Ingredients

1 pouch Betty Crocker* Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes (from family sized box)
1 cup (250 mL) hot water
1/2 cup (125 mL) milk
2 tbsp (25 mL) butter or margarine
2 cups (500 mL) chopped cooked turkey
1 bag (350 g) Green Giant* Frozen Mixed Vegetables
1 can (284 mL/10 FL oz) turkey gravy
1/4 tsp (1 mL) poultry seasoning

Instructions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350ºF. Spray 2-quart casserole with cooking spray; set aside. Make mashed potatoes as directed on box for 4 servings--except use 1 cup hot water, 1/2 cup milk and 2 tablespoons butter.
  • 2 In 2-quart saucepan, heat turkey, vegetables, gravy and poultry seasoning to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally. Pour turkey mixture into casserole. Spoon or pipe potatoes around edge of casserole.

Expert Tips

Health Twist : You can lighten up this casserole a bit by cutting the butter in half and using reduced-fat or fat-free gravy and fat-free (skim) milk. If you use fat-free gravy and milk and only 1 tablespoon butter, you'll cut the fat to only 9 grams per serving.

Special Touch : After spooning potatoes around edge of casserole, swirl the tops with the back of the spoon. For a fancier presentation, place potatoes in a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip and pipe them onto the casserole, then sprinkle with paprika.
