    • SERVES

      • 12


    • 1 package Essential Everyday pie crust
    • 1 package Essential Everyday Roasted Garlic mashed potatoes
    • 1 can Essential Everyday Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce
    • ½ cup cooked Essential Everyday green beans
    • ½ cup cooked Essential Everyday corn
    • Essential Everyday Homestyle Turkey Gravy

    1. Preheat oven to 350F and lightly grease a muffin tin.
    2. Roll out the pie crusts and cut into 4” diameter circles, using a cookie cutter.
    3. Press each circle into a muffin tin. Place a parchment muffin liner inside of the crust, then fill with pie weights (otherwise the crust will puff up when baking).
    4. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned, then remove from oven and remove pie weights.
    5. Carefully remove the pie crusts from the muffin tins and place on a baking sheet.
    6. Prepare the mashed potatoes according to package directions.
    7. To assemble, pipe in a small layer of mashed potatoes, then cranberry sauce, then green beans and corn, followed by another layer of mashed potatoes on top.
    8. Turn oven to broil and broil the mini casseroles for 1-2 minutes, just to lightly brown the mashed potato topping.
    9. Heat the gravy in a saucepan. Top each casserole with gravy and fried onions before serving.
