I may be a little eccentric when it comes to Thanksgiving dinner. I seriously can not get enough of all of the traditional Thanksgiving recipes. You would think by the time we go to my in-laws and my family’s Thanksgiving, I’d be sick of it–but not me! The week of Thanksgiving I always make sure and make extras of my favorite recipes (mashed potatoes, yams, rolls, turkey, etc.) and either freeze some for later or keep extra on hand to enjoy the next several days. In case you are like me and still have leftovers floating around, I thought I would share my favorite casserole I make out of our leftovers. There is nothing fancy about it. In fact, it’s not even a recipe, but for some reason when you put it all together, my kids think it’s a new meal (score from me from having to cook!). I would love to hear some of your favorite recipes you use with your leftovers. Feel free to leave a comment and give me some ideas for all the turkey in my freezer! 🙂 Have a great day!
- 3-4 cups mashed potatoes
- 1-2 cups turkey gravy
- 3-4 cups cooked stuffing
- 1/4-1/2 cup dried craisins (optional)
- Spread the mashed potatoes onto the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish. Pour the gravy over the potatoes. Spread the stuffing mix over the gravy. Place the stuffing mix evenly over the potatoes and gravy as best you can. Sprinkle with craisins. Bake at 350 for 25-20 minutes, or until the dish is warmed through. Serve warm.
