Thanksgiving Leftover Casserole

I know I have already told you all how much I love this time of year.  Can I just tell you once again?  I love it… and last night was proof that this is a wonderful time of year.  Ronnie’s High School Football Team played their first championship game of the season and it was a shut-out.  The weather was perfect and the game was even better.  Now the countdown is on for Thanksgiving.  I have been busy planning appetizers, a new stuffing recipe, debating what soup to serve.  But I have to tell you, in our house, I am not sure if  we enjoy the Thanksgiving meal or the Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole.

I love reinventing leftovers and this may be our absolute favorite reinvention.  It’s so easy and the combination of flavors are amazing!  There is just something about the creamy mashed potatoes mixed with the crunch stuffing and the pop of corn.  Oh and don’t forget the gravy, yep, it’s in there too!  Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole is a true crowd favorite Around the Family Table.  Sometimes we even invite friends over for a casual get-together over the weekend.

I will warn you, Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole is not very kind to your oven if you overflow like I did!

Every year I try a new dish with our leftovers, but so far nothing has compared to our love for my basic leftover casserole. There is a big debate in our house if it is even better then the original meal. :)

There is nothing more comforting than a casserole. I love that you added all the leftovers.

Easy, quick and all the best of Thanksgiving dinner!


Erin @ Dinners, Dishes and Desserts November 18, 2012 at 8:56 am

What a quick and easy recipe to use up just about everything!


Megan @ I Run For Wine November 18, 2012 at 9:03 am

I love this recipe Isabel!! We are headed down south for Thanksgiving but I may convince the family to make this on Friday! Hope you and your family have an amazing Thanksgiving and see you soon!


Kayle (The Cooking Actress) November 18, 2012 at 9:10 am

Yum! I love how this is exactly Thanksgiving all in one casserole.


Paula @ Vintage Kitchen November 18, 2012 at 9:37 am

This recipe will sure use up every single leftover! Fast and easy, perfect for the day after. Happy Sunday Isabel!


Jen @JuanitasCocina November 18, 2012 at 10:06 am

This is exactly what we make after Thanksgiving! We call it “mess”…because it’s such a mess. And everyone loves it!


Amanda @ MarocMama November 18, 2012 at 10:14 am

We’ve often made something similar and it’s always a hit. My favorite part is when the stuffing on top crunches up a little bit.


CJ at Food Stories November 18, 2012 at 10:16 am

I must confess … I am not a leftover person … until Thanksgiving rolls around and then I’m all over it :-)


Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers November 18, 2012 at 10:23 am

What a fabulous idea! I love it!!


Susan 30A EATS November 18, 2012 at 10:26 am

Your dish is sure to be a hit with the entire family! What a terrific use for leftovers at Thanksgiving!


Susan November 18, 2012 at 10:50 am

It’s like a 5-layer dip for Thanksgiving sides, this is great Isabel!


Patti November 18, 2012 at 11:04 am

You had me at mashed potatoes mixed with corn! Love this!


Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious November 18, 2012 at 11:17 am

What a wonderful way to use up leftovers! I love that everything is thrown into a casserole dish!


Wendy (The Weekend Gourmet) November 18, 2012 at 11:40 am

All my favorite Thanksgiving flavors in one gorgeous dish! I could eat a big plate of this for sure!


Bobbi's Kozy Kitchen November 18, 2012 at 12:11 pm

Sooooo perfect!! I love it!


Heather @girlichef November 18, 2012 at 2:15 pm

I love that you just layered everything and baked it together in all of its goodness. Sounds deeeelicious!


Martin D. Redmond November 18, 2012 at 2:17 pm

Ok…my mouth is watering (is not PC to say drooling;-) over the photos and this great recipe. And it’s easy too! My kind of recipe!


Conni Smith November 18, 2012 at 3:51 pm

What a great way to put all of those leftovers to use, and the casserole looks amazing!


Sarah Reid, RHNC (@jo_jo_ba) November 18, 2012 at 5:15 pm

That is one heck of a casserole!


Sheila Fretz (@CookUnderwriter) November 18, 2012 at 6:25 pm

Love this casserole. It’s a fabulous way to get all of the Thanksgiving leftovers all used up


Carla November 18, 2012 at 7:28 pm

Oh great idea to repurpose everything! It’s almost like a brand new dinner ;)


Dara November 18, 2012 at 8:28 pm

Yum! All the best of thanksgiving in one dish.


Amy Kim (@kimchi_mom) November 18, 2012 at 9:36 pm

sometimes i think that thanksgiving leftovers are better than the big meal itself!

this casserole sounds sooooo good!


The Wimpy Vegetarian November 19, 2012 at 2:02 am

What a wonderful theme for this week, Isabel – thanks so much!! And I love your casserole – it’s a perfect way to enjoy the best of Thanksgiving again :-) Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!


diabeticFoodie November 19, 2012 at 7:24 am

Now this is comfort food!


Jennie @themessybakerblog November 19, 2012 at 8:09 am

I love that you incorporated several leftovers into one dish. It looks amazing! Happy Thanksgiving, Isabel. I love this time of year, too!


Lane @ Supper for a Steal November 19, 2012 at 8:42 am

Great way to use up a bunch of leftovers. I could see making a few of these and freezing them for quick dinners.


Sarah November 19, 2012 at 9:50 am

Isabel, I don’t know why I never thought of doing this? This is so perfect and easy to make. You have the whole Thanksgiving dinner in one bite. I love this idea.


Anne @ Webicurean November 19, 2012 at 12:30 pm

What a great idea! I love that you get all the Thanksgiving flavors together in every single bite!


Liz November 19, 2012 at 6:00 pm

Oh, yeah. My hubby would LOVE this…all his favorite parts of the Thanksgiving meal in one! Great idea!


Brianne @ Cupcakes & Kale Chips November 20, 2012 at 5:57 am

I could totally see my mom loving this casserole – while I like to keep my foods all separate on my plate, she likes to mix them all together.


Faye Leong November 21, 2012 at 7:35 am

You have a great reinvention idea, Isabel. All those leftovers ingredients are perfect for Casserole….Yummy! Thanks for sharing with us.


Martin D. Redmond November 24, 2012 at 3:16 pm

I made this today Isabel – It’s so good! Definitely a keeper. Funny, I didn’t make my typical quart of gravy this year, so I had to whip some up to add in…but totally worth it!
