Leftover Turkey and Stuffing Casserole - A great meal for the day after Thanksgiving. You can incorporate your leftover stuffing, turkey and whatever vegetables you have too!
If you are anything like me, the day after Thanksgiving, the thing you have the most leftovers of are vegetables. We usually have broccoli, carrots and/or corn leftover. This dish is great for the forgotten vegetable leftovers too because you can just throw them in there.
I got the idea for this casserole from a recipe I found called Chicken Cheddar Stuffing Casserole on Taste of Home and I thought to myself, chicken? What the heck, this recipe has got Thanksgiving leftovers written all over it.
From my leftovers I was able to make a 9x9 pan of Leftover Turkey and Stuffing Casserole AND a batch of my Leftover Turkey Sliders. Which is awesome because that means I don't have to hit the grocery store right after Thanksgiving.
I've got two days of meals already in my fridge. As you can imagine, I always buy a turkey that is way too big and I prepare about double the amount of sides that I need. I secretly do this because I know I am going to want the leftovers.
The only thing we almost always have slim leftovers of is mashed potatoes. We've got some serious mashed potato addicts in this house. If you do find yourself with leftover mashed potatoes and want to transform them, you can try my Mashed Potato Patties.
Leftover Casserole Options
Okay back to this casserole, sorry, I wanted to make sure all your leftovers were covered. Here we go. If you are super healthy and don't go for the canned condensed soups, you could totally just use some leftover gravy in place of the condensed soup. I would just add a little milk to it to help make it creamy.
For the cheese, I went with an extra sharp cheddar. You can really use whatever your cheese of choice is. Any old cheddar would be fine, but extra sharp is how I roll.
If you've used my Sausage and Cranberry Stuffing recipe, then you'll have done yourself a favor because that means this casserole will also have the tart cranberry flavor incorporated and the heartiness of the sausage. Yum! I can't wait for Thanksgiving!
