A turkey big enough for 20. Dinner was canceled because of snow. Turkey, turkey everywhere. That is what inspired this dish.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

What a great way to use some of your Thanksgiving leftovers. Crescent rolls are a delicious crust for this shepherd's pie. It adds a light, buttery flavor. The turkey is moist, and the potatoes are super creamy. We loved the addition of smoked Gouda and the flavor it adds. This easy-to-make meal will quickly become a staple way to reinvent holiday leftovers.

Ingredients For turkey shepherd pie

  • 1 pkg

    cooked turkey
  • 1 c
    green beans
  • 1/2 c

How To Make turkey shepherd pie

  • Crescent rolls pressed into a pie plate.
    Open crescent rolls and layout in a 9 inch pie pan. Press to seal edges. Poke with a fork randomly.
  • Chopped turkey on top of the crust.
    Layer turkey on top of pastry.
  • Green beans and corn added.
    Add green beans and then corn spreading them out to cover the dish.
  • Gravy poured over the veggies.
    If using leftover yummy turkey gravy, add water to loosen and cover the pie pan with gravy. Spread all over pie.
  • Mashed potatoes spread over the veggies.
    Leftover potatoes spread easier if you heat them a little first. Spread potatoes evenly over the pie mixture.
  • Shredded cheese on top of the potatoes.
    Sprinkle shredded cheese on top of potatoes and season to taste.
  • Turkey Shepherd's Pie baking in the oven.
    Place in a preheated 400 degree oven bake about 30 minutes until bubbly and a golden brown. Broil for the last 5 mins to achieve ultimate golden brown crispiness.
