This was a big hit in the Test Kitchen! We used peas, but most any veggie would be delicious. We really liked the creaminess of the filling. This recipe to reinvent leftovers is sure to become a much-awaited Thanksgiving dish.

How To Make thanksgiving leftover pie

  • Pie plate coated with cooking spray.
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat 12 inch pie dish with cooking spray.
  • Onion, celery, and rosemary sauteeing in a pan.
    Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, celery, rosemary, salt & pepper and saute until onion and celery begin to brown. Sprinkle flour over mixture and cook about 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Slowly adding broth to the pan.
    Stir in broth gradually making sure to scrape the bottom of pan. Cook for about 5 mins until mixture starts to thicken.
  • Adding turkey and peas to the pan.
    Add veggies and turkey meat and mix well. Remove rosemary sprig.
  • Topping the filling with mashed potatoes.
    Pour into prepared glass dish and let cool about 10 mins. Spread potatoes over top. Cook for 20 mins until potatoes begin to brown. For a crispy potato "crust," put under broiler for 2 mins longer.
  • A spoonful scooped out of the Thanksgiving Leftover Pie.
    I like to serve with leftover cranberry sauce and stuffing. Yum!
