Leftover Turkey Casserole is one of our favorite post turkey dinner dishes! Leftover turkey, gravy and veggies are topped with mashed potatoes and stuffing, then baked until hot and bubbly. Topped with gravy, this casserole is almost better than the turkey dinner itself!

Whenever we make turkey dinner, we make sure to cook plenty so that there are leftovers. Easy and delicious sides like green bean casserole and bacon wrapped brussels sprouts round out this classic dinner and are perfect for leftovers too.

At the end of dinner, I always seem to have a little extra turkey, stuffing and gravy. I love these leftovers because I turn them into a delicious casserole, something easy to prep! But more times than not, the mashed potatoes are gone.

In the absence of leftover potatoes, I reach for Bob Evans Garlic Mashed Potatoes! Not only are these mashed potatoes extra creamy and full of garlicky goodness, they save me some serious time in the kitchen!

How To Make Turkey Casserole With Leftovers

  1. Start by sautéing the onions in butter and poultry seasoning. Make sure you don’t brown the butter and onions, just cook them until they are translucent.
  2. Add the shredded leftover turkey, green beans, corn, and gravy in a casserole dish. Pour this mixture over the bottom of a casserole dish.
  3. Spread Bob Evans Garlic Mashed Potatoes over the turkey mixture, then follow with prepared stuffing.
  4. Drizzle melted butter over the entire turkey stuffing casserole and bake for 30 minutes or until browned.
  5. Serve with additional gravy and cranberry sauce.

I love making this turkey stuffing casserole as single servings! Use french onion soup dishes or similar oven safe dishes, and layer the ingredients as the recipe calls for in a normal casserole.

Personal servings are great if you are trying to keep your portion sizes in check, and kids love them too! Just make sure you adjust the bake time accordingly, because the smaller dishes will cook faster.

Can You Freeze Turkey Casserole?

This is a perfect freezer meal! Prepare the casserole as directed and cover tightly with plastic wrap or foil. This casserole can remain in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Allow the casserole to thaw completely in the fridge, then bake uncovered at 350˚F for about 30 minutes or until heated through. If it remains a little bit frozen, it may take longer to heat completely so use a meat thermometer to be certain. Once an inner temperature hits 160˚F, your casserole will be ready.

Can You Reheat Leftover Turkey Casserole?

If you are lucky enough to have any of this casserole left, you can definitely keep it for another meal! Cool it completely, cover tightly and store in your refrigerator for 2-3 days.

To reheat you can either:

  • Warm in a 325˚F oven covered with foil for 15 minutes, then remove foil for another 10 minutes.
  • Heat individual portions in the microwave for 1-2 minutes depending on the wattage of your oven.

Season with salt and pepper and serve with prepared gravy – you will never know it has been reheated!

What Can I Serve With Turkey Casserole?

This leftover potato casserole is delicious served all by itself, but you can’t go wrong serving it with Candied Carrots or Roasted Butternut Squash on the side. Don’t forget the dinner roll!

  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!
