So, maybe I’m spoiled, or deprived, (one or the other… right?) but I don’t usually have Thanksgiving leftovers (we go to my parents and in-laws every year)… Well, once we had it at my house, but I sent all the leftovers home with my guests . So when given the task of “what to do with those leftovers”, it kind of stumped me! But then I asked an amazing chef friend of mine, who is blessed to have a husband that cooks even better than she does! This is one of the many things they do with their leftovers:
Leftover Turkey (about 1 cup)
Leftover Green Bean Casserole (about 2 cups)
Onion Soup Mix (1 package)
Leftover Gravy (about 1/2 cup)
Leftover Mashed Potatoes (about 3-4 cups)
The great thing about this dish, is just throw in what you have… if you have tons of turkey left over, and not a ton of casserole, that’s great too!
Shred the turkey up and add it to your green bean casserole, with a package of dry onion soup mix, leftover gravy, and about 1/2 a cup of water. Stir together and put in the bottom of a 9×9 pan (or casserole dish if you have lots of leftovers!) and put the mashed potatoes over it. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, or until slightly brown on top.
