Recipes for Thanksgiving Leftovers

Nov 26, 2012


I always make a 20-24 pound turkey just so I will have plenty to make our favorite leftover dishes.  Depending on when you made your Thanksgiving Dinner this weekend you might still be wondering what to do with those leftovers.  Here are a few ideas………………. Click the recipe title to see them at 

Best of Thanksgiving Casserole
Line bottom of baking dish with leftover turkey and top with leftover gravy.  Layer with leftover homemade dressing topped with leftover mashed potatoes.  Thinly slice a Tablespoon of butter and dot over casserole.  Reheat in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until heated through.  Serve hot.
