Wordless Wednesday…Thanksgiving Leftovers Redux


It didn’t take long for us to tire of turkey, dressing, and the rest of our delicious Thanksgiving leftovers!  


We’d sent guests home with doggie bags and yet we still had enough for several meals. 


When in doubt… make a casserole!!! A friend made this years ago and  I decided to give it a try!!! After reading several recipes online, I threw everything together and we loved it. 

Here’s a link to one of the recipes. I used leftover dressing, corn casserole, turkey, green bean casserole, cranberries, and some extra corn, and topped it with the leftover mashed potato casserole I’d made (I added more sour cream). It was topped with cheese and baked! 


We loved it!!!!

Our personal Thanksgiving was delayed a couple of days but the turkey found a lot of friends, even after the wait.

Good morning Kathy. With shrewd planning on the size of the turkey, our leftovers are gone. That said we did not have a corn casserole on the menu and and you mention of one, has my mouth watering. Enjoy your day.

Wayne Martin We had a 20 pound roasted turkey and two smaller smoked turkeys!!!  I don't want to see turkey for a while.

Good morning Kathy,

I'd say you came up with a good way to put a twist on Turkey leftovers! Good for you..it does look delicious!

Dorie Dillard Austin TX it was easy to make. I layered everything (plus some sour cream and chicken broth) and it was selicious.

Kathy, The last leftover was a turkey pot pie, and now we won't be seeing any turkey here again until next Thanksgiving!

Hi Kathy... that sounds like a very interesting and tasty recipe. I use leftover turkey for casseroles, but as I don't have stuffing or mashed potato or corn casserole I use noodles and add in veggies.

Nina Hollander, Broker this is the only time of year when there's stuffing in the house! LOL  I love noodles and anything!

Kathy Streib me too, Kathy. I'm all about the noodles.

I made a turkey pot pie for dinner last night - I cooked up some veggies, made a cream sauce, added turkey and topped it with a piece of puff pastry (which I did not make!) - we still have a little turkey left.  I am so done with turkey like the rest of us are!

Lise Howe one of my favorite things to make is chicken or turkey pot pie!!!   And no, I too, do not make the crust.

Hi Kathy, 

I don't like to waste food but I think I am done with the leftovers.  I have enough for one more meal.  I like your twist for enjoying the leftovers in a different way.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® I too don't like to waste food but you can only freeze so many things. I loved the casserole.

Kathy in all the Thanksgiving I have lived through, we have never made a casserole with the leftover, but I love the idea and will mention it to my wife.

George Souto our good friend made one years ago and I'll never forget it. This one was so easy!  I especially loved layering the cranberry sauce in it.

That is pretty creative but I am on the fence as to whether I would like it or not, haha.  I would give it a taste though.

I tired of turkey last Sunday.  Thank goodness I was able to freeze a lot of it into TV dinners for future use.  The casserole looks really good, Kathy.

Hi Kathy,
I enjoy leftovers. I was watching an episode of The Kitchen the other day, and they had some interesting recipes for leftovers.
