A way of using up leftover turkey (and other things) that doesn't leave it dry and flavourless. The recipe is my own invention, and I enjoy it because the meat remains moist and flavoursome.
- leftover turkey meat
- leftover prepared stuffing (I used Sage and onion)
- leftover gravy
- salt & pepper
- Butter a casserole dish.
- Peel and slice potatoes.
- Pull turkey apart into BIG bite size pieces.
- Layer up potatoes, turkey, and lumps of stuffing, (in that order), putting a tiny knob of butter and a scant sprinkling of S& P onto the potatoes with each layer.
- Save a layer of potatoes for the top.
- Pour gravy (possibly thinned down a bit) over all, until it only just covers, and then add the reserved layer of potatoes.
- Put a knob of butter and some S& P onto each potato.
- Cover casserole with foil (or a lid) and bake in a low oven for about an hour (longer if you have done a large hotpot)- make sure the potatoes are cooked by inserting a knife to see if they are tender.
- Serve with cabbage, brussels sprouts, carrots- whatever veg you like, and, for the piggies amongst us, some crusty bread.
I made this tonight with some left-over turkey and was it ever good!! I used country style stuffing and added lots of gravy (thinned out) so that it would be juicy. This is a definite keeper and I highly recomend it!!!!
I made this with leftover turkey and gravy and stuffing. I did have to make up some extra gravy to pour over it. Delicious! Took it over to my sons and they loved it too! Thanks for a great way to use leftovers!
I have to agree with the other reviews. Delicious! It was almost better this way than it was in the first place. I used leftover mashed potatoes instead of peeled and sliced potatoes, leftover "turkey" Stove Top stuffing and leftover homemade giblet gravy. The only complaint I got was that there wasn't enough. I'm going to have to buy a larger casserole dish for next Thanksgiving. :)
