture and pour into a 10″x12″ baking dish. Mash the sweet potatoes with the coconut butter and almond milk. Add pepper and salt and whip with a whisk. Spoon the mixture over the meat mixture and bake for 20-25 minutes at 400 degrees.  Serve with a salad or your favorite vegetable. This is a very large meal!
