It’s fun creating new dishes out of old dishes… You never quite know what it will be – you just know it will be good!

We had leftover turkey and leftover boursin mashed potatoes that I originally thought I would make into potato pancakes.

I was in the mood for a creamy casserole with a crunchy bread crumb topping, but also wanted to use up the potatoes.  The result?!?  Do both!

I cooked up a bit of onion in some butter, added  some flour and then chicken broth and cream.  Into that went cut up turkey, frozen mixed bvegetables, and cooked tri-colored pasta.

I added an egg and a bit of flour to the potatoes, scooped them out and dropped them into panko bread crumbs and placed the potato patties on top of the casserole!  Into the oven it went for about 40 minutes and dinner was served!

We had the crunchy topping AND the potato pancakes all rolled into one!


Oh… and thank goodness for self-cleaning ovens!
