None of your boys will realize that they are eating leftovers unless you tell them!

Lucky you! From reading the posts, you can tell that not many families will not eat ‘ordinary’ leftovers. Personally, I never had that problem while married.
I was married to a musician and he would eat dinner with us (lunch for him) and then eat the leftovers that I stashed in the oven when he got home (dinner). I never had leftovers! It wasn’t until we divorced that I encountered, “Didn’t we just have this?”
from my daughter! LOL! That was when I decided that I had to be creative and started me on the path to writing the cookbook that I seem to be forever writing about

Oh, Tbrunke, I am so sorry that you lost your husband! It has to be tuff for you;-/ and, thank goodness that your boys will eat what you provide! that last thing that you need is ‘won’t touch that.’

This sounds delicious!!! Similar to Shepherd’s Pie and yet better 🙂

I often cook “too much” on purpose so that we have left overs! I will use this recipe this next week ….probably Tuesday cause we’re having roast beef on Sunday. It sounds like it is very yummy!

Angelwhispers4, you are right in that it is similar to shepherd’s pie;-D It is what gave me the inspiration to develop this recipe!
Gramshel (and all), the best thing about this recipe is that it will work for just about any leftover meat — roast chicken, pork, or turkey. I would just change the gravy to a light gravy vs a brown one. Have fun with it!
Make what ever changes that you need to make to suit your family’s needs…make it your own!
