Instant Turkey Pot Pie

Serves as many as you like

This is the first incarnation of leftovers at our house. It was a spur of the moment lunch I prepared for the Mr., and a very thrifty use of all the leftovers. I’m not including exact amounts, but rather giving you the blueprint so you can make individual servings or layer them into a larger casserole dish to serve family style (and I highly recommend a basket of biscuits if you do it that way too).



White and dark meat turkey, chopped or shredded

Mashed potatoes

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Butter the bottom and sides of individual ramekins or a 12-inch oval casserole dish. Spoon an even layer of stuffing into the bottom of the dish. In a separate bowl mix together some gravy and turkey. Spoon on top of the stuffing. Using an offset spatula, spread a layer of mashed potatoes on top.

Bake until heated through, about 15 to 18 minutes for individual servings, and 25 to 28 minutes for larger casseroles. Remove from oven and turn oven setting to broil. Place casserole under the broiler until top turns golden, 3 to 5 minutes, watching carefully so it does not burn. Serve immediately.
