We had so many leftovers from the other night’s Garlic Lime Roasted Turkey with Cornbread Chorizo Stuffing, I decided to turn it into a Shepherd’s Pie-type casserole. *I made this the day after, but didn’t get to post until today.*
This is more of an assembly than a recipe. First, I layered the remaining stuffing in the bottom of a baking dish. Next, I broke the remaining turkey into pieces and spread it out on top of the stuffing. I covered it with a white sauce, but if I had made gravy I would have used that. (The white sauce is easy to make: In a small saucepan, mix 2 Tbsp butter and 2 Tbsp flour. Mix it and let it cook briefly, then add one cup milk. Stir occasionally and allow to thicken over low heat.) Finally, spread leftover mashed potatoes on the top of the casserole, dot with butter and sprinkle with paprika. Bake at 350°F for 30-45 minutes until heated through.
Do you have any secrets to transform leftovers into a new delicious meal?
