Leftover Turkey Casserole {Recipe}

We had our little family Thanksgiving with just the three of us about a week late, which is okay by me. Actually, we did the big Thanksgiving thing with my uncle and aunt and her family on the holiday itself and kinda put-off our own dinner at home out of laziness on my part. A few days ago we went ahead and cooked-up the turkey and had dinner with all the fixins', mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, etc. Since there's only the two-and-a-half of us there was a whole bunch of leftovers! After a search on the web for a good casserole to make with the leftovers turned up nada I decided to make my own! Both Mark and Jace loved it, hopefully you will too. Here are the tasty results:

Leftover Turkey Casserole
Recipe by Sam B.
Ingredients:

2 cups cooked turkey
1-2 cups mashed potatoes, prepared (I used leftover homemade, but boxed will do)
1-2 cups frozen (thawed) or canned mixed veggies
1 box stuffing, prepared (ie- Stovetop)
1 can cream of chicken condensed soup (can substitute turkey gravy)

Preheat oven to 350° F. Line pan with layer of aluminum foil for easy clean up. (I used an 8"x8" pan to make a smaller casserole. If you go with the larger measurements of ingredients, best to use a larger pan.)Spread mashed potatoes in a layer on bottom of pan. Chop turkey into small pieces and layer on top of potatoes. Follow with a layer of mixed veggies. Mix soup with about 1/2 cup milk and pour over veggie layer. Top with a final layer of stuffing. Cook at 350° F for about 20-30 minutes, or until stuffing begins to brown and get crusty. Top with cheddar cheese, if desired. Voila!
