Healthy Recipes

Shepherd's Pie


▾ 2 medium russet potatoes, cut into nickel-sized cubes
▾ 1 teaspoon olive oil
▾ 1/2 cup chopped onions and carrots
▾ 1 pound lean ground turkey breast
▾ 1 tablespoon tomato paste
▾ 1 teaspoon finely chopped rosemary
▾ 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme
▾ 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
▾ 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
▾ 1/2 cup frozen peas, thawed
▾ 1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed
▾ 1 cup skim milk
▾ 1 tablespoon butter
▾ 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


1. Heat oven to 400 F. Place the pota-toes in a pot with water and bring to a boil. The potatoes will take about 20 minutes to soften.

2. While the potatoes are cooking, heat oil in a medium sauté pan over medium heat. Sauté the onions and carrots until tender. Add the beef and turkey. Break meat apart and stir frequently. When the meat is thoroughly cooked, add the tomato paste, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper and stock and cook for 10 minutes; stir in the peas and corn. Cook the mixture down until most of the stock is absorbed; place the mixture in a casserole dish.

3. When potatoes are soft, drain water and return them to the pot over medium heat. Add the milk, butter and salt. Mash potatoes to a smooth consistency and spread evenly over the top of the meat mixture and bake for 20 minutes or until slightly golden brown around the edges.

Message from Denise Roman, the new Workers Compensation Coordinator in HR

“I am excited and happy to be returning to the Orlando Health Organization. I began my career here in 1996 in Protective Services and now return in a completely different capacity. When I left Orlando in 2001 I moved to Atlanta and established a career in Environmental, Health and Safety. I have worked in several different industries including Construction, Heavy Metal Recycling and most recently in Biotech Pharmaceuticals. Within my positions I always managed Insurance and Workers Compensation for the company. It is nice to return to a familiar place, surrounded by old friends. The difference with taking on the Workers Compensation Coordinator position here is the amount of support I have from my Benefits team members, HealthChoice and the HR Business Partners”.

You may call her at 321-841-6783 should you need an alternate duty assignment or have a billing or benefit question.

You may also reach the HealthChoice Works team by calling 407-481-7200 Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
