  • 2 cups coarsely chopped turkey breast
  • 1 1/4 cups turkey gravy or 1 12-oz carton turkey or chicken gravy (McCormick)
  • 1 cup cooked green beans or peas
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup cooked chopped carrots optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese or Colby Jack divided
  • 2 1/2 cups mashed potatoes heated for spreading


  • Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, stir together turkey, gravy, green beans, corn, carrots, salt and pepper. Spoon mixture into a 8-inch cast iron skillet or a 1 1/2 quart casserole dish coated with cooking spray.
  • Stir 1/2 cup cheese into mashed potatoes. Dollop mashed potatoes over turkey mixture, then spread them to the edges of pan; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 25 minutes or until gravy is bubbly around edges.


Shortcut: If you don’t have left over peas and carrots, use 1 1/2 cups (10-oz) pkg mixed vegetables.
