Thanksgiving Leftovers Casserole ❦ Macaroni Turkey Bean and Beer Bake

Ahh...the aftermath! After a busy Thanksgiving here at casa Castro, I really love having turkey leftovers. Living in the U.K. has never stopped me from celebrating one of my favourite holidays. You can take the girl out of America...but you can't take America out of the girl, or so the saying goes. Here it is just a regular Thursday and nobody has the day off. Hubby is

still working and the divas are at school. I on the other hand am in my element. I started my turkey hunt early this year, but unfortunately you can not get a fresh turkey at any supermarket in Britain until late November, early December. I had to go the frozen route.

Every year we have plenty of leftovers and each time I make a different leftover dish. This one is everyone's absoulute favourite. It uses leftover turkey and my famous stuffing. I add a few pantry staples and literally this bad boy is on the table in under 30 minutes. Perfect after a busy post Thanksgiving, non-day off weekday or a fuss free Boxing Day. I hope it becomes one of your favourites too.

Enjoy xoxo
