Thanksgiving Leftover Recipe

Turkey Mashed Potato and Jack Cheese Casserole (serves 4)


3 cups scraps, bite-size pieces, or slices skinned cooked turkey
1 cup turkey gravy
2 cups mashed potatoes
1 cup (1/4 lb.) shredded Jack Cheese
Salt and pepper

1.Butter a shallow 1 1/2-quart casserole. Cover bottom evenly with turkey. Drizzle 3/4 cup gravy (hot or cold, stirred to soften) over the meat. Stir potatoes to soften, mound onto turkey, and swirl to cover surface of meat. Drizzle remaining 1/4 cup gravy over potatoes, then sprinkle evenly with cheese.

2.Bake in a 450° oven until turkey and potatoes are hot in the center (about 140°), 10 to 15 minutes. If desired, broil 4 to 6 in. from heat until cheese is lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Season portions with salt and pepper to taste.
