Serves 8 to 10
Ingredients

1 cup cheese puffs
3/4 cup shredded cheese or 6 ounce block of cheese (use what was leftover from your cheese plate)
Leftover turkey (the dark meat), diced
Leftover stuffing
Leftover gravy
Leftover mashed potatoes

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350°. Pulse together the cheese puffs and cheese until finely ground; reserve 1/4 of this mixture and puree the rest with the leftover mashed potatoes.

In a large ovenproof casserole dish, layer in the turkey, stuffing and a bit of the gravy (just enough to make it moist but not overly soggy). Top the shepherd’s pie with a thick, even layer of the cheesy mashed potatoes; sprinkle with the reserved cheese puff/cheese mixture and bake until bubbly and golden brown on top, about 30 minutes.
