ImprompTuesday: Shepherds Pie

Going into today’s ImprompTuesday, I knew I wanted to use the package of ground turkey that was in the fridge from Sunday night when I opted out of making Shepherd’s Pie  due to a ground meat overload!

This morning, I was thinking maybe I would make taco salads.

But then All Recipes posted their recipe of the day and it was Wasabi Mashed Potatoes.

Ohmigod that sounds so good.

Then the wheels in my noggin’ started turning.

I made an Asian-Inspired Shepherd’s Pie!

Started by cooking up the ground turkey, adding some ginger, garlic, soy sauce, and brown sugar.

Then I  made the mashed potatoes by boiling a bunch of red potatoes, draining them, then adding half and half, butter, roasted garlic, pepper, and lots of wasabi powder!

For the veggies, I just heated up some frozen edamame, diced up a carrot, and got some frozen corn.

Then layer it all together and bake it in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes.

I flipped it to broil for a few to toasty up the taters.

It was quite good! Very unique and I like it! I like that I took a sort of classic American/Irish (??!?) dish and gave it an Asian flair!

Jodus gives it a B+. I think it could have used more veggies but other than that, it was tasty! I would have also have preferred to use a low-sodium soy sauce because the turkey was a tad salty.

We ate in front of the TV, watching Saw IV!

And I sipped a Gingerale!

There will probably be peppermint bark or ice cream in my future. 😀
