Thanksgiving Leftovers Shepherds Pie

So, it’s the day after Thanksgiving and you house is full of leftovers. Most people just reheat everything and eat it the same way but this year I’m trying out something different! Instead, I’m going to mix all of my leftovers and make a yummy Thanksgiving Leftovers Shepherds Pie! Sounds delicious right? I’m already a big fan of leftovers so I am really excited to try this one out!

It is super simple to make. I’m basically going to take a little bit  of everything(turkey,green bean casserole, brussels sprouts, corn, gravy, dressing, etc.) and mix it together for the base. Then top it all of with mashed potatoes. Feel free to add any of your leftover! Every family has their special Thanksgiving meal which will make your Leftover Shepherds Pie so special. Have fun and happy holidays!!
