Thanksgiving Leftover Turkey Shepherd’s Pie – “Keep Calm and Shop On”

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that you are all trying to “Keep Calm and Shop On” though the Black Friday sales!  If anyone wants to take a breather and replenish yourselves, left overs are probably your go to for the rest of the weekend.  How about a quick way to turn all your left overs into a hearty meal.  I thought up a Turkey Shepherd’s Pie made entirely of Thanksgiving leftovers.  This works particularly well if you have a lot of steamed or roasted vegies left.  If you don’t, I suggest some sauteed mushrooms.


Thanksgiving Leftover Turkey Shepherd’s Pie


2 Cups left over turkey meat

1 Cup left over steamed, roasted, or sautéed vegetables (greens beans, carrots, etc.)

2 Cups left over gravy

11/2 Cups left over mashed potatoes


In a bowl mix together turkey meat and vegetables.  Add the gravy and mix well.

Pour the mixture into a casserole dish and spoon mashed potatoes over the top.  Use the back of a spoon to make an even layer and create a seal.

Place pie on a baking sheet and bake 20 minutes until the top is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.

Note: You can also make individual versions in ramekins by just splitting up the mixture and potatoes.  It’s perfect if you need lunch for one or two people the next day.
