  • 1 cup gravy of your choice
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 3/4 cup cranberry sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups turkey (shredded)
  • 2 cups stuffing
  • ½ cup vegetable broth


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a baking dish, combine turkey and cranberry sauce and spread evenly.
  3. Press leftover mashed potatoes evenly on top.
  4. Scatter corn over the mashed potatoes.
  5. Mix the milk and leftover gravy and spread evenly over the mashed potatoes and corn.
