Leftover Thanksgiving Shepherd’s Pie


Thanksgiving was great!  Good food, family and friends – and now it’s over and you have a lot of left overs.  What do you do with them?  Here’s one idea to use up five different leftovers! 

What you need:

  • 2 cups of dressing
  • 2 cups of turkey, chopped
  • 1 to 1 ½ cup of gravy
  • ¾ cups peas
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 egg
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

How to Do it:

Spray a large, round casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.  Place the dressing in the bottom of the dish and press down to cover the entire bottom of the dish.


Mix the turkey, gravy and peas together with salt and pepper to taste.  Pour the mixture over the top of the dressing.

Mix the potatoes, egg and more salt and pepper to taste.  Cover the turkey mixture with the potatoes.


Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.  If the top doesn’t brown lightly, place it under a hot broiler for about 5 minutes.


Serves 6 to 8
