Thanksgiving Shepherd's Pie

We're really behind on posts...but don't fret we have lots to report from our end!

Since this is REALLY easy, I couldn't resist posting right away.

If you're like me, you have more than your fair share of leftover turkey, dressing, etc. etc. etc. after last week's festivities. I was trying to brainstorm what do with all these leftovers and ran across the most perfect idea (and it definitely appeases my husband's love for "goulash"!)--Thanksgiving Shepherd's Pie!

There are several recipes out there, but this is what I did:

  • grease a baking dish (whatever size fits your leftovers!)
  • add stuffing (I used about 2.5 cups)
  • add turkey (I used about 2 cups)
  • add gravy (not sure how much I used, I just poured on what I had!)
  • add corn (this wasn't leftover, but I had some frozen corn that I used--half a bag)
  • add mashed potatoes (I used about a cup)
  • bake at 325 for about 45 minutes or until the potatoes begin to brown
Let is cool a bit and enjoy!

For the leftovers of the leftovers, I think I'll add a little salsa or tomatilla sauce (what can I say, I'm a love of all things Tex-Mex).

Stay tuned for lots of holiday related posts soon!
