Winter pie

Recipe from Carolyn Christiansen

Serves 4-6

6 cups mashed potatoes
2 cups cheese (I use hard: cheddar, colby)
3 Tb. chives or green chilies (for spice/color)
1/2 chopped & sauteed sweet onion

Mix these together and press into a casserole dish or pie pan (the deeper the better). Cook under the broiler for 2 minutes.

In a large bowl, mix:
3 cups leftover meat, shredded or chopped
3-4 cups of leftover or mixed cooked veggies
1 cup sour cream
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can (small) french fried onions
2 tsp. garlic

Pour into potato crust and bake at 350 for 30 min. Serve with a sprig of parsley and a cup of hot cider near a crackling fire with a good book. This is heartier than soup, but just as warm and comfy! It is great after the holidays, to use up all the leftovers. You can also make the crust out of leftover stuffing, but there is never any stuffing left at my house, as I use cranberries and apples in mine!
