Why this recipe sings

There are many leftover stuffing recipes but this one is my favorite.

It is great to enjoy the delicious goodies of Thanksgiving or Christmas for a few more days. But it can get repetitive, and sometimes we would like some variety. That’s where these pot pies come in. They are a creative way to enjoy a mini Thanksgiving meal again without much effort!

They are ready in twenty five minutes tops.

This is what you need

Ingredients for making leftover stuffing mini pot pies.
  • Leftover stuffing. Our Greek stuffing is the biggest hit on our holiday table and the first top run out. I always make extra because I know how much we love it.
  • Leftover mashed potatoes. Sweet potato casserole would also work for these mini pies.
  • Leftover gravy. To add moisture to the pies.
  • Puff pastry. I love a buttery, flaky crust on these pies. I always get the puff pastry made with real butter like Dufour.
  • One egg. For making an egg wash to brush the crust before baking.

    I made an extra big batch of stuffing for Thanksgiving this year and this was a perfect and delish recipe to use them in. My family loved these pot pies as our dinner after cutting down our Christmas tree.
