Here's trusting that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with lots of love from families and friends around your table filled with delicious holiday foods. If you are like me, there is sometimes a good amount of turkey leftover.
That turkey tastes even more wonderful when it is mixed with a creamy mixture of potatoes, celery, carrots and onion, and then wrapped up and baked in a flaky golden crust.
There is nothing more of a comfort food than this!
