An American succotash-style bake recipe to transform your Christmas turkey leftovers into something brand new – with just a few ingredients.


  • 450g small potatoes, diced
  • 25g butter, cut into little pieces, plus extra for greasing
  • 350g cooked turkey (leftovers from Christmas or bought from the supermarket deli counter)
  • 1 carton New Covent Garden Food Co Spicy Corn Soup
  • 75g bread (we like Vogel’s Mixed Grain Brown Bread)


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Blanch the potatoes in boiling water for 8-10 minutes, until just tender. Drain well and put into a buttered ovenproof dish.
  2. Roughly cut up the turkey and add to the potatoes. Pour in the soup and mix well.
  3. Whizz up the bread to make breadcrumbs and scatter over the top. Dot with the butter and bake for 25 minutes until golden and bubbling. Serve with garden peas.
