Ultimate Thanksgiving Left-Over Casserole
recipe by Tina Hudgens
1/2 cup Gravy
1/2 cup Chicken Stock or Chicken Broth
I used a 9x13 pan (yes we had that much left over), but however much you have left. If there is enough for an 8x8 pan or smaller that would work just fine too. First spread the mashed potatoes in the bottom of the pan. Just as they are (cold from the refrigerator). Next take 1/2 the stuffing and mix it with your cranberry sauce. We used our homemade whole cranberry sauce, but whatever you have. The can stuff will work. Then spread the stuffing on top of the mashed potatoes. Next is the turkey; layer your left over turkey, I just shredded it with my hands and layed it all over the top of the stuffing. Top it with the other half of your stuffing. Then pour on top the gravy and chicken broth (I did this because I didn't want it to get dried up and it DID NOT... so I guess this trick worked)! Cook in the oven for about 1 hour and serve hot.
We all LOVED it... I even took some to a friend the next day, I guess that is serving left-overs as left-overs again. Kinda funny! She said it was so warm and comforting. So, I think this is a WINNER!
Now, we just have to have LEFT-OVERS to create this recipe again! I will be doing this again the day after Christmas with our Christmas dinner left-overs (I will make extra to make sure there is enough).
