TYLER, Texas (KLTV) - If you have leftover ingredients from your Thanksgiving dinner, or if you just don’t want to make a huge dinner but want some of the flavors of that meal, this casserole will be perfect!

If you don’t have leftover turkey, you can use a rotisserie chicken. You can also adjust as desired to add some cooked diced sweet potatoes, chopped green beans instead of green peas, etc. You can also leave off the pecans, if you prefer not to use nuts.

Thanksgiving dinner casserole by Mama Steph

  • 4 cups seasoned stuffing cubes (In the video I used Pepperidge Farms but it wasn’t the cubed kind, and it wasn’t as good, to be honest. See if you can find the Orowheat cubed cornbread dressing for best results.)
  • 4 cups chopped cooked turkey
  • 2 celery stalks, stringed and finely chopped
  • 1 cup frozen peas, cut green beans, or other favorite green vegetables
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt (I used Tony Chachere’s Cajun seasoning)
  • 4 eggs
  • 10 ounce can cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 can (8 ounces) cream-style corn
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped pecans

Method:

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9x13 casserole dish with butter or cooking spray.

2. Place dressing cubes across the bottom of the pan, then top it with the meat.

3. Spread the celery, peas, onion, and seasoned salt over the meat.

4. Add the cranberries, if using.

5. In a large bowl, add the flour, milk, eggs, soup, and corn, and whisk well, Pour over the ingredients in the dish.

6. Allow to sit for 15 minutes. Then, top with chopped up butter and the pecans. Cover the casserole with foil.

7, Bake for 30 minutes.

8. Uncover and bake for 30 to 35 more minutes or until a knife inserted in the center of casserole comes out clean, not wet.

Enjoy!
