Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. In 3-quart saucepan, mix stuffing, turkey and gravy. Cook over medium-high heat until hot, stirring constantly. Spoon into ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish.
  • 2
    Unroll dough; cut dough crosswise into 4 rectangles (if using crescent rolls, press perforations to seal). Place rectangles over stuffing, leaving space between rectangles for steam to escape.
  • 3
    Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until crescents are golden brown. Serve topped with cranberry sauce.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Purchase a jar of turkey gravy to have on hand just in case there’s none leftover.
  • tip 2
    Don’t skip the step of heating the stuffing, turkey, and gravy together before you put it in the casserole dish. It’s important to have the mixture hot to get the crescent dough to bake thoroughly.
  • tip 3
    Just in case all that delicious Thanksgiving gravy gets gobbled up, purchase a jar of chicken gravy to have as a backup for making this casserole.
  • tip 4
    Not enough leftover cooked turkey? You can substitute cut-up cooked or rotisserie chicken or canned chicken instead.

More About This Recipe

  • Stuffing or dressing--what do you call it? Depending on where you live or what your family calls the moist, flavorful side dish, it means the same thing. Stuffings (or dressings) are usually highly seasoned mixtures of bread cubes and vegetables and may (or may) not contain meat. There are so many ways to change dressing! Whether it’s the bread you use (or it could be rice or potatoes), the vegetables and the seasonings. Try this other great turkey leftovers recipe for turkey pizza.
