This Layered Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole is an easy and delicious way to use up leftover turkey, stuffing, potatoes, and green beans. This casserole has been a tradition in our family for many years.

Thanksgiving is my family’s favorite holiday, perhaps because it’s the kickoff to the holiday season. We keep things pretty simple for our Thanksgiving dinner because I find my kids like having exactly the same meal every year. Plus, I’m the one doing all the cooking.

Layered Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole - this has been a family favorite for years - so easy and a great way to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner for another meal

This Layered Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole has been a tradition in our family for many years. Immediately after everyone’s done eating, and cleanup is in progress, I put a big pot of water on the stove and make turkey stock using the turkey carcass. Then, I assemble this casserole, layering all the leftover Thanksgiving sides and turkey.

The next day, all I have to do is pop the casserole in the oven, warm up some gravy, and dinner is ready. My kids love this idea, and it’s so easy.

This Layered Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole is just one great way to use up Thanksgiving leftovers. If you’re looking for more ways to use up your Thanksgiving turkey and leftovers, check out these recipes which are on the lighter side from some of my fellow foodie friends.
