Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • 1 carrots
  • 2 rib celery
  • 0.125 oz fresh thyme
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 yellow onions

Meat / Poultry / Seafood

  • 2 cup diced cooked turkey

Oil and Spices

  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 0.5 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 0.5 tsp kosher salt

Other

  • 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 pint chicken or turkey broth
  • 4 cup cooked mashed potatoes
  • 8 oz frozen peas

Special Equipment

  • grill-proof 10" pie dish

Ingredients


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 medium carrot, finely chopped
  • 2 ribs celery, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken or turkey broth
  • 2 cups chopped cooked turkey
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cups cooked mashed potatoes

Instructions

  1. Prepare the grill for indirect cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).

  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, warm the oil. Add the onion and garlic and cook until just starting to turn golden brown, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the carrot, celery, and flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the broth and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the turkey, peas, thyme, salt, and pepper.

  3. Put the turkey mixture in a grill-proof 10-inch pie dish and top with the mashed potatoes, spreading them in an even layer. Place the pie dish on a sheet pan to catch any of the juices that might spill out.

  4. Transfer the pie dish on the sheet pan to the grill and place over indirect medium heat. Close the lid and cook until the turkey mixture is bubbling and the potatoes are heated through, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the grill and let cool for a few minutes before serving.

Good flavors but...

Recipe was good but my issue is with the title. Shepard's Pie contains lamb as the star of the dish. A Cottage Pie contains beef but this...maybe Farmer's Pie? Splitting hairs I know but maybe Turkey with Champ instead?

New way to have left over Turkey

I love to grill any way any chance I get. I make Shepherds Pie with lamb in the oven, now an alternate way to have Shepherds Pie with Turkey and another use of old friend turkey. Gas grill..was easy...thanks Randy.

Top Turkey Dish

This is a wonderful dish and very easy to prepare. If your cooker is covered in snow, just pop it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. As an extra touch, add gravy to your serving. You don't have to wait for Thanksgiving to enjoy this pie!

A Pleasant Surprise

I love Shepherds Pie and I love to grill. So, when I saw this Weber recipe, I had to try it. It was easy to prepare. I used chopped chicken thighs instead of turkey. To save time, I prepared the mashed potatoes the day before grilling. A cast iron pan was perfect for grilling - no spills. I would highly recommend this recipe.
