  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the seasoning packet from the stuffing, hot water, and 1/4 cup butter until butter is melted. Stir in stuffing just until moistened. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the celery and onion; cook and stir until tender. Mix in the cooked turkey, and season with celery seed, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  4. Spread a layer of stuffing over the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top with the turkey mixture, then spread a layer of mashed potatoes over everything. Cover with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until heated through.

Love that it used up my holiday leftovers. I added cranberry sauce slices between the turkey and the potatoes. Yum.
