    This was fantastic! We liked it even more than the traditional Thanksgiving dinner and it was certainly easier to serve. I did not use the cranberry sauce in the recipe but served it as a side. Highly recommended!!

    This is one of my husband's favorite, during the year we sometimes have a mini-T-Day feast just so we can have this Shepherd's pie!

    Just made it with pie crust, leftover turkey, leftover spinach, and leftover double baked potatoes, which I turned into mash. I really like it, but it still has to pass the household test. Now, have to figure out a good pasta sauce with turkey for tomorrow, and we will be done with leftovers :)

    Oh, we love to do this. It's really great in a pastry crust as well - put the pastry crust in the bottom of a pie dish, pile on the thanksgiving leftovers, top with mashed potatoes. You could even put a second crust on top if you like. This is the best way to use up those leftovers!

    I have been using this recipe since I first saw it on one of Martha's shows and love it. I now look forward to this meal even more than the actual Thanksgiving meal itself!

    Coming from England to join my American friends for Thanksgiving, we tried this recipe the next day - it was deliciously WONDERFUL!! I did the same recipe for Christmas leftovers back in the UK - everyone loved it and wanted the recipe - thank you!!
