salisbury steak w/ creamy mushroom gravy and mashed taters.. skinny style..

when I was growing up we always had homemade dinners.. usually 5 nights a week my mom made dinner {until i turned 16 then i started helping with the cooking if you've ever read the about me tab up top you know all about that *smile*} anyway i saw this recipe skinny taste salisbury steak and it reminded me of those occasions, usually one weekends when a baby sitter watched us, that my brother and i got to have t.v. dinners... ohh those awesome frozen meals with the desert built right in and either mac n cheese or mashed taters. i loved them like really loved them.. not that i didn't love my mom's cooking.. i just didn't appreciate it i suppose and didn't understand why we couldn't have t.v. dinners all the time.. sorry mom *smile* now i appreciate you.. this dish filled that craving for a childhood favorite without the all the calories, fat and sodium of a frozen meal..
i made them with ground turkey and used my iron skillet to get them nice and browned..

i browned some onions {i had to use purple i was out of white/brown}, mushrooms, chicken broth and low fat half n half which made this wonderful cream sauce..

4-5 mediumish yukon gold potatoes, cubed {peeled if you like but i never peel mine}
3/4 cup non fat 1/2 and 1/2
1 tblsp. light butter {more if needed}
salt and pepper
fill a large pot 3/4 of the way up with water {you basically want the water to cover the potatoes}.. salt really good.. bring to a boil and cook until potatoes are fork tender.. about 20 minutes {might not take that long depending on how small you cube them so start checking around 10 minutes} when done drain potatoes and add back the pot.. mash with your potato masher until all of them are mashed then add your 1/2 and 1/2, butter, salt and pepper.. mash until smooth.. check for seasoning and consistency.. you might need to add a little more 1/2 and 1/2, butter, salt or pepper.. serve immediately..
enjoy and get cook'n!!
