Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I wanted to focus this Thanksgiving post on the leftovers and remind you about the world’s best use of those mounds of excess. Those of you who have already experienced the culinary pleasure of this dish (like my friend Gloria) can be testimony which neatly packs all the best flavors into one concise and brilliant dish.
Simply layer your leftovers as you would assemble a lasagne. Start with a thin layer of mashed potatoes if you have them. Pre-bake it (on 375) in a greased pie dish for a crispy crust. Then add a layer of cubed turkey, a generous drizzle of gravy, stuffing, cubed turkey, more stuffing, more gravy and a layer of corn bread batter on top. Bake on 375 for about 45 minutes to an hour and serve with more gravy and a generous dollop of cranberry sauce. Oh my! You will not regret making this Thanksgiving leftover pie! It’s truly sensational. Though it’ll be hard not to eat it the next day, wrap it up and put it in the freezer to enjoy later when you’re craving the Thanksgiving flavors.
This pie is the number one on my top ten but then here’s some more ideas!
