I made this up when DD had her wisdom teeth out. She wanted a turkey dinner similar to Thanksgiving in June!! I needed to use up all the leftovers so this was it!! You can use boxed stuffing if you need to, you would need 2 6oz packages of seasoned stuffing mix. You can make this ahead very easily...just remember the cooking time will be extended

I made a few changes to the recipe which is one of the nice features of this recipe--you can be quite flexible. I had 6 cups of stuffing, used 3 cups of turkey, leftover green bean casserole instead of the frozen mixed vegetables, used the mayonnaise and sour cream instead of yogurt. I used leftover turkey gravy instead of the cream of chicken soup and cream. I layered the ingredients as per the original recipe. I did find that a 9" square pan held the ingredients quite well. There is one problem with the recipe. It doesn't tell you how long to bake the casserole or at what temperature. I tried 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Its a great way to use up your Thanksgiving leftovers.
