Leftover Pot Pie

More Thanksgiving leftovers to deal with.  I really do not want to have another turkey sandwich for the next 12 months!  And what to do with the left over green beans, mashed potatoes, gravy?  I made my own version of Shepard's Pie.  And because it was only for the LOML and myself, I was able to use a small 1 quart ceramic dish and bake it in the toaster oven - sweet!

1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 large clove garlic, mashed (omit if you put roasted garlic in your mashed potates)
1 cup leftover green beans (or any vegetable) chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 cup frozen green peas (you can use any other leftover vegetable like carrots..)
1 cup gravy
1 - 2 cups cooked turkey, chopped into bite-sized pieces
~2 cups mashed potatoes

Saute the onion, garlic and mushrooms in a small skillet until they are golden and the juices have evaporated.  In your baking dish mix the onion mixture with the other vegetables, gravy, and turkey.  Cover with the mashed potatoes.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

If you have leftover cranberry sauce - serve some along side!
