I was looking for something a little different as a way to use up my turkey leftovers. My family loved this dinner, including 3 teenagers! I threw in some extra turkey because it didn't look like enough, and I would add even more next time. I think 2 cups of turkey would be a better amount to keep it thick. Also, I would have paid closer attention to the amount of sour cream and/or broth in the potatoes as mine ended up a little thin. Very tasty and I will use this recipe again!

I was looking for a way to use leftover turkey and we liked this so much sometimes I make chicken just to use this recipe. I have also used a lb of ground beef my family loves it. I sometimes use whatever veggies I have leftover or add frozen peas or corn to it. I always add more than a cup of turkey or chicken. It makes it's own gravy that seeps up over the mashed potatoes which you can see in my picture. That is a 9 X 11 pan I used.

I made half the recipe and added a little more turkey and a small can of peas and carrots. This was super, like a pot pie with potato crust. Excellent for leftovers that are so diff from the original dinner. Thanks for posting Chicopee.
