Chef's Notes

Cook's Note:; You can use left over shredded pork or chicken, too. The crust, feta, and spices are what really make this recipe work. You can change veggies, too; try cooked carrots, white potatoes, or just about any root vegetable.


  1. I made it with turkey and substituted carrots for corn. It was delicious and flavourful. I also used smoked cheddar instead of feta. It was a hit with my husband who doesn't like turkey.
  2. I made it according to the recipe but found it bland. I added ginger ground coriander seed garlic cayenne chickpeas and tomatoes. It helped greatly.
  3. Amazing! Tasty will make again!

  6. I used pork sweet potato parsnip and carrots.
  7. Awesome dish! I had to cook mine slightly longer, but it may be because I added extra water. Also, I used the water from boiling the sweet potatoes for extra flavor. I used ground turkey and it tasted great, I wouldn't change anything.
  8. I made this using leftover lamb. In lieu of gravy mix I used the fat drippings which was about 3/4 C 1/2 C water 1 tbsp flour. I omitted feta because I didn't have it on hand. The whole family loved it.
