Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole

I wasn't really sure what to call this one. It is 100% made up by me. I had no clue what I was doing while I was concocting it, I was just throwing random leftovers together. And then I got nervous, because what if it tasted awful and I just wasted all that food? That didn't even end up being a problem...this turned out really good! Kinda sweet, but not too much and lots of good flavor. So I'm really happy with how this turned out.

I may be the only one.

I'm okay with that.

Although hubs did have seconds. And thirds. Just sayin'...


Totally ignore the crescent rolls and pretend they're not there. Add in leftover mashed potatoes in their place. I don't know what I was thinking when I was staging this photo...

...Stuffing Mix (yes. I used boxed. I ran out of the homemade stuff, and didn't have the time or ingredients to make more...)
...Turkey, shredded or chunked
...Mashed Potaotes


In a large bowl combine together the stuffing, cranberries and turkey. Place into an oven safe casserole dish, and then spread mashed potatoes over top of the stuffing mixture. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, or until heated through.

What a great idea, and a fabulous way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers! We just did sandwiches, nothing terribly unique. Great idea!

I love me some craftiness with leftovers! This sounds amazing. And who can go wrong with Pillsbury crescent rolls?! ;)

We ate at my mom's and inlaws - didn't get leftovers from either. This sounds so good - makes me wish I could host dinner next year!
Ilove a mixture like that. All my favorites.

I'm working with leftovers this week as well. Sometimes you just have to be crafty (and a tad bit sneaky)! I would love for you to join me for Crock Pot Wednesday. Come check it out.

YUM! That actually sounds really good! I've staged photos before and COMPLETELY left out ingredients, or put the wrong ones in. *sigh* It's exhausting ;-)

I love, love, love tossing random ingredients together to see what comes out, usually these are some of my favorite dishes. But, i get that anticipation too.. that queasy "oh man.. what if this is awful and I just wasted all that food and people think i can't cook and oh mah hell, what was i thinking!" :-) kinda feeling ;-)

Glad you linked up! I LOVE new recipes
