Turkey Shepherd's Pie with Two-Potato Topping

This recipe, from Jimmy Bradley of the Red Cat in New York City, makes a large pie, but you can also prepare the dish in individual 1 1/2-cup ramekins. Check them for doneness after 20 minutes.

  1. 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, 1 tablespoon melted
  2. 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  3. 1 medium celery rib, finely chopped
  4. 1 medium carrot, finely chopped
  5. 4 cups diced turkey meat
  6. 1 cup turkey gravy
  7. 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
  8. 2 teaspoons finely chopped sage
  9. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  10. 2 cups mashed potatoes
  11. 1 cup mashed sweet potatoes
  12. 2 tablespoons minced chives
  13. 1 large egg, beaten
  1. Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet. Add the onion, celery and carrot and cook over low heat until softened, about 12 minutes. Add the turkey and cook, stirring, until heated through. Add the gravy and cook until bubbling. Remove from the heat, stir in the parsley and sage and season with salt and pepper. Transfer the filling to a 9-by-12-inch baking dish and let cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°. In a bowl, blend the mashed white and sweet potatoes with the chives. Season the mashed potatoes with salt and pepper and beat in the egg. Spread the potatoes over the filling and brush the top with the melted butter. Bake in the upper third of the oven for about 30 minutes, or until the topping is lightly browned and the filling is bubbling. Let the pie stand for about 10 minutes before serving.

Suggested Pairing

A smooth, generous Chardonnay will echo the texture of the creamy gravy and the soft mashed potato topping in this comforting baked pie. Look for an inexpensive, fruity wine from South Eastern Australia.
