My favorite part of Thanksgiving is the leftovers! I can't wait to make my favorite sandwich on Black Friday. Two pieces of bread slathered with leftover gravy and then layered with turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. YUM! Oh yeah, I look forward to the day after more than the holiday itself!
There are quite a few dishes that we look forward to after the holiday, Turkey Tetrazzini, Turkey Hash, and Turkey Shepherd's pie.
1 1/2 C chopped leftover turkey
2 stalks celery, chopped
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 C leftover vegetables
2 C leftover mashed potatoes
1/2 C cheddar cheese, shredded
1 TBSP olive oil
1 TBSP butter
1 C leftover gravy
Heat oil and butter together. Saute celery, onion and carrot until they begin to soften. Add garlic and heat through. Add vegetables and turkey. Add gravy and warm through.
In a bowl combine mashed potatoes with egg and cheese. You may have to add a little milk or broth to thin it.
Grease a deep dish pie plate or casserole dish. Place turkey and veggie mixture into dish, smooth mashed potatoes over the top. Bake in 350 degree oven for 30-45 minutes or until potatoes begin to brown. Enjoy!
