Sweet Potato, Apple and Turkey Bake

YIELD: 6 servings / PREP TIME: 30 minutes / BAKE TIME: 30-35 minutes / Print Recipe


Not only does this casserole have an impressive nutritional profile with vitamins, minerals, protein and fibre, but it provides energy to keep you feeling satisfied for longer. Enjoy this dish for supper with a spinach salad sprinkled with sunflower seeds. Then the next day at lunch, simply reheat it (or have the casserole cold!) and serve alongside a chopped kale salad or sliced cucumbers and tomatoes. For a completely new lunch, just heat and serve the casserole as a topping for a baked potato or spread a few scoops over a tortilla to make a trouble-free wrap when you’re short on time.

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Lightly coat an 8-inch x 8-inch (20 cm x 20 cm) baking pan with cooking spray.

In a non-stick skillet over medium heat, cook turkey, stirring occasionally to break up into small chunks, until cooked through and no longer pink, 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside.

In a large saucepan, bring 2 cups (500 mL) broth and ¼ cup (60 mL) Rogers Porridge Oats & Healthy Grains to a boil. Stir in onion. Reduce heat; simmer gently for 1 minute. Stir in turnip; cover and simmer for 4 minutes. Stir in sweet potato and apples; cover and cook until vegetables and apples are fork-tender, 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add cooked turkey and stir. If necessary, add additional broth to keep mixture from sticking to the bottom of the pan. When cooked, mixture should be stew-like in consistency.

Remove from heat. Stir in thyme, sage, salt, pepper, and sour cream until blended. Spoon mixture into the prepared baking dish.


In a small bowl, combine Rogers Porridge Oats & Healthy Grains, Rogers Unbleached All-Purpose Flour, Parmesan cheese, and melted butter. If using dried parsley, add it also, then stir to mix well and form a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle crumbs evenly over casserole.

Bake until lightly browned and bubbling around the edges, 30 to 35 minutes.

If using fresh parsley, sprinkle it over casserole before serving.
