Accidental Locavore Turkey Shepherd's PieHere’s a great way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers. This is based on things most people have leftover, but substitute whatever you’d like. Most important, have fun!

  • Turkey, shredded
  • Gravy
  • Mashed potatoes (white or sweet)
  • Stuffing
  • Almost any green vegetable
  • Cranberry sauce (optional)
  • Gruyere, (or any firm cheese) grated
  • Butter (for greasing ramekins)

Preheat the oven to 375°. With the butter, lightly grease some ramekins or small gratin pans (you could also use one large gratin pan). In a small bowl mix the turkey and gravy so the turkey is coated with the gravy, set aside. If you have some green vegetables, put a thin layer of them on the bottom of the ramekins. Add a layer of the turkey and gravy mix. If you want to use cranberry sauce, add it on top of the turkey. Top that with a layer of stuffing. Finish with a layer of potatoes. Sprinkle the cheese on top of the potatoes. Bake for 30-35 minutes until the cheese is melted and the potatoes are golden brown. Serve and enjoy!
