My 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.
- 2 cups dressing
- 2 cups cooked turkey or chicken, cubed
- 2 cups cooked vegetables
- 1 cup turkey or chicken gravy
- ½ cup whole berry cranberry sauce
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 11 X 7 casserole with non stick cooking spray.
- Spread dressing in bottom of pan. Combine meat and vegetables, spread over dressing.
- Combine gravy and cranberry sauce. Pour over all.
- Bake for 45 minutes, until heated through.
It is so hard to believe Christmas is right around the corner. I have so much left to do!
