Turkey Zucchini Casserole: A Recipe for Leftover Turkey

Turkey Zucchini Casserole | #recipe #leftoverturkey #Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is the biggest dinner of the year. With the biggest dinner of the year comes lots of leftovers. I know I’m not alone when I say we always have tons of leftover food from our Thanksgiving feast, especially turkey. And of course, eating regular leftovers gets old after a day or two, so I have to get creative when it comes to finishing them up. I hate throwing out food, so if I’m not planning to freeze leftovers, I have to make sure I incorporate them into other dishes that I know my family will eat. One of my favorite recipes to use up leftover turkey is this Turkey Zucchini Casserole.
