Leftover Turkey Shepard’s Pie
- 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1 large onion, diced
- 2 ribs celery, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 5 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour
- 2 cups turkey stock
- ½ cup whole milk
- 1 ½ tablespoons Stubb’s Chicken Spice Rub

- Stir in flour, stirring constantly until a thick, golden roux is formed, about 2-3 minutes. Stirring constantly, stir in turkey broth and milk. Simmer for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until gravy is thickened. Stir in Stubb’s Chicken Spice Rub, thyme, sage, turkey and mixed vegetables. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5-6 minutes.
