Directions Checklist

Step 1Preheat the stove to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Step 2Pierce the yam a few times with a fork and enclose by aluminum foil. Spot on a heating sheet.

Step 3Roast in the preheated stove until yam is fork-delicate, 70 to an hour and a half. Eliminate from the broiler and let cool enough to deal with, 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 4Reduce broiler temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Daintily oil a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate and spot on a rimmed preparing sheet to forestall rising over.

Step 5Peel skin off the yam and spot tissue into a huge bowl. Include margarine, milk, salt, pepper, sage, and nutmeg. Beat utilizing an electric blender until fixings are consolidated. Blend in cheddar tenderly. Put in a safe spot.

Step 6Heat vegetable oil in a Dutch stove over medium-high warmth. Include mushrooms, onion, carrots, celery, and garlic. Sprinkle with salt. Cook until vegetables have mollified, 5 to 7 minutes. Include venison, thyme, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, and sage. Mix to consolidate, separating any enormous bits of venison. Cook until venison is not, at this point pink, 5 to 7 minutes.

Step 7Stir flour into the pot and cook for 1 moment. Pour in white wine and mix to extricate any sautéed bits from the lower part of the dish. Cook until wine has decreased marginally, 2 to 3 minutes. Mix in stock. Permit blend to go to a stew; keep on cooking until filling has thickened, 5 to 10 minutes. Mix in peas. Taste and modify salt and pepper as important. Eliminate from warmth and let cool marginally.

Step 8Pour filling into the readied pie plate. Top with yam blend and spread delicately over the top, covering the majority of the filling.

Step 9Bake in the preheated broiler until top is set and filling is rising, around 30 minutes. Permit to cool marginally before serving.
