Crock Pot Farmers Pie is an easy casserole to throw in the slow cooker that everyone loves. Great as an everyday meal and also a delicious way to use Thanksgiving or Holiday leftovers!
Today I am sharing a slow cooker recipe that my family LOVES. They ask me to make it all. the. time. I made this again tonight and Mikey actually called home from work to find out if it was “really true that you’re making Farmer’s Pie for supper tonight?!?”
Crock Pot Farmer’s Pie
Now you can make this any number of ways depending on what you have on hand or what leftovers you want to use up. It is sort of a spin on a shepherd’s pie.
You start out with a layer of dry stuffing mix and pour your soup mixture over top.
Then you add your turkey or chicken, then veggies and top with mashed potatoes. Now, you are going to want to wait to put on your cheese until about 5-10 min before time to serve.
Comfort in a bowl.
A Few Notes:
- I have used both 4 qt and 6 qt slow cookers to make this dish. As with any new recipe, I always recommend that you make it for the first time when you have time to adjust the cooking time as needed for your unit.
- While I used green beans and corn, feel free to use whatever veggies you enjoy.
- If you don’t have leftover turkey, you could always use a grocery store rotisserie chicken.
- If you don’t have leftover mashed potatoes on hand, you might consider using refrigerated pre-made mashed potatoes from the grocery store.

Do you fix stove top stuffing according to directions before placing in crock pot.
Don John says
I don’t know if I did something wrong but the dressing was bone dry just as I had put it into the crockpot. Did I miss something? I thought the stuffing should of come out like cooked stuffing. Should I have used some water or something on the bottom? Over all the taste was good.
Hi Don- Did you spoon the soup mixture over the stuffing? The stuffing should have absorbed the soup moisture and all other cooking juices. If you would like a more moist end result you could also add 1/2 cup broth during the soup step.
Yes I did spoon the soup over the stuffing mix. I will try the broth next time. Should the broth be mixed with the soup to thin it?
Yes. You could even add up to a cup I would think without losing too much texture. Let us know how it goes.
Sounds so good! Reading your comment on the casserole crock, I think you just solved my dilemma on the chicken and rice today…was more like rice ‘mashed potatoes’ Told my grandson it was creamy rice when actually it was way over cooked! Can’t seem to get things right yet, either cook too much and too fast or my scalloped potatoes cooked way over and still some weren’t done 🙁 Love the crock but need to figure it out more I guess…what recipes do you have using the casserole crockpot?
In the ingredients for this recipe you list 1 cup frozen corn. When you say, add corn, should the corn still be frozen or thawed? I know some recipes call for frozen ingredients to to be added while still frozen, while others call for them to be thawed before adding.
It would be very helpful to amateurs like me if you were to state, “Add corn, (thawed)”, or Add corn, (still frozen.)
Enjoy your recipes,
The corn goes in frozen. We will always tell you if we want you to do an extra step like thaw the corn. Hope that helps! Enjoy!

This looks like something I would love and would make anytime of year not just with thanksgiving leftovers. Thanks for sharing.
Absolutely! We love it anytime. Enjoy!!
Did you use the Crock Pot Casserole cooker for this? Sounds yummy!
I haven’t tried it but it should work. You might just have to adjust the time. You may also need a little extra potatoes to fully cover the casserole. Enjoy!
I love that it’s a take on Shepard’s Pie, and a special one at that. Since the new Casserole Crocks are considered a 4-qt., I was wondering if the listed ingredients would be enough to fill it; or would the expanded 9X13 space be too much (and in that case, may have to increase some ingredient quantities). Just curious if anyone has tried this in a casserole crock as of yet. I’d love to try this one. Sounds like one of the most comforting of comfort foods.
I haven’t tried it in my casserole crock, butit should work, might just take less time with it spread out. My guess is you would probably need more mashed potatoes to top properly and maybe more cheese. Enjoy!!

This sounds great! Pinned!
This sounds so delicious,I will make this with Thanksgiving left overs,thank your super recipes
Is that Stove Top and if so do you use the seasoning pack?
If your stuffing comes with a seasoning packet then use it. My mix came with the seasoning pre-mixed in. Enjoy!
I have a similar recipe but I use 1 container of sour cream and 1 can of cream of chicken soup and I use broccoli as the vegetable. It becomes a favorite of anyone that tries it.
Sounds great! We will have to try that!
At our house, we call this “left over casserole” which is made generally after a big family dinner. Instead of the soup, we use left over gravy. The cheese topping is a delicious idea! IF we have left over potatoes we use those, if not then instant potatoes. But reading this (as our oven broke and we bake in the crock pot now), I am wondering if maybe homemade or canned biscuits would work. What do you think, Chris?
That might just work! Let us know how it goes.
