Yummy! Great way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers. I didn't have mashed potatoes, so I peeled a potato, diced it really small, and used that instead. The potato cooked no problem in the pies. Also, I used 1/2 cup of leftover green bean casserole, which gave it a good flavor from the mushroom soup in the casserole. Be aware that you will have extra volume from the diced potatoes, so you will end up using both pieces of pie crust, instead of the 1 1/2 that the recipe calls for. My husband loved these, so they passed the true test. I got 20 pies out of the two crusts.
