Can Turkey Shepherd's Pie be made in advance?
Absolutely! This is a great make ahead dinner recipe! Just assemble the dish as instructed and keep in the refrigerator until ready to bake (up to overnight). You can also freeze the assembled casserole before baking to enjoy at a later date. It's a great freezer meal!
Can you cook Turkey Shepherd's Pie from frozen?
Yes! It just takes a lot longer! You can thaw a frozen shepherd's pie in the refrigerator overnight, and then proceed with baking the thawed casserole as instructed per the recipe. Alternatively, to cook from frozen, cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees F for 1½ hrs. Increase oven to 425 degrees F, uncover and cook for about 20 more minutes, until golden and bubbling.
