  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 1 cup Onion diced
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 4 ounces Mushrooms sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Flour
  • 1 cup Turkey or Chicken broth
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 2 cups Turkey chopped
  • 1/2 cup Peas & Carrots frozen
  • 5 cups Mashed Potatoes
  • 3 ounces Gruyere cheese


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Grease baking dish and set dish to the side.
  • In a large saute pan or skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat and add the onions and stir continuously until the onions are soft, about 3-5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and mushrooms, and continue cooking and stirring for 5-7 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, mix the flour and 1 tablespoon of water stirring together until it is smooth and there are no more lumps. This is called a slurry.
  • Pour the slurry into the pan with the mushrooms and onions and continue stirring until it is fully incorporated into the juices, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the broth and bring to a boil, stirring continuously until the mixture has thickened, 5-6 minutes.
  • Add the salt and pepper to the gravy and stor together.
  • Add peas, carrots, and turkey, stirring them into the mixture.
  • Transfer the mixture to the baking dish and spoon the potatoes over the mixture, completely covering it.
  • Sprinkle the Gruyere cheese on top.
  • Bake until the cheese is melted and the potatoes are crisp around the edges, 22 to 25 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
