Thanksgiving Leftovers Recipe Series
5 of 5
The last recipe we are going to share is a Thanksgiving casserole. Casseroles are great because they feed the whole family as well as using the rest of your leftovers. After all, a lot of love goes into a Thanksgiving meal, throwing out food is not an option.
Using your leftovers to create a casserole is not only delicious, but economical. The great thing about casserole is having the ability to adjust the flavors and ingredients to your liking (or what's left in your refrigerator). To complete the meal, try serving with leftover dinner rolls or a homemade side salad.
1 cup leftover turkey
1.5 cup leftover mashed potatoes
1.5 cups leftover stuffing
½ cup cranberry sauce
1 cup gravy
1 cup cheddar cheese (or your cheese of choice)
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease a glass 8” x 8” pan. Spread the stuffing evenly on the bottom layer. Layer the turkey on top of the stuffing. Spread cranberry sauce on top of the turkey. Spread mashed potatoes on top. Add cheddar cheese. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the cheese is golden brown. Remove from the oven. Add parsley and gravy.
