Day After Thanksgiving Turkey Casserole


Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. I love beings surrounded by family, friends, and good food. And one of the best parts of Thanksgiving is having leftovers after the big meal. A family-favorite casserole at our house is this recipe for my Day After Thanksgiving Turkey Casserole.

Adapted from Taste of Home Tastes Like Thanksgiving Casserole


  • 4 cups leftover mashed potatoes (or you can buy frozen steam-in-the-bag mashed potatoes and substitute those)
  • 3 cups leftover stuffing
  • 2 cups leftover brocolli (or frozen brocolli pieces) or green beans
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 4 cups cubed cooked turkey, chopped
  • 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup sour cream, divided
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • In a large bowl, combine the stuffing with the broth. Transfer to a greased 13x9-in. baking dish.
  • In the same bowl, combine the turkey, soup, garlic powder, and 1/4 cup sour cream; spoon over stuffing mixture.
  • Mix the cream cheese, pepper, salt, and remaining sour cream together with the mashed potatoes and spread over turkey mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until heated through.

You can also add other leftovers to the casserole that your family likes. Corn would be good in this casserole too. For extra crunch, mix together 3/4 cup breadcrumbs and 4 tablespoons of butter and add to the top before baking.

What's great about this recipe is that you can make it any time of the year! For instructions on how to make it when you don't have all of those leftovers on hand and other substitution ideas, you can check out my turkey casserole recipe.
