  1. PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Lightly butter the inside of a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
  2. COOK the ground turkey in a skillet with the garlic and herbs, breaking up any larger pieces of turkey with a spatula, until the turkey is browned and any liquid has evaporated.  Season with salt and pepper.
  3. ARRANGE half of the potato slices over the bottom of the baking dish so that they overlap. Dot with half of the small pieces of butter.
  4. SCATTER the ground turkey mixture evenly over potatoes. Sprinkle half of the cheese evenly over the turkey. Arrange remaining potatoes over the top so that they overlap each other and dot with remaining butter. Season evenly with the remaining salt.
