Wait a minute! About those left over mashed...why use puff pastry, when you can top your pot pie casserole with the mashed and make a shepherd type of pie instead?

I woudn't make use custard to bind the mix but I'd use the left over gravy with the turkey, veggies and so on, top it with the mashed, drizzle it with melted butter or olive oil, sprinkle it with grated cheese of your choice, and bake till golden brown.

Yummy.
