The day after Thanksgiving is never as low-key or relaxing as I hope it’ll be, and I don’t even go shopping!
Though it’d be nice to have a day of vegging in front of the TV after the all day cook-a-thon, family tradition (ie: the kids) dictates that the Christmas tree and decorations MUST. GO. UP. RIGHT. NOW. And over the years (and the accumulation of a lot of crap– er, decor) it’s become a longer and longer process.
Thankfully, Black Friday dinner is low-key. I take advantage of all the leftovers in the fridge, but instead of serving the same meal we just had yesterday, I created a one-dish meal that everyone loves.
As you can see, it’s as easy as can be. Using ramekins (mine hold 14 ounces) or a 13×9 casserole dish, line the bottom with a layer of mashed potatoes.
On top of the potatoes, put a layer of chopped turkey.
Drizzle some delicious leftover gravy on top of the turkey.
Top off the whole thing with stuffing.
Bake uncovered in a 350° oven for about 40-45 minutes.
For the last ten minutes, I drizzle about a tablespoon of melted butter per ramekin (or half a stick for a casserole dish) on top of the stuffing, which gets it really nice and crispy.
Serve it with leftover rolls, cranberry sauce and a nice salad. It doesn’t get any easier!
