Turkey Casserole Leftovers Recipe

One of my favorite things after every holiday meal has got to be the leftovers. If you've made our Perfect Turkey Recipe, you might need leftovers. This recipe is something that was shared with my father almost 20 years ago and we have made it numerous times every year without fail (heck, we randomly cook turkeys throughout the year just to have a casserole). This recipe is something that my family has made for years and in fact, we even make extra food every year so we have a lot of casserole. I cannot remember a year when we did not make Leftover Turkey Casserole. We hope that this Turkey Casserole Leftovers Recipe inspires you.

Turkey Casserole Leftovers Recipe


  1. Boil the egg noodles until they are completely done in lightly salted water. Drain the noodles and toss with a little olive oil. Next, line the bottom of your baking dish with the freshly cooked noodles.
  2. Cut up the leftover stuffing and turkey into small chunks and toss with the gravy.
  3. Place stuffing, turkey, and gravy over the egg noodles in your baking dish. Add a small dollop of butter spaced apart about every 3 inches on top of the dish. Finally, top with breadcrumbs, if desired (we don't always use breadcrumbs). I happen to like the original recipe with the breadcrumbs a little better; something is pleasing about the crispy texture that breadcrumbs add to the dish.
  4. Bake the casserole for about 45-50 minutes at 350 degrees. Let stand 10-15 before serving. This helps to thicken up the gravy and makes a hearty meal.
  5. Enjoy! We hope that you loved our Thanksgiving Leftovers Turkey Casserole Recipe.

    This is a great idea for holidays and year-round. I know I struggle to find creative ways to make my kids (and husband) eat leftovers!

    I shouldn’t be reading recipes at this time of the evening because that looks absolutely delicious and my stomach is starting to growl.
    I might toss some sweet peas in there too.
    Great family recipe! Thanks
