Are you looking for a quick healthy dinner to make on a busy weeknight? My family loves this Skillet Turkey-Bacon Shepherds Pie. Best of all I can use my secret ingredient to speed up the cooking process: Mighty Spark Food Co. Turkey & Bacon Ground Blend. It’s the perfect flavorful substitute for beef!
Mighty Spark Food Co. products have flavors and spices added to them, it makes the preparation work very easy – it’s an easy weeknight meal that takes less than 20 minutes to make! These protein and flavor-packed fresh ground chicken or turkey products will be available at Publix – some ideas for creating a recipe could be lettuce wraps, a pasta dish, or even adding the turkey to a salad.
I also love knowing for every package someone buys, Mighty Spark Food Co. donates a meal to someone in need. “Our passion is crafting remarkable, hand-crafted meats. At Mighty Spark, we feel it’s our duty to provide nourishment to kids in need. Mighty Spark’s one-for-one giveback program is our Bite Back Hunger initiative. For every Mighty Spark item purchased, we donate a meal to those in need. Committed to helping feed hungry kids nationwide, through our network of charity partners, we sponsor meal packing events for the donated meals. Thanks to consumer and volunteers nationwide, we’ve been able to help spark a movement and provide more than 1 million meals to those in need.”
Let’s talk about how quickly this meal comes together–in less than 30 minutes dinner is on the table. I start by breaking up and browning the Mighty Spark Food Co. Turkey & Bacon Ground Blend. Then, I add in chopped mushrooms, frozen pea and carrot mix and let those cook for a few minutes. You want to preheat the oven while your cooking dinner on the stove top. Once the ground turkey is cooked thoroughly and the mushrooms are beginning brown you’ll add in mushroom gravy. Next, take cooked mashed potatoes and begin to carefully top the skillet filling all the nooks and crannies of the skillet. Lastly, a sprinkle of shredded cheddar on top and the skillet goes into the oven until the potatoes begin to turn golden brown and the cheese is bubbling.
Divide the shepherd’s pie evenly among four plates and enjoy dinner! I love how quickly this comes together with few ingredients and best of all so much flavor thanks to the Mighty Spark Food Co. Turkey & Bacon Ground Blend. It’s currently on sale at my local Publix and you can save $3 on any one Mighty Spark Food ground chicken or turkey blend. I made sure to stock up so I can have it available for quick weeknight meals. If your looking for a simple yet flavorful dinner I hope you’ll give my recipe a try for Skillet Turkey-Bacon Shepherds Pie.
