Tired of the same old turkey yet?
If you are looking for something to spice up those turkey-day leftovers, you’ve come to the right spot!
Last year I shared with you a simple recipe for potato pancakes, using leftover mashed potatoes. And for that leftover turkey, I shared a quick recipe for turkey barbecue.
This year I used some of our leftovers to make what I’m calling “Thanksgiving Casserole.”
It’s pretty easy.
- Spray a 2 qt. baking dish with Pam cooking spray. (By the way, if you want to know how much is in one of those cans, check out this funny post.)
- Then add leftover mashed potatoes. (I had about 2 cups I used.)
- Mix 1 cup of leftover stuffing, 1/2 cup or so of gravy, and shredded leftover turkey (I had about 1 1/2 cups) together. Then layer this on top of your potatoes.
- Cover and stick it in a 350 degree oven for 25 minutes.
I’m thinking if you have leftover veggies they would be pretty good in this, too. For more of a Shepherd’s pie type of dish, put the potatoes on top.
If you don’t feel like eating it right now, you can wrap it and freeze it for a future quick dinner (which is exactly what I did; I love having a fast meal on those days where you just don’t have time or energy to cook).
Do you have a recipe using Thanksgiving leftovers that you want to share?
