I wish there were more than five stars to rate this recipe accordingly! I'm a big fan of casseroles, so this one really takes the cake in my book. Not only was it DELICIOUS and easy to make, but it helped me to use up almost all of my Thanksgiving leftovers. Another honorable mention is the fact that my *usually* picky husband LOVED it. I made the recipe more efficient for myself by using instant mashed potatoes combined with my leftover "real" ones, added in my sausage dressing leftovers with the Stovetop Stuffing that I mixed up, and combined my dripping gravy with a pre-made jar. I also added some fresh sage into the layers of potatoes and the gravy. Now, rather than dealing with several containers in my fridge and wondering whether they'll be eaten or spoil first, I need only reach for this one yummy dish. Thanks so much, Ann!

This was just OK. I used Heinz turkey gravy from the jar. It tasted really bland for some reason, which surprised me since Stove Top stuffing is not bland. My son (8) ate his portion, but my daughter (6) refused to eat hers due to everything being layered. It would probably taste better with some additional spice but I don't know if I'll try this recipe again to find out.

Why not go all out? Throw in a thin layer of leftover cranberry sauce (jelly or berry) between the turkey and potato topping (I had about 2/3 cups and put mine on top of the gravy), it was AMAZING! Recipe is excellent just as it is, but adding the cranberry made it extraordinary!

I didn't even bother with the mash potato step as I had leftover mashed potatoes in the fridge! I just layered the casserole like the instructions stated (with the leftover cold ingredients) and baked. I served this with other leftover vegetable sides and extra gravy. Excellent way to make a quick dinner after a long day at work for a ravenous family.

My husband ate half of this for dinner. I made it with Tone's instant turkey gravy mix, homemade mashed potatoes, Thanksgiving turkey and Brownberry sage and onion stuffing mix - made with chicken broth and butter. Very good I'll make it again. I think he liked it better than Thanksgiving.

I found this recipe excellent. I made no changes and we all loved it. If some people found it bland maybe they should change their gravy recipe.

Every time I cook a chicken or turkey, I make this with the leftovers. I have not met a single person who hasn't loved this the next day.

AWESOME! I will never worry about getting all the food ready & hot at the same time again! I took this as a "side-dish" since we were going to a rustic cabin for Thanksgiving. It was a HIT! I used boxed everything: Turkey stovetop, potato buds, canned gravy. I did cook a turkey a couple days before & used the meat from that. Made two pans: One for us & one for my husbands office. You scoop out what you want and pop it in the microwave. So easy. I'm making it again for Christmas.
