Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 375° F.
  • Bake the bacon for 20 minutes, or until crisp. Cool then chop.
  • Turn the oven up to 400° F.
  • Melt turkey drippings in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  • As soon as they are melted, whisk in the gluten free flour and thyme, and cook for about 1 minute, whisking constantly.
  • Gradually stir in almond milk, stirring until thick and smooth (around 10 minutes).
  • Stir in turkey and add salt, pepper and garlic, then set to the side.
  • Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish. Read this post for my preference on greasing baking pans.
  • Pour about ½ cup of the sauce in the bottom of the pan.
  • Next, spread the mashed potatoes into the baking dish, then sprinkle the chopped bacon and beans or peas on top of them.
  • Finally, pour the creamy turkey mixture over the top of the potatoes and beans/peas.
  • Bake until the dish is bubbly, which should take about 30-35 minutes.
  • After removing from the oven, let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
  • For a little extra flavor, you can sprinkle some cheddar cheese over the top if you're not dairy free.
