I do this every year with the Thanksgiving leftovers. These freeze well and are a big hit.
This is what I had left over this year. Any other leftover ingredients can be used. In past years, I have had carrots, corn, sweet potatoes, you name it. Sometimes you need to make some extra gravy, veggies or potatoes to flesh out the potpies if you are lacking in leftovers in one category.
Take ovenproof bowls or large ramekins and grease them with butter. Warm gravy in saucepan, making sure you have about 1/2 cup of liquid for each potpie. Layer other ingredients, except for stuffing, in bowls and mix slightly. I usually fill all the bowls together a little at the time so I get an even mix of ingredients. Ladle gravy over the top and place leftover stuffing on top as a crust. Bake for 15 minutes at 450 degrees F. Serve hot or freeze for a taste of Thanksgiving anytime.

This sounds like a terrific idea! We're down to just 2 most holidays now and I just reheat and reheat until we're sick of the whole thing and then start over again for Christmas! This is a much better idea.
