Another great way to use leftover turkey.


Dressing: Gravy:


Mix turkey with dressing. Put in 9x13 inch pan. Make gravy. Don't make gravy thick; should be rather thin. Pour over dressing and turkey in 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 375 degrees F until dressing is slightly browned, about 35 minutes.

Let's face it. We are usually fed up with turkey and ham by the time Christmas has finished. I know that I don't even like to see it in the fridge but there it is staring me in the face every time I open the fridge door.

To use up every bit of your turkey, put it in your green bean casserole! I freeze the leftover turkey, both cut up and those bits left on the bone, wait a week after Thanksgiving, and make a new casserole with the turkey in it! It works well with chicken, as well. This way, your family won't say they're tired of the green bean casserole. A real time AND money saver!

Butter an average-size casserole dish. Put a layer of dressing on the bottom. (Stove Top works fine.) Add a layer of turkey meat, sliced or in pieces. Add a layer of steamed broccoli. Add one can of cream of mushroom soup, undiluted. Bake in 350 degree F oven until heated through. A microwave oven works fine.

Optional: Top the casserole with buttered bread crumbs.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Here are some recipes for using your Thanksgiving leftovers.

Turkey Leftover Casserole I

When packing up the leftovers from the Holidays, make a couple of "Turkey Casseroles". Spray the casserole pans with non-stick spray, put cooked turkey in the bottom and top with gravy; next add a layer of carrots; or other leftover veggies (brussel sprouts are not a good idea); a layer of dressing (stuffing), and top with a layer of mashed potatoes. Push down slightly and cover with plastic wrap.


I put the lid on the casserole and wrap it again to avoid having to look for it when you warm it up. Pop it in the freezer. To reheat - Thaw in the fridge all day and heat for about 1 hour at 325 degrees F. Just make sure it is HOT in the center before serving. It's like a Mini-Turkey Dinner! Enjoy.

Turkey Leftover Casserole II

Here's another recipes from a jar of Heinz turkey gravy.


  • 2 1/2 cups prepared mashed potatoes
  • 2 cups cooked shredded turkey
  • 1 (12 oz.) jar of turkey gravy (or about 1 1/2 cups of leftover gravy)
  • 1 cup prepared stuffing
  • salt and pepper to taste


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Place potatoes in a 2 qt. casserole dish that has been sprayed with non-stick spray.

Combine turkey and gravy in a large skillet and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in stuffing until thoroughly mixed. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Spread the turkey mixture evenly on top of potatoes. Cover and cook for 25 to 30 minutes.
