Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a 6-qt. electric or stove-top pressure cooker combine turkey, frozen vegetables, and thyme. Stir in gravy.

  • Lock lid in place. Set electric cooker on high pressure to cook 5 minutes. For stove-top cooker, bring up to pressure over medium-high heat; reduce heat enough to maintain steady (but not excessive) pressure. Cook 5 minutes. Remove from heat. For both models, quickly release pressure. Open lid carefully.

  • Drop mashed potatoes into eight mounds on top of hot turkey mixture. Set electric cooker on sauté setting or place stove-top cooker over medium heat and simmer, uncovered, 5 to 10 minutes or until potatoes are heated through. Sprinkle with pepper.


To make homemade mashed sweet or traditional potatoes, in a 4-qt. saucepan cook 1 1/2 lb. potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch chunks, in enough boiling water to cover 15 minutes or until fork-tender; drain. Add 1/2 cup heavy cream, 1/4 cup butter, 3/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. black pepper; mash.
