I am a lover of the casserole – I’m one of those people that likes to put a little bite of everything on their fork at once, and so a casserole seems a perfect way to make that happen! Last week, I shared Chicken Da Bomb with you, now let me introduce to you my Tastes Like Thanksgiving Turkey Casserole recipe. This recipe is PERFECT for Thanksgiving leftovers or anytime of the year when you crave Thanksgiving.
Originally from Taste of Home, this turkey casserole includes a few twists and shortcuts that I’ve made to suit our tastes and likings. If you like mixing your turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving, you are going to LOVE this turkey casserole!
Tastes Like Thanksgiving Turkey Casserole
- 6 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks or for a time saver, buy the steam-in-the-bag potatoes and substitute those!
- 1-1/4 cups chopped celery (or not...we leave it out)
- 3/4 cup chopped onion
- 1/2 cup butter, cubed
- 6 cups unseasoned stuffing cubes
- 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 4 cups cubed cooked turkey...or if you don't have any cooked turkey, stop at the deli counter and ask them for a thick slab of turkey breast. Now that I think about it, chicken would be good in this too.
- 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 3/4 cup sour cream, divided
- 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
- Preheat oven to 350Â°.
- Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender.
- In a large skillet, saute celery and onion in butter until tender. Remove from the heat.
- In a large bowl, combine the stuffing cubes, poultry seasoning and sage. Stir in broth and celery mixture. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
- In another large bowl, combine the turkey, soup, garlic powder and 1/4 cup sour cream; spoon over stuffing mixture. Drain potatoes; mash in a large bowl. Beat in the cream cheese, pepper, salt and remaining sour cream; spread over turkey mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.
- Bake, uncovered, at 350Â° for 30-35 minutes or until heated through.
Sounds great doesn’t it?! You can substitute chicken for the turkey if you’d like, and add a couple of cups of broccoli to the recipe too.
