Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time45 mins
Total Time1 hr
Servings: 4 to 6


  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups turkey meat white or dark, chopped in small pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups crushed tomatoes canned
  • fresh basil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 green bell pepper chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp Frank's hot sauce optional
  • 1/2 to 1 cup cup of mozzarella cheese shredded


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a skillet, melt the butter and add the chopped onion, green bell pepper and garlic. Cook until onion is tender and translucent. Add turkey, tomatoes, hot sauce if using and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes and throw in the chopped basil.
  • Grab a square baking dish, I used 8x8 inches and add the turkey mixture and level out. Distribute the mashed potatoes over the turkey so that it's even. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.
  • Bake for 30 minutes until cheese melts and it's golden and bubbly.
  • Garnish with parsley if preferred.
