  • Add turkey, chopped garlic, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper to the skillet. Cook and crumble until the turkey is fully cooked, about 12 minutes.
  • Drain any excess liquid from the skillet, and transfer the mixture to a casserole dish sprayed with nonstick spray. Evenly top with gravy, followed by frozen mixed veggies. Set aside.
  • Drain the excess water from the squash and mash well.
  • Add butter and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of salt and mix thoroughly. Evenly layer the squash mixture over the mixed veggies.
  • Bake in the oven until the topping is slightly crispy, 20 to 25 minutes. Enjoy!
