Thanksgiving is almost here! It’s hard to tell if we like the holiday meal better, or all the leftovers meals that follow. Today, I’m sharing my favorite of our leftovers dinners (other than turkey soup)…it uses four different Thanksgiving foods (all of which I make from scratch)! I’ll be honest, though, and admit that I always end up making a fresh batch of mashed potatoes for this recipe, because we never have leftovers of those! Also, the amounts are fairly flexible, so if you have a little less stuffing, or a little more turkey, you can still make it work.
- 4 cups leftover prepared stuffing
- 3/4 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
- 4 cups leftover cooked turkey (about 1 lb.)
- 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
- 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
- 2-3 Tbsp. Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9×13 pan. Spoon in stuffing, then top with cranberry sauce and turkey.
Combine mayonnaise with cheese. Evenly spread 1/2 of the mayonnaise mixture over turkey. Top with potatoes, then evenly spread with remaining mayonnaise mixture. Sprinkle with bread crumbs.
Bake 40 minutes or until golden brown and heated through. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
