GEEK EATS: Leftover Thanksgiving Meal Shepherd’s Pie

Jump to recipe

Thanksgiving is over and if you are like me, you have a ton of leftovers that you are trying to figure out what to do with. You could make Turkey Turnovers again, but you’ve already tried that recipe. Looking in the refrigerator, it is quite evident that there is still more than a meal left from turkey day. So how about turning them all into a Shepherd’s Pie? That’s what I decided to do. I am pleased to say that I was quite pleased with the results! The premise is taking pretty much all of the Thanksgiving meal leftovers and turning them into a Shepherd’s Pie. I found several different versions of this recipe online but ended up creating my own with the same general ideas. Give this recipe a try or make your own variation! Then, let me know how it turned out and what you thought in the comments below!

This recipe I thought turned out pretty good. It didn’t need any seasoning as all of the leftovers included in it already had been seasoned. I did let some of the ingredients sit out and get closer to room temperature while I prepared the leftover turkey. This ended up being a hearty meal on a cool evening that I definitely will be making again! You could also use other leftovers from your Thanksgiving meal if you don’t have the specific ingredients that I have. My hunch is that this is a fairly forgiving recipe! Have fun and enjoy creating your own rendition of this recipe!
