Terrific Tuesday, with a recipe!

Thanksgiving is a time of abundant foods gracing tables for the week.  Hellmanns mayonaise is showing commercials again this week featuring recipes using mayonaise and Thanksgiving leftovers.

Turkey Casserole
  • 4 cups leftover prepared stuffing, divided
  • 4 cups coarsely chopped leftover cooked turkey (about 1 lb.)
  • 3/4 cup Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise, divided
  • 1/4 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
  • 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (about 6 oz.)
  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Spray 8-inch baking dish with no-stick cooking spray. Spoon in 2 cups stuffing, then top with turkey.
  2. Combine 1/4 cup Hellmann's® or Best Foods® Real Mayonnaise with cranberry sauce; evenly spread over turkey.
  3. Combine remaining 1/2 cup Mayonnaise, potatoes and cheese in large bowl. Evenly spread on turkey, then top with remaining 2 cups stuffing.
  4. Bake 40 minutes or until heated through. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. If desired, garnish with dried cranberries

How do you eat Thanksgiving leftovers?

My favorites?  I could eat smoked turkey sandwiches until the turkey is all gone. 
I also just love to eat the leftovers as they were at dinner, until they are all gone.  Yummm.  So tasty!


  1. I'm with you.  I absolutely love  left over turkey sandwiches.  That casserole would not work for us because of the dressing = gluten.    How come a Terrific Tues. post on Monday 

  2. @oldfatgramma -  I am getting ahead of myself.  I felt like blogging today!!  I'm sure you could find something to replace the dressing?I just love that it has mayonnaise in the recipe!!  (I think Paula Deen is secretly my Mother .)

  3.   I would love to but GF bread is more like cardboard even when it is fresh!
