This is a great concept of a recipe - Thanksgiving in a casserole dish! I tweaked it to use what we most enjoy at the holidays (green beans instead of green pepper and celery; stuffing instead of corn bread and onions) and it's even better. Definitely a recipe to try and then alter a bit to include your family's favorites - and that makes it 5 stars!

- 1 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce
- Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add onion, bell pepper, and celery blend, and sauté 8 minutes or until tender. Combine sautéed vegetables, cornbread, turkey, and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Toss gently. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 11" x 7" baking dish. Cover to keep warm.
- Meanwhile, heat potatoes in microwave according to package directions. Stir in remaining 1 Tbsp. butter. Spread 1 cup cranberry sauce over turkey mixture. Top with potatoes. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
