November is Leftover Month with Kraft®Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday. Don't you love walking into a house filled with the scent of a golden roasted turkey? The scent of cinnamon and pumpkin wafting through the house? The sound of fallen leaves crunching under your feet? And, most importantly, family. Laughter, love, thankfulness to be together on this special day.
We all have leftovers after our Thanksgiving feast, right? Well, Kraft(R) came up with a recipe to use some of those goodies that will feed a crowd.
The recipe makes 10 servings, so for my hubby and me, I scaled it down by about half, though I did use a whole box of stuffing (my favorite Thanksgiving side). It was yummy, and so, so easy. I had it in the oven within 15 minutes.
I did three things differently, though. Because our favorite Stove Top stuffing is the cornbread flavor, I used that. And because I had leftover gravy, when it was plated, I poured some of that over the top. That just took it to another level for me. And I baked it at 350 degrees for about an hour. My goal was to try to get the stuffing a little crusty....and it worked! An added bonus was that the potatoes and cheese on top got a nice browned "crust", too.
I was afraid the mayo would be a bit much as I was mixing it with the turkey and vegetables. I was wrong...what it did was make the middle layer nice and moist, with really no discernible mayo flavor. And I did use mayo rather than Miracle Whip....a personal preference in this house. So don't be afraid of the quantity called for in the recipe.
Give this recipe a try! After alllll that time spent in the kitchen on Thanksgiving and the days before, it's so nice to have a delicious dinner in the oven within 15 minutes that the family will enjoy.
