What is comfort food? You may also ask what's "good music" or a "pretty painting." It depends on the individual, a subjective standard. Saying all that, objectively, this meal is total comfort food. Creamy mashed potatoes, moist meatballs, and a rich, buttery mushroom sauce to blanket it all? We've already got our slippers and jammies on. Tip: To peel the carrot with less effort, lay it down on your cutting board and peel one half, rolling it as you peel. (Be sure to peel in a motion away from you!)
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

Customize It Instructions
If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as turkey in Steps 3, 4, and 5, searing “meatballs” on two sides, 2-3 minutes, and then cooking until heated through, 4-5 minutes.
If using ground beef, follow same instructions as turkey in Steps 3, 4, and 5, searing “meatballs” on two sides, 2-3 minutes, and then cooking until beef reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-5 minutes.
If using ground pork, follow same instructions as turkey in Steps 3, 4, and 5, searing “meatballs” on two sides, 2-3 minutes, and then cooking until pork reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-5 minutes.
Roast the Carrot
Peel, trim, and cut carrot on an angle into ¼" slices.
Place carrot on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 tsp. olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until tender, 15-18 minutes.
While carrot roasts, make mashed potatoes.
Make the Mashed Potatoes
Cut potatoes into large evenly-sized chunks.
Bring a medium pot with potato chunks covered by water to a boil. Cook until fork-tender, 14-18 minutes.
Reserve ½ cup potato cooking water. Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot.
Add sour cream, 2 Tbsp. potato cooking water, and garlic salt. Mash until smooth. If too thick, add remaining potato cooking water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Cover and set aside.
While potatoes boil, prepare mushrooms and form meatballs.
Prepare Mushrooms and Form Meatballs
Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices.
In a mixing bowl, add ground turkey, ricotta, panko, and ¼ tsp. salt and mix until completely combined.
Form turkey mixture into eight equally-sized meatballs.
Start the Meatballs
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.
Add meatballs to hot pan and cook until browned on two “sides”, 2-3 minutes per side.
Add mushrooms. Don't worry if pan is crowded; mushrooms will cook down. Cover, and reduce heat to medium. Stir occasionally until mushrooms soften, 4-6 minutes.
Finish Meatballs and Finish Dish
Add 2 Tbsp. water and chicken demi-glace to hot pan. Cover, and cook until meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 4-5 minutes.
Remove from burner and gently stir in butter.
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping meatballs and mashed potatoes with sauce. Bon appétit!
