Thanksgiving Leftovers Shepherd's Pie

This blog is long overdue with Thanksgiving being nearly two months ago, but better late then never, right?   Baking a Thanksgiving Turkey is one of my absolutely favorite things to do because I have many wonderful recipes for the leftovers!  This one is sort of a Thanksgiving tradition for my dad to make and he passed down his secret ingredient to me.  I like you guys so much, that I'll share that ingredient ;) There's a printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.

  • 1 Cup of Shredded Leftover Turkey
  • 2 Cups of Leftover Veggies (I used frozen corn & peas)
  • 1 Can of Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1/2 Cup of Milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Thyme
  • 2 Cups of Leftover Mashed Potatoes
  • 1 Cup of the Secret Ingredient (you'll find out soon!)
  • 2 Cups (1 pkg) of Shredded Cheese

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 13 x 9 inch pan.
  • Mix turkey, veggies, soup, milk and seasonings in the pan.  Top with mashed potatoes.  If your potatoes are a bit hard or lumpy then add some extra milk or sour cream to whip them up. Next comes the secret ingredient!
  • Next sprinkle 1 cup of crushed potato chips on top.  This adds a crunch and a bit of salt to the mix.  Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Top with cheese, then bake for 5 minutes.
  • Let it cool then serve!
