Leftover Turkey and Sage and Onion Stuffing Casserole Recipe

Without a doubt, we will have some leftover Turkey this Christmas. We love cooking and eating it but as we shop locally and the smallest size is enough for 8 – 10 adults and we are just 4 there is bound to be more than enough. That means between Christmas and New Year we get inventive with Turkey and come up with a few different family meal ideas to make. This Simple and Easy Turkey and Stuffing Casserole Recipe was a real hit last year with everyone so I thought I’d share it with you.

This casserole recipe is quick to make and then can be baked in the oven for 30 minutes for dinner. It’s really warming and if we’ve eaten all of the stuffing I can just use a box of it to add instead.

This recipe makes enough for 8 so we can heat up some the following day or make when the in-laws or my parents come and visit after Christmas as well.

The gravy is really simple to make and one that you can easily make with either chicken or turkey stock.

We use frozen green beans in the recipe but tinned or even fresh would work as well.
