Reviews for Tastes Like Thanksgiving Casserole
"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!"
"Omygoodness this is a wonderful casserole. I did, however not bake the casserole... I was at work and I put it all together in a crock pot and it turned out AH-mazing!!! Thank you!!!!!"
