The Best Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes

The big feast may be behind us, but we’re still feeling really grateful because…LEFTOVERS!  

Who would’ve guessed all the delicious parts that make up our Thanksgiving dinner, would be great combined together?! Definitely not us. Yet, here we are, combining all over leftovers together into one glorious drool-worth casserole. Plus, since everything is already cooked, all you have to do is throw your leftovers into a dish and stick it in the oven!  

Thanksgiving in a Pan 



  1. First, put stuffing in a greased baking dish. Then, top with turkey, beans, gravy and pepper.
  2. To end, cover and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until heated through.

Tastes like a delicious holiday dinner but without all the work!

Now, we know this one is kind of bizarre- and not all of you will like it. But, for those of you who like bizarre dishes, it’s perfect. If you really want to take this to the next level, try dipping your patties in leftover gravy. Yummm.
