Many people tell me how much they love a post-Thanksgiving casserole made from all the leftovers.
I have personally never done this, but I understand why it would be delicious. What I don’t understand however, is: Why can you only have this once a year?
These flavors are around all season! This twist on a shepherd's pie
hits a lot of the Thanksgiving flavors and comes together in just about an hour. No turkey roasting needed!
Mostly sweet potato, with some regular potato just to add a little starch and make it less squashy (as sweet potato can sometimes get).
Bottom layer of turkey and gravy.
Middle layer is corn and cranberry, and top is the potato. Yum.
Let it sit for 10 minutes after it comes out of the oven – it won’t fall apart as you cut it into squares.
All my roommates loved this dish, and thought it was perfect for a chilly fall night. We had it on a Sunday and it really capped off the weekend and got everyone ready for the week ahead!
