Cooked Turkey 1.5-2 cups finely diced up or ground ( I used the meat grinder attachment for my kitchenaid mixer)
Cranberry Sauce 1/2 cup ( homemade if possible)^
Mashed Potatoes- 2-3 cups or 1 box of instant
Gravy- 1/2- 1 cup*
Stuffing - 1-3 cups ( you can use boxed or homemade. Below I used boxed as my husband ate all the homemade)
Creamed Corn- 1 can
Preheat oven to 350F
Grease casserole dish. Place ground turkey in botton the dish. It should completely cover bottom. Place blobs on cranberry sauce on top.
Next place mash potatoes and smooth then cover with gravy
Put stuffing on top of that. I didn't have too much stuffing left but I spread it out the best I could.
The cover with creamed corn and spread out.
Place completed casserole in the over for 20-40 mins depending on how warm you want it to be.
If you like to have a crispier style of casserole with the potatoes on top then put
turkey, cranberry, stuffing, creamed corn, gravy, then mashed potatoes.
^How to make cranberry sauce
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1 bag of fresh or frozen cranberries
Boil water and sugar together in a small pot. When it comes to a boil, add the cranberries. They will start to pop. Allow to slowly simmer for 10-15 mins, then remove from heat and allow to cool. For this casserole you only need 1/2 a batch of this so 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 water and 1/2 bag of cranberries
I boiled the turkey carcass when I removed the meat for about 2 hrs. I then strained out the chunks and had broth left over.
2 cups of broth
2 tbsp bistro gravy mix
1 bag of new/ baby potatoes
1/2 cup sour cream ( low fat or fat free)
Salt and Pepper
I love how easy mashed potatoes are to make when you leave the skin on.
Quarter the potatoes and boil until you can stick a fork into them easily. Use a masher and mash them up. Add the sour cream and salt and pepper to taste. This makes creamy tasting mashed potatoes without a lot of added fat.
