I’m just going to blame everything on Cornbread Dressing until the holidays are over.  The minute I had my first bite of dressing at Thanksgiving, I’ve been craving casseroles. Rice, noodles, cream sauce, mushrooms, green peas, leftover turkey, more cream sauce, cheese, more cheese. Surely you are picking up what I’m putting down by now. In this casserole dream there are no points involved, so my apologies to folks on Weight Watchers. Do not follow my bad, bad, bad example. I promise to get back on the wagon…after I eat the leftovers.

First up:Pioneer Woman’s Turkey Tetrazzini

The beauty about this recipe is it allowed me to recycle the leftover turkey I had from Thanksgiving.  I didn’t stray too far from the recipe, so for the directions just click on the link above. Here is a glimpse at some of the ingredients I used (not all are represented, btw):


Next up? Ahem, butter.

Next Up? Mushroom Casserole from 101 Cookbooks

The beauty of this dish (beyond how delicious it is) is the fact that this is completely vegetarian. It involves cottage cheese, which worried me a bit, but I have to say that this was one of the best casseroles I’ve had in quite some time. Just click on the link above for the full recipe. I have some process shots, but I figured the end result might be the most important photo to include here. We had some friends over for dinner last night and 3/4 of this dish disappeared in a matter of minutes. Seriously…Make. This. Dish.



Here’s to hurrying up with the leftovers so I can find that wagon I seemed to have abandoned. I promise I’ll be better. After this weekend. Happy Saturday!
