Shepherd’s pie is often made with lamb or mutton, but it lends itself well to leftover turkey and mashed potatoes from the Thanksgiving table. You could also mix in leftover vegetables from the previous day’s spread.

Beverage pairing: Joseph Drouhin Rully Blanc, France. An unpretentious dish like shepherd’s pie with turkey calls for a wine that’s simple, thirst-quenching, and refreshing. A village white Burgundy, with its lemony, mineral, and floral notes, will be an unassuming but satisfying companion.
