Leftover Creamy Turkey Casserole

Leftover Creamy Turkey Casserole

I have to admit, I'm a recipe addict. I love checking them out, collecting them, trying them.  Although, I tend to collect a whole lot more than I actual make them, it's a fun little addiction. I'm sure we're all looking for delicious recipes at this time of the year. Recently, I tried a Creamy Turkey Casserole that calls for ingredients that you'd typically have leftover from the holidays. This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

I'm really impressed with how it turned out and how simple it was to make.

Totally tucking this into my giant pile of recipes. It's a keeper!

What I really loved about the delicious casserole recipe that I got from their club is that it uses up a ton of leftovers and re-creates something that tastes like the holidays with a twist!

 I am convinced that the secret to this amazing casserole is definitely Hellmann's Mayonnaise.  leftover turkey casserole being spooned out of casserole dish  

I was surprised recently to learn how moist and tender it can make poultry.serving of stuffing casserole on a plate with cranberry sauce  

Look at this dreamy meal? And all from leftovers which can get boring real quick. It's like magic.

Who would have thought? For this recipe, a layer of the mayo and whole berry cranberry sauce is mixed together and  spread over the turkey. Then a little more is used to mix with mashed potatoes along with some mozzarella cheese.

Now, although this recipe is for 6 servings, apparently my husband thinks it's more like 3. Be prepared for this to be gobbled up. You might want to make three!

Absolutely! Just might want to break it down a little so it mixes in better. ;)
