Sharilee and her husband, Vern, live with two cats. Due to Vern's cat allergies, she has done extensive research on the subject.

What To Do With Holiday Leftovers?

Well, Thanksgiving has come and gone in my country, Canada, and I want to share my recipe that I used for our leftovers this year. We had a quiet year this year. My husband was working and so had our meal after his twelve-hour shift. Even though it was only the two of us this year, I still decided to cook the traditional turkey dinner with turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy.

The dilemma, though, is what to do with the leftovers. With only two people in the house now, a whole turkey is quite a bit of food! And freezing it all just seemed kind of boring, so I came up with a delicious recipe to use a big part of the leftover turkey, dressing, mashed potato and gravy. The concoction is a combination of turkey pie and shepherd's pie and I think you will find it quite scrumptious.

Recipe for Pie


NOTE: This recipe is my version based on my leftovers but feel free to modify it according to what you have left over. The two most important left over ingredients are the turkey and the mashed potatoes. You need to have enough turkey to cover the bottom of the pan and enough of the mashed potatoes to cover the turkey mixture. Other than that, play with it and make it your own.



  • 3 stalks celery
  • 6-7 mushrooms
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 cans mushroom soup
  • 4 cups leftover turkey
  • 6 cups leftover mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup leftover stuffing
  • 1 cup leftover gravy
  • A pinch of thyme, basil, pepper
