                                          • Place ground turkey and ground beef in a large stock pot. Heat over medium–high heat uncovered for 5–8 minutes. Stir often until meat is well done.
                                          • Critical Control Point: Heat to 165 °F or higher for at least 15 seconds.
                                          • Remove meat from heat. Drain beef and turkey in a colander. Return meat to heat.
                                          • Add onions. Sauté uncovered for 5–8 minutes over medium heat or until onions are translucent.
                                          • Add frozen peas and carrots. Stir well. Set aside for step 9.
                                          • Gravy: Heat broth in a medium stock pot over medium heat for 5 minutes. Bring to a rolling boil.
                                          • Combine cornstarch and cold water in a small bowl. Stir well. Set aside for step 8.
                                          • Add cornstarch mixture, thyme, pepper, onion powder, paprika, and salt to stock pot, stirring constantly. Bring to a slow boil. Remove from heat. Set aside for step 9.
                                          • Combine meat mixture and gravy in a large bowl.
                                          • Pour 1 gal (about 8 lb 5 oz) meat and gravy mixture into each steam table pan (12″ x 20″ x 2¹⁄2″). Set aside for step 13.
                                            For 50 servings, use 2 pans.
                                            For 100 servings, use 4 pans.

                                          • Pour water, milk, potato flakes, margarine, and salt in a commercial mixer (batch as needed). Using a paddle attachment, mix on low speed. Mashed potatoes should appear stiff. DO NOT OVER MIX.
                                            For 50 servings, mix for 4-5 minutes.
                                            For 100 servings, mix for 6-7 minutes.
                                          • Spread 2 qt 2 cups (about 5 lb 5 oz) mashed potatoes over each pan of meat and gravy mixture.
                                          • Bake:
