It will be here before we know it, what you may ask? Thanksgiving! Do you have your menu planned out yet? I know I am still finalizing mine. I know turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes are a must for our turkey day menu. While the turkey day feast is delicious there is one thing that is better, the leftovers! Do you ever get a rut and not know what to do with your Thanksgiving leftovers? How about putting everything together for a Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole? I have to thank Kraft and Allrecipes for this idea, I had never thought to put all my leftovers together this way and my husband agreed it was a great idea. Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole can be easily modified to your own personal taste. You can bump up the flavor with your favorite holiday seasonings, swap the miracle whip or mayo for plain greek yogurt or even swapping the stovetop crust with homemade stuffing. Top your Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole with turkey gravy and some cranberry sauce on the side.
