Sweet potato is one of those versatile starches you can whip up for both savory meals—think sweet potato bean chili—and saccharine treats, like a sweet potato cake. It’s also a relevantly popular ingredient to work with for warm, comforting dishes like this Sheperd’s pie. Turkey and sweet potato combine to capture that perfect balance between sweet and salty in this pie, with turkey lending the pie its tender flavor and sweet potato rounding it off with starch-rich comfort.
You know “pop tarts” to popularly contain dreamy, sugary fillings—blueberry, chocolate, you name it. Now you can have them with pulled pork sandwiched inside.

It should be noted that these hand pies keep well, too.
Pie is comforting—and we mean, comforting. Which is exactly what this beef pot pie is.
