Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole

Thanksgiving Leftovers CasseroleMy husband and I had a very quiet Thanksgiving. I cooked a 17 pound turkey, so we have lots of leftovers. (I already have the dark meat cubed and frozen, since neither of us eats it except in casseroles.) I really limited the side dishes this year-just dressing, cranberry sauce and a green bean dish using the beans from our box. (I’ll post that recipe next week.) Last night, I used the leftovers to make a casserole. Casseroles are a great way to use up bits and pieces! The advantage of making a casserole was that the leftovers stayed really moist. I used my leftover green beans for this casserole, but you could probably use other vegetables instead.
