I know you’re all stuffed from your night of splurging on your favorite meal of the year. To even think about eating right now is probably the last thing you want to think about. You have all these leftovers though!
I’m sure you’re probably thinking, “What am I going to do with all this food!?” Don’t worry, I have you covered with a fantastic idea for all those leftovers. Here’s how to turn all that food into a Thanksgiving leftover dinner!
Shepard’s Pie ingredients:
- 2 Cups Cut Turkey
- 1 1/2 – 2 Cups frozen Peas and Carrots (Or any leftover veggie)
- 1 1/2 Cups Gravy (see below)
- 2 Cup Mashed Sweet Potato (Yams)
Take 2 cups Turkey Drippings (fat) and put in a saucepan. Turn on the heat and let it thin out. Once thinned out, add 1/4-1/3 cup (whatever thickness desired) of Tapioca Starch (or other starch/flour).
Whisk in starch/flour and continue whisking until it starts thickening.
Add 1 cup Organic Milk and whisk.
Now add 1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder, 1/2 Tsp Onion Powder, 1/2 Tsp Black Pepper and Salt to desired taste.
Cut up your Turkey into small chunks and place in mixing bowl. Add your frozen Peas and Carrots (or another veggie) to your turkey and stir together.
Step 6 & Step 7
Pour in 2 cups of gravy (or however much you want) and stir well.
Pour mixture into a glass bowl or 8×8 glass pan. Place in oven at 350* and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Using already cooked leftover yams (or bake 2-3 sweet potatoes for 1 hour @ 350°F). Using 1/4 cup of Organic Milk, use an electric mixer to blend up yams.
Scoop mashed yams and spread over baked Turkey mixture. Lightly coat with melted butter to give the top of the yams a crisp to them.
Place back in oven and bake for another 10 minutes (or until top is lightly brown.
Take out of the oven and let cool. Enjoy!
