Yum, Yum, Yummy! Such a great & quick way to use up leftovers. Instead of chopping up a carrot, i used leftover veggies (corn, peas, carrots). Also to make my dried-out-day-old mashed potatoes a little creamier, I added a bit of cream cheese. I'm not too adventure-some; so, I left out the orange juice. Other than that, no changes & VERY happy with the results! Thanks for sharing.

I thought this was a wonderful way to use up turkey, as well as all the other left overs. I used all dark meat, since i'd already froze the white meat. It worked fine. I also added cooked carrots left from 24k Carrots from mama's kitchen. I added the carrots after the celery and onions were cooked. I didn't have sweet potatos, so I used regular mashed potatos and added even more. Anyway, it all turned out very good. This recipe has wonderful potential for a great deal of variety. I think the turkey filling part would be good in turkey pot pies. I think I'll try peas in it next time. Thanks for a great recipe.

Excellent! Lovely combination of flavors and sure to be a kid favorite. Made exactly as stated except I made four individual servings in 2 quart Pyrex dishes (filled half full, so pint containers will also work). When cooled, I pressed plastic wrap down over the topping, wrapped in foil and froze two for another meal. Next time I might sprinkler some crumbled stuffing over the mashed potatoes and perhaps add green beans or peas to the filling. Thanks for the wonderful recipe - we'll certainly be making this after every turkey dinner!

Just finished dinner - yum! I didn't make quite as directed; there weren't enough mashed potatos left, so I made up the difference by mashing the leftover parsnip casserole (#152495) and I didn't have any orange juice or chives. Great, easy recipe!

This recipe is very good & enjoyed by all family members. Followed the recipe as posted except I used mashed potatoes instead of sweet. I had the gravy left from the roasted chicken. Thank you NcMysteryShopper! I am always looking for recipes for leftover chicken & this recipe will be served often.

This was pretty good. Next time I will add more gravy and probably more seasoning. It's a good base recipe.

This is a great recipe. I used chicken with this. Mine could have used more gravy though, because the leftovers were drier than the first dish! I made two dishes out of this and froze the second one without baking. Thanks!!

Oh yummy yummy! I made most of this by my own self! I scooped the leftovers from Thanksgiving and put the right amounts in the pan. I used the food processor to cut up the onions and the carrots and the celery. I also mixed the potatoes in the processor with the egg. I made dinner all by myself!!!

This recipe got a big thumbs up from the whole family. I used garlic mashed potatoes and mixed candied yams into it. It looked a big funky coming out of the oven but the taste was just great.

This turned out really well. I followed the recipe faithfully with the exception of substituting scallions for chives and dried sage for fresh (Amazingly, I had everything else on hand). My wife thought it was perfect as it was. I'm tempted to play around with it - maybe a little orange zest, maybe garlic, maybe tarragon. Anyway, it was even better leftover, which says a lot since the turkey was then doubly leftover.
