Over the holidays, I brined two turkey breasts.
It was glorious.
But then I had a shitload of leftover turkey. Sure, we ate leftovers, and made the occasional turkey/mashed potato/gravy sandwich, but that can grow tiresome over the course of a week.
So, being the Irish woman I am, I decided to mix all of my leftovers together and make myself a shepherd’s pie of leftovers.
And it was a f**king delight.
