  • 1 14.1- ounce package refrigerated pie crust (2 crusts)
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 4-5 ounces thinly sliced or shredded turkey or chicken 1 ½-2 cups
  • 1 ½ cups stuffing
  • ½ cup cranberry sauce
  • 8 ounces shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 egg for egg wash
  • fresh thyme
  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F. Position a rack on the lowest level of the oven. Place a sheet pan on the lowest rack while oven is preheating. Place a sheet of parchment paper, about the size of your sheet pan on a large cutting board.
  2. Open both pie crust packets and unroll. Sprinkle a work surface with about a tablespoon of flour and spread it out with your fingers. Place pie crusts on the prepared work surface, one on top of the other. Roll the doubled pie crusts out to a 14-inch circle. It's fine if your circle is not perfect. This is a rustic tart. Slide the pastry onto the prepared parchment paper lined cutting board. Don’t worry, it will be a little larger than your parchment paper at this point.

  3. Spread mashed potatoes over the circle of dough, leaving a 3-inch border around the edge. Cover potatoes with sliced turkey, then top turkey with stuffing. Sprinkle half of the cheese over the stuffing. Fold edges of dough over the fillings to create a border, pleating as needed.
  4. Combine egg with 1 teaspoon of water and whisk together till well combined. Brush egg wash over all exposed edges of the crust being careful to keep egg wash off of parchment paper. If some of the egg wash does drop onto parchment paper, just wipe it off with a damp paper towel.
  5. Return pan to lowest shelf in oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and top with remaining cheese, keeping cheese off of the crust.
  7. If cranberry sauce is thick, thin it out with a little water and stir well to combine. Dollop cranberry sauce over cheese, spreading it out a bit but leaving areas of cheese exposed.
  8. Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then top with fresh thyme leaves. Slice in wedges and serve.
