This All-In-One Thanksgiving Casserole recipe is made with everyone’s holiday faves — turkey, stuffing, green beans, sweet potatoes, cranberries — and drizzled with a quick homemade gravy. Perfect when you’re craving Thanksgiving food but don’t want to make a million different dishes.
For those years (oh hey, 2020) when you might not be feeling up for cooking your usual dozen Thanksgiving dishes — or hey, those days any other time of the year when you find yourself craving those nostalgic holiday flavors — I have a fun and simple new recipe for you to try.
Meet my All-In-One Thanksgiving Casserole. ♡
It’s basically exactly what it sounds like — a cozy, hearty, festive casserole that celebrates everyone’s favorite Thanksgiving dishes. It is made with a classic mix of turkey (or you can choose to use chicken or omit the meat entirely), herbed sourdough stuffing, sweet potatoes, green beans and dried cranberries. Then while the casserole bakes up to hot and golden perfection in the oven, I recommend whipping up a quick batch of mushroom gravy (or whatever kind of gravy you love best) to drizzle generously atop each serving. And in just a small fraction of the time it usually takes to prepare your Thanksgiving dinner, a beautiful and delicious bowl of this Thanksgiving casserole will yours to enjoy in no time!
As we all know from years and years of piling our plates high on Thanksgiving, the brilliance of these traditional dishes is that their flavors all pair perfectly together already. So, you know, just think of this casserole as that colorful plate already deliciously overlapping and ready to go!
As always, feel free to play around with this recipe too and make whatever ingredient substitutions sound best. (For example, you could swap in all sorts of other veggies, or make a few easy changes to make the casserole gluten-free or vegetarian.) Or if you happen to be making this casserole after Thanksgiving, you can also use the recipe as a guide for how to turn those leftovers into a delicious casserole too.
Bottom line, anytime you find yourself craving those nostalgic flavors of Thanksgiving…but maybe don’t want to spend the entire day doing the usual Thanksgiving cooking marathon…this casserole is here for you, friends. ♡♡♡
