Leftover Turkey and Stuffing Bake

Leftover Turkey and Stuffing Bake

Ingredients

  • 2-3 cups chopped cooked turkey or chicken
  • 1 can cream of celery or cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 package herb stuffing, croutons, or box of stuffing mix, or leftover stuffing
  • 4-8 Tbsp butter*
  • 1/2 cup water or chicken broth*
  • 1-2 cans or 1 small package frozen green beans
  • 1 cup of dried cranberries
  • Shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
  • chopped celery (optional)
  • chopped onions (optional)

Directions

  1. Place turkey on the bottom of a greased casserole dish. Layer beans on top of turkey. Mix soups with milk, onions (if using them, cook in the microwave with some butter for a minute, it softens them up), celery and cheese and pour over beans. Make stuffing and put on top of the soup mix: If using dried croutons or stuffing, melt butter and mix with broth or water. Mix this with the stuffing.
  2. *VARIATION—if using boxed mix, prepare mix as directed including flavor packet and don’t use the listed amounts above. You may want to use less butter and less water for a more crunchy topping.
  3. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. If using frozen beans you’ll need to bake longer, possibly at 375. You may add 2 cups of noodles to stretch the recipe.
