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!

Another goodie to add to my 'leftovers' recipe collection! Great way to use up odds and ends. I halved the recipe for the two of us and used cooked chicken, carrots, peas, yellow beans, and onions for the veggies, and cream of chicken soup. I baked it in my toaster oven and sprinkled grated cheddar cheese on top for the last 10 minutes or so until the cheese melted. Update: Made this recipe again using leftover cooked roast beef from the freezer, canned Heinz beef gravy, leftover cooked peas and carrots, and used my Microwave Mashed Potatoes for the mashed potatoes. Dotted the top of the potatoes with butter and sprinkled with paprika. Love this recipe.

i made this up to freeze some for next weeks dinners, but dbf and i had some of them for lunch, i used left overs from meatloaf but had to fry up one of my "helper" meat packages also (about 1/3 lb chunks i freeze for when you just want a little extra meat :)) I made them up individually in a muffin tin so i could do diffrent things to each one, dbf loved the ranch and sour cream mixed into his potatoes, and i sprinkled cheddar cheese on mine, and also cut down on the gravy, i used beef gravy for some and cream of mushroom soup for others - will be making again!

What a great basic recipe! We had leftover mashed potatoes from last night and turkey (mostly dark meat) in our full freezer and since my mom usually lives alone, all kinds of small amounts of veggies she had frozen. What we wound up with was pure deliciousness! 1 can of cream of chicken seemed light on the "gravy", so I used 2. We had a great variety of veggies including lima beans, french cut green beans, glazed carrots, shoepeg corn, yellow squash with onion, and to round out to 4 cups, I cooked a Green Giant pack of carrots, zucchini and green beans that were lightly seasoned. The combination of that seasoning and the glaze from the carrots gave a lot of flavor to this, so don't be afraid of the seasonings you used cooking your veggies. I think we'll get closer to 8 servings from this tasty dish. I enjoyed it so much that I'd like to keep a 4 cup container in the freezer to dump all my leftover bits of veggies. When it's full, time to make this again! Thanks for sharing anme!
