A way to use up holiday leftovers

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 cups cooked turkey, shredded (or chicken or roast beef)
  • 3 -4 cups cooked vegetables (I use carrots, corn, onions, green beans, and peas)
  • 1 -1 12 cup gravy (to match meat flavor) or 1 -1 12 cup one can cream of chicken soup
  • 3 -4 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 egg


  1. Heat vegetables, meat, and gravy on the stove until warmed then pour into a greased casserole dish.
  2. Mix mashed potatoes with egg and spread over the warmed filling.
  3. Bake at 400°F for about 25-30 minutes until filling is bubbly.
  4. Want a change? Sprinkle cheese on top, or mash ranch dressing mix into the potatoes with 2 TBS sour cream.

Anme, your recipe was fabulous and simple. I chose this one over some others, since I didn't think it needed the additional starch of stuffing. I think it tasted better layered than when originally served, since the gravy flavors all the parts! The egg makes the potatoes puff up a bit, too. Both my teens preferred it this way! I used leftover gravy and sprinkled with pepper. Thanks for posting.

We loved this version of shepard's pie! I had frozen my left over turkey from Thanksgiving so I used up the last of that in this dish. I really loved the addition of the gravy, that's really what makes this special. Thanks for posting this awesome recipe Anme!
