The Great Thanksgiving Dinner Leftovers Casserole
Topic: Recipes

If yours is like so many households, it's two days' past Thanksgiving and you still have wrapped containers with turkey pieces and leftovers from all those side dishes you made. Now--if you wrapped and refrigerated them faithfully right after dinner on Thanksgiving, they are fine to use today (2 days later) in a casserole.

And what a simple solution this is!

Prep a baking pan with spray oil. Choose a size to accommodate your amount of leftovers.

Start with leftover stuffing as the bottom layer. Build up strata-style from there with your sides: sweet potatoes, green beans, corn-you name it (even if they were originally casseroles themselves, just layer them in). Cut turkey pieces into bite sized portions and put a generous layer in, also any potatoes you may have. Then pour gravy over the whole thing, 

 

Bake at 350 degrees about 45 minutes until completely heated through. Remember the food safety rule: Internal temperature for previously heated foods should always be 165 degrees. 


 

It will be more appealing once it's baked and plated! And maybe there's a little leftover pumpkin tiramisu somewhere in the refrigerator waiting for you too!
