    Here is the recipe I've been posting here for years. Those who've made it love it, those who only read it with disgust don't know what they're missing. This recipe was featured on one of the morning shows the day after Thanksgiving- in a segment with the chef Emeril. I've noticed on other sites a more complicated Emeril leftover recipe — this was a ' quick" version he was highlighting  for that segment :)

    THANKSGIVING CASSEROLE ( also known as Turkey Shepherds Pie)

    Spray a 13×9 casserole dish ( or smaller or even round for smaller amounts of leftovers) with PAM.

    Use your Thanksgiving leftover variety. Any add-in will work – as long as you end with the mashed.  ( I've used stronger veggies- green beans/brussel sprouts, etc and my kids do not like – but they are picky )

     I layer:

    1. Stuffing on bottom to cover.

    2.  Turkey to cover

    3. Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce to cover

     4. Gravy – to cover

    5. Sweet Potatoes to cover

    6. Corn to cover

    7. Mashed Potatoes to cover ( I top with a bit of parsley and a pat or 10 of butter)

    Layer the items in the order shown.. Most layers do not have to be thick-for example- the corn, but spread what you have in a uniform manner for coverage of each layer.  Use the mashed potatoes to completely seal the casserole on top. I reserve gravy to pour over the casserole at the table. ( I now make extra of everything to make a couple of these)

    Bake at 350 degrees until heated all the way through.

        yeah thanks Dian…I have just printed it up.  I think it would work for Church pot luck.  even if no left over turkey, but ground white meat, like that recipe for turkey cake.  this does look interesting.  I could not do the marshmallow things on top of the sweet potato  It is not that common up here to do that.   and I think it is a lot of work for my disapproving family.  (the cake)  but this will be great.

      Oh Humble Queen of the Kitchen,

      Last year I tried this instead of the traditional turkey soup/stew.  WOW.  I've made this "leftover miracle" for many poultry dishes this year at the insistance of the family.  It's easy to substitute with whatever is on hand and always a hit. We even plan our shopping to include enough extras to make the delicious feast.

        Jerry, since you avoid lob-i-sirs like the plague, wondering if you ever have had OYSTERS in the stuffing  (I have not)  where I live, I don't see many oysters growing in Lake Ontario.

         

        Zebra mussels?  naw, my husband hates them with a passion.  (clog up the boat bottoms and when he hauls the boats out of the water, he has to devise various methods of disposing in an envirnmental friendly way those mussels.  (gone are the days when bleach can be used in a travel lift slip. 

        I think on New Years Eve Hubby and I will try to find affordable, big enuff Lobbies, for our quiet meal.  ahhhh
