Christmas Shepherd's Pie

Trying to utilize our CHRISTmas leftovers, I thought today would be a great day to make a shepherd's pie. I added a little extra ingredients that make it different from the usual shepherds pie, but none the taste just as great.

Christmas Shepherd's Pie

1/2 lb. cooked turkey - diced
1 can whole kernel corn - drained
1 1/4 cup leftover cooked green beans
2 cups leftover cooked stuffing
1/2 tsp. dried sage
1 (12oz) jar chicken gravy
1/2 c. jellied cranberry sauce - sliced
1 pkg. mashed potatoes - prepared (or 2 cups leftover prepared mashed potatoes)
1/2 c. grated cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350* Grease a 2-3 qt. casserole dish and set aside.

In a medium size mixing bowl, combine turkey, corn, green beans, stuffing, sage and gravy.

Stir to mix well (ok, I admit it doesn't look too appealing, but trust me on this.)

Pour into prepared casserole dish.

Layer cranberry slices on top of turkey mixture.

Next spread prepared mashed potatoes over cranberries.

Top with a layer of grated cheese.

Bake at 350* for 25-30 minutes until cheese is melted and casserole is bubbly.
