Ingredients 

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • ¾ cup diced carrots
  • ½ cup frozen peas
  • 1 ½ cups shredded or diced turkey, I boiled a 1-pound turkey breast
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 sprigs thyme leaves
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 ⅔ cup mashed potatoes , (I boiled 2 small red potatoes then mashed them with 1/4 cup milk and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease two 16-ounce ovensafe ramekins and set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is heated, add garlic clove, diced onion and carrots. Cook until softened and fragrant, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Add in the peas and turkey. Stir to combine. Sprinkle flour over mixture and stir to incorporate. Then stir in the tomato paste.
  • Gently add the chicken stock and Worcestershire sauce. Stir and let mixture thicken, about 5 minutes. Stir in the thyme leaves, then season with salt and pepper. Remove mixture from heat.
  • Divide the mixture evenly amongst the ramekins, then divide the mashed potatoes evenly and spread on top of the mixture.
  • Place ramekins on a baking sheet for easier transfer to and from the oven. Place baking sheet in the oven on the middle rack and bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Serve and enjoy.

Hey Julie!! Id like to ask for that ceramic skillet you got for Christmas! Can you tell me more about it:) I was trying to find it on QVC but can't remember the name of who made it! Thanks!

Hi Lisa! The ceramic skillet I got was this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Y2QVDXQ/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00Y2QVDXQ&linkCode=as2&tag=tabfortwo-20&linkId=4AQ7VQKAP52UAQSL (affiliate link) but the manufacturer that makes her pans is a company called Greenpan but I didn't buy from them because most their skillets don't have lids and the Trisha one had one and that's a major for me. Hope this helps!
