Step By Step  

As easy as dinner gets – leftovers mingle in a slow cooker and are topped with crunchy stuffing!

As prepared by Macheesmo,

Make this recipe with leftover turkey or rotisserie chicken. It's scrumptious.

Of course, nobody wants to cook much after a huge Thanksgiving feast. Turkey sandwiches are just fine for dealing with the leftovers.

But maybe, just maybe, we can do better with very little work. After all, there are so many great foods in the fridge after a Thanksgiving dinner!

These little pot pies are one of my favorite things to make. They are completely flexible and let you customize with what you have in your fridge.

 

Thanksgiving Turkey Pot Pie

The three things that I think are most common for leftovers are turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing.

We can use these to make a shepherd's pie of sorts. The key to any good pot pie is to make a great gravy. If you happen to have a good amount of leftover gravy, then you can just warm that to use. But I’ve never seen much leftover gravy, so here’s how to make a super-quick fresh batch.

Melt a few tablespoons of butter in a pot over medium heat and whisk in an equal amount of flour. Then whisk in two cups of stock slowly. Heat that until it’s bubbling and season the light gravy with salt and pepper.

Then you can stir in some leftover turkey.

I like to add some color to it, so I stir in some corn and peas (or edamame) also. Optional, but a little veg never hurts.

Assembling these couldn’t be easier. You can use either individual ramekins or one large baking dish. Layer in the gravy, then add a thin layer of mashed potatoes and top each one with leftover stuffing!

Drizzle the stuffing with a tiny bit of melted butter and bake these guys at 450ºF for about 10 minutes to warm everything through.

Then broil them on high to crisp up the stuffing on top a bit.
