Unsure what to do with all of those Thanksgiving leftovers? While most people will have heard of putting them to work in a casserole, a breakfast casserole might be a new idea. By using leftover turkey, gravy, and stuffing, this breakfast casserole comes together in a cinch with just a few extra ingredients tossed in. This dish is perfect for feeding a crowd, which means family and friends get another dose of the amazing Thanksgiving spread the next day.
4 cups leftover stuffing
6 large eggs
1 cup leftover turkey gravy
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups leftover turkey, diced (about ¾ lb.)
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage
4 ounces mild white cheddar, grated (about 1 cup)
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease a 2- or 3-quart casserole dish.
Crumble stuffing into large chunks on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake about 15 minutes to remove moisture. Cool slightly.
Whisk together eggs, gravy, cream, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl until combined.
Arrange the leftover stuffing in a layer in the prepared casserole dish. Next, layer on the turkey, sage, and cheese. Pour egg mixture over top and let stand for 10 minutes. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until golden brown and set. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

I made this today and it turned out pretty good. I had leftover Chicken, gravy, sausage stuffing and broccoli taking up valuable refrigerator space so I gave it a shot. It went together easily. Next time I might add more of my favorite seasonings to the chicken layer such as granulated onion and garlic powder. I also found that you can add nearly any leftover vegetable to it such as green beans, spinach, asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower and even corn if you like a little sweetness. If you like your food spicy adding hot sauce to the egg mixture or sprinkling some on after its done will kick it up a notch. I cut the salt in half as my sausage stuffing and the cheese already had plenty. This is a very good basic recipe that you can easily customize to your own tastes.
