Thanksgiving Leftovers Mini Pies

  • Author: Bull Garlington


Choosing a filling is where these pies get creative. You have a metric ton of Thanksgiving leftovers, and though most of that is potato, you can still combine classic sides to make a delicious pie. Try a filling of stuffing and gravy, of mashed potatoes and turkey, of green bean casserole and candied yams. Go crazy.


  • 4 single pie crusts, thawed
  • 2 cups of Thanksgiving leftovers
  • 1/2 cup olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Using a bowl about 4 inches across, trace and cut 8 circles from the pie-crust. Lay the crusts flat on an oiled baking sheet. You may have to fold some scraps into a ball and roll it out flat to make the last one.
  3. Place about three tablespoons of your leftover Thanksgiving filling on top of 4 of the circles (bottoms).
  4. Place the other circles (the tops) on top of your filled circles; press the dough down around the filling, crimping the edges with a fork
  5. Brush the pies on all sides with olive oil
  6. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown
