Thanksgiving Leftovers Part 2 - Individual Turkey Shepherd's Pie
Don't be fooled by the title of this post. I know "turkey shepherd's pie" sounds like a very daunting meal - maybe even harder to make than Thanksgiving dinner itself. Well, it's not. And you don't even need the oven - just the microwave. Plus, it uses two Thanksgiving leftovers that you are sure to have a lot of - mashed potatoes and turkey.
Here's how you make it:
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon flour
1 can cream of chicken soup
¾ teaspoon poultry seasoning
2 cups mixed vegetables (frozen or fresh)
2 cups stiff mashed potatoes
paprika to taste
Reynolds Cut-Rite wax paper
STIR together milk and flour until well blended in microwave-safe bowl. Stir in soup and poultry seasoning.
COVER with a sheet of Reynolds Cut-Rite Wax Paper.
MICROWAVE on HIGH 7 to 8 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes until mixture boils and thickens.
STIR in turkey and mixed vegetables. Spoon 1 cup turkey mixture into each of 4 individual microwave-safe baking dishes. Pipe or spoon 1/2 cup potato mixture over top of each casserole. Sprinkle with paprika. Cover with wax paper.
MICROWAVE on HIGH until heated through, 9 to 11 minutes.
Moms, what other leftovers would you incorporate into this pie?
