Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the seasoning packet from the stuffing, hot water, and 1/4 cup butter until butter is melted. Stir in stuffing just until moistened. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the celery and onion; cook and stir until tender. Mix in the cooked turkey, and season with celery seed, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
  4. Spread a layer of stuffing over the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Top with the turkey mixture, then spread a layer of mashed potatoes over everything. Cover with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until heated through.

I was looking for a recipe for my lunch box using up the Thanksgiving leftovers. I used my leftover roast chicken, homemade dressing and mashed potatoes. My dressing was well seasoned so I left out the onion, celery seed and garlic. I also added a few tablespoons of homemade chicken broth over the dressing, a few pats of butter on top of the potatoes and a layer of frozen green beans (precooked in boiling water until almost done to make sure they would be fully cooked in the dish). I usually get tired of leftovers after 2 or 3 days but looked forward to this at lunchtime for the whole week. This one stays in my recipe file.

I made my own stuffing and mashed potatoes, and although the taste was good, it was a little on the dry side. Perhaps a little chicken broth added to the turkey mixture would have helped. Or maybe a layer of cranberry sauce between the potato and turkey layers??? It certainly would be super easy if you used a box of stuffing and a tub of prepared mashed potatoes which I know is what the recipe writer intended.

At first I was turned off by everything all together but, when I tried it I was floored! It's everything I love in one bowl and FANTASTIC!! It was easy and fun to make. Thanks so much for the post! Everyone should try this one! I only changed two things about this recipe - I left out the celery because of personal taste and also left out the celery seed and garlic seasoning because I used Jennie-O Cracked Pepper seasoned turkey and it didn't need anything else.
