Leftover Mashed Potatoes and Turkey Casserole

Total Time

A lovely way to use hard-to-reheat potatoes and gravy, and good alternative to the same-old leftovers after Thanksgiving. Someone should try it with bacon bits under the cheese.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • About the following in a casserole dish

  • 2 cups shredded turkey (bite-size)
  • 2 cups poultry gravy
  • 2 cups mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup cheese, of your taste (I like cheddar)


  1. Put the ingredients in the order given, layered: turkey, gravy, potatoes, and cheese. Try not to squish the potatoes into the gravy, but this is a casserole, so there isn't any worry if you do a bit. The cheese adds a nice bite and flavor, so try not to skip out on it.
  2. Cover and Bake 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

i thought this was great! I didn't have a whole lot of time for dinner prep and after peeling and boiling the potatoes it was practically done! The only thing was, we are not HUGE eaters but this was only about 3 servings for us. I did use a small casserole dish but the 2c covered it perfectly. Well thanks!!

My kids didn't like the way it looked and one refused to even try it. It turned into a mush after being cooked, like a stew. However it tasted very good and my husband LOVED it. We tried it half with cheese and half without. It was very good both ways but better with the cheese.
