Shepherd’s Pie, it’s as easy as Pie!

I was food network and noticed at least 3 to 4 times shepherds pie and I thought to myself i would really like to try and make that. Here was my first attempt but not my last. I tried to make it simpler by making a meatloaf base using ground turkey. In my mashed potatoes I added skim milk, 2 tablespoons of Chobani plain Greek yogurt, and wedge of garlic and herb Laughing Cow Cheese (only 35 calories per wedge,) and mashed it all together with a little salt and pepper. The peas were just a bag of frozen peas and sliced carrots.

About Brian

A few years ago I had gotten really sick with a mystery infection that put me in the hospital for over a week. When I got home I wasn't much better off. I had to have foot surgery and was laid up on the sofa for awhile. In that time I watched alot of Food Network and really gained a passion for food and it's preparation, cooking for my family was something I could still do even when I wasn't feeling my best and it was a way to help myself reach a healthier goal as well. Now I find myself always looking for healthier options that still taste wonderful and with my wifes gluten allergy I have even more of a challenge of feeding everyone. Honestly ... I am loving every minute of it. Because my kitchen has become my place of Zen.


  1. How about including cooking times in your recipes? Also what are you wrapping the Shepherd’s Pie in ?

    • I do need to work on my recipe descriptions, I usually play it by ear so I don’t have specific directions to offer a lot of times. The Shepherd’s Pie was just layered into a casserole dish, nothing too fancy there. You can also cover that with foil if you want, but we didn’t this time.
