Ingredients and Variations

Turkey – Cut leftover turkey into cubes or shred it. Chicken, ham, and even ground Italian sausage make a delicious casserole!

Veggies – Fresh or leftover green beans, corn, broccoli, peas, mushrooms, or even a frozen bag of mixed vegetables can be used. No gravy? Use a can of mushroom soup!

Potatoes – Use leftover or ready-made mashed potatoes. Even leftover mashed sweet potatoes will work if you have them, or why not mix them both together?

Variations – Cooked egg noodles or brown rice can be mixed with stuffing if mashed potatoes aren’t available. Sprinkle on a little parmesan or shredded mozzarella cheese for a melty, bubbly topping!

How to Make Turkey Casserole

Leftover turkey casserole is as traditional as the turkey dinner itself! Just mix, layer, and cook!

  1. Saute celery, onion, and seasonings in butter.
  2. Combine the onion mixture with turkey, vegetables, and gravy in a casserole dish.
  3. Spread mashed potatoes over the turkey mixture and then top with stuffing.
  4. Drizzle with butter and bake until lightly browned. Let rest for about 5 minutes before serving.

Serving Suggestions for Turkey Casserole

Serve leftover turkey casserole with candied carrots, roasted butternut squash, green bean casserole or bacon wrapped brussels sprouts for another festive feast! Or maybe just a simple green salad with a tangy vinaigrette, plus some fluffy dinner rolls for a simple yet delicious dinner. Don’t forget the yummy Snickers pie for dessert!

Tips for Leftovers!

Keep leftover turkey casserole in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze portions in air-tight containers in the freezer for up to 3 months. To freeze an entire cooked casserole, bake it in an aluminum foil-lined casserole dish. Once the casserole is cooled completely, fold over the aluminum foil and freeze. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating in the oven.

  1. If I’m going to make this ahead, freeze it and then cook and serve it at a later date, do I fully bake it before freezing or prepare the dish up to baking it and then, bake it once it is thawed?

    1. Hi Amy, We have not tried freezing this casserole but I would prepare it up to baking and then freeze. Since basically everything is pre-cooked you are basically just heating through and browning in the final step. Let us know how it turns out!
