I had a lot of leftovers…. I had been concerned, with the quantity of people I was having for Thanksgiving day, that I would run out of food, so I, as always, went over board… Enough for people to take home with them, enough for leftovers to feed a small third world country….
A lot of leftovers have already gone into the freezer. Turkey stock was made, pizzas and home-made hot pockets were created… turkey coming out of our ears. I had just enough meat and other things to make one of our all time favorite left over standards. You don’t have to wait until Thanksgiving to do this recipe. Left overs are a beautiful thing!
Thanksgiving Leftovers Turkey Pot Pie:
- Stuffing (already cooked)
- 1 – 2 cups of left over vegetables
- 2 cups of gravy, if it’s thick, you can use 1 cup of gravy, and 1 cup of liquid to thin it down a bit.
- 1 and 1/2 cups to 2 cups of cut up turkey. (I have also made this with left over chicken, beef, etc.)
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup of cheese
- Mashed Potatoes
Preheat oven to 375 F
In a greased pie plate, press the stuffing in the bottom to make a crust.
In a bowl, combine vegetables, meat and gravy, pour over stuffing.
Sprinkle on cheese
Top with mashed potatoes.
Bake for 35 – 45 minutes , until filling is hot and bubbly, and potatoes have a nice golden brown to them.
