Reviews for Tastes Like Thanksgiving Casserole
"A definite do again. My husband does not like stuffing but he loved this."
"This was a great filling Fall/Winter meal. I divided the recipe when trying it for the first time. We thought it was so good that next time if there are enough leftovers I will make the full recipe and freeze half."
"Really delicious but very heavy."
"I made this tonight far dinner, loved it. I used mashed sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes and stuffing mix. Next time I may add some veggies."
"Delish! The whole family loved it! We added a can of English peas but everything else was the same."
"I assembled and froze this last November using my Thanksgiving leftovers. It was a real treat to defrost and bake on a blustery April day! I divided it approximately in half and used an 8 x 8 square pan, I would say that size serves 4-5. I even had a can of cranberry sauce in the pantry. The only thing I feel it needs is some kind of vegetable layer. Next time I will make sure to save some green bean casserole or carrots to add to it. Other than that it's perfect!"
"My family and I loved this casserole. I will make again."
"FABULOUS! I too used a box of stuffing, didn't make the stuffing, just dumped it into the bowl and added the sage and poultry seasoning and then the broth, etc. And I did use the leftover mashed potatoes from yesterday's meal, adding the cream cheese, sour cream, etc; as written. It makes a LOT, so next time I will cut everything in half, or make two smaller casseroles, one to eat and one to freeze. But this is my new go to recipe from now on!"
