This is a great recipe. I made it twice. The first time I adapted it to make a festive looking meal for the vegetarian clients of our soup kitchen. I started with Stovetop Cornbread stuffing, prepared as directed then added sautéed celery, onions and grated carrot and pressed it into the baking pan as a crust. I added a layer of chopped Portabella mushrooms which I sautéed with onions and mixed with Italian cheese blend. The top was mashed potatoes, piped into rosettes. This was the first time I felt we presented a vegetarian meal equal to the regular meal. The second time I made it as per the recipe, but using leftover stuffing and a frozen vegetable mix with leftover turkey. The mayo made it moist and enhanced the flavors. The topping was a bit scant because there was only a small amount of left over mashed potatoes. I served it with homemade cranberry relish and no one whined about leftovers.


I cooked my "make-ahead" turkey gravy this weekend, so I added extra turkey wings, and used that meat to make half of this recipe. This takes minutes to assemble, and it gets two thumbs up in this house. I had some concerns about the addition of mayo, but I think all is did was add some moisture, but none of its flavor. I can see making this with leftover chicken as well as turkey throughout the year. Great new casserole that will be recycled often here!


I was actually surprised I liked this as much as I did. I did lighten it up by using Kraft reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese, Kraft Olive Oil Mayo, and making the stuffing with only 1 TBS of butter. I also added a tsp of poultry seasonings (recipe from this site) to the mayo-turkey-vegetable mix. Garnished the top of the casserole with green onions as well as the paprika. This is a good recipe to use up Thanksgiving leftovers.
