Stuffing Crust Turkey Potpie - Holiday Leftover Genius
November 11, 2016
"I modified the name of this Taste of Home recipe to add "Holiday Leftover Genius" because I've never seen a holiday meal leftover recipe that used so much of the meal to make a genuine crowd-pleaser. TOH gave credit to Tamara Furda of Naperville, Illinois for her creative way to use holiday leftovers including turkey, stuffing, gravy, veggies & mashed potatoes. It's essentially a Shepherd's Pie w/a crust twist. I cannot wait to surprise my Siggi w/this meal. -- Altho the recipe lists broccoli as the veggie ingredient, feel free to replace it w/whatever veggie (or mixed veggies) you served as part of your holiday meal. IMO the recipe is meant to be a guideline & it will be so for me. ENJOY!"
