I would imagine that by now, most of us already have our Thanksgiving menu planned and our grocery shopping done (or pretty close to it). So I thought I would share some recipes for casseroles made with leftover turkey.

Even though I always buy the biggest turkey I can find, I usually do not have all that much meat left over from the big feast. I always give guests “care packages” to take home so they can enjoy leftovers too. For myself, my main craving after the feast is a hot, open-faced turkey sandwich with gravy poured over it. You don’t need a recipe for that.

And the carcass traditionally gets used for a pot of turkey soup with dumplings. But every once in a while I make a turkey casserole, which is probably one of life’s greatest comfort foods.

I hope you and your family all have a very special and meaningful Thanksgiving Day. May I take this opportunity to tell every one of you that I am thankful we are such good kitchen buddies...
