Thanksgiving Leftovers: Turkey Shepard’s Pie


I hope all of you have had a great Thanksgiving weekend.
One of the things I enjoy about Thanksgiving is trying out  new “leftover” recipes.  But there’s one go to recipe, Thanksgiving Leftovers Turkey Shepard’s Pie, that I’ve made the last five years. It is soooooo good.

I have to be honest, when I first spotted this recipe by Emeril, it sounded strange, for turkey anyway.  But I’m a girl who loves to cook and try out new recipes.  What was there to lose?

This is comfort food with great flavor.  I’ve made Shepard’s pie before and found it bland, not this recipe, it has great flavor.  What’s also great about it is that the ingredients come right from your Thanksgiving table.

Do yourself a favor and try this recipe out. It’s comes together quick.

Preparing the Veggies: Saute the onions and carrot in the oil, and add the Essence, salt and pepper.  Saute till tender.

Add garlic, saute for 20 seconds, then add the mushrooms, thyme and bay leaf. Saute till mushrooms are tender.

Preparing the Sauce: Add flour, stir and cook for 1 minute. Stir tomato paste in and cook for 1 minute.  Add turkey, stir in stock and peas, bring to boil, reduce and cook for 6-8 minutes.

Pulling All Together: Remove bay leafs, place in your baking dish, and spoon and spread the mashed potatoes over the top.  Sprinkle with cheese and bake for 20 – 25 minutes. Till cheese is bubbly and hot.

Oh so good, this is one of Mr. Charmer’s favorites!

    You make such delicious meals! I’m using the last of the turkey to make a turkey noodle casserole tonight, otherwise I’d try this one. Made turkey-veggie soup this weekend!

    Oh my goodness! That’s my kind of recipe. Too bad I wasn’t the one making the turkey. I had no leftovers but I bet it’s fine with chicken as well. I will definitely have to give this a try.
