Thanksgiving Leftovers Breakfast Casserole
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

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease a 2- or 3-quart casserole dish.

  2.   Crumble stuffing into large chunks on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake about 15 minutes to remove moisture. Cool slightly.

  3. Whisk together eggs, gravy, cream, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl until combined.

  4. 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.
