Gluten Free Thanksgiving Casserole

Imagine your Thanksgiving dinner, layered and baked lasagna style.  The stuffing, the turkey, the potatoes and the gravy.  I even snuck in a few green beans, in a nod to the green bean casserole!

You can make each layer from scratch for a casual take on the traditional Thanksgiving meal or throw it together the next day with your Thanksgiving leftovers!

Inspired by the “Thanksgiving in a Bucket” craze from years ago, this layered casserole takes the idea to a whole new level and makes an impressive presentation.  Oh, and it’s completely gluten free!

Finishes and Garnish

 Put it All Together!

Assembly is a snap.  Coat a casserole dish with cooking spray.  Spread the stuffing evenly over the bottom of the dish.

Layer the turkey over the stuffing.

Top the turkey with a layer of potato, alternating bands of white and sweet.

Finish it off with a border of green beans!

Spoon cream of mushroom soup over the white potato.

Cover with foil and bake at 350◦ for 35 minutes.  Remove the foil and bake 15 minutes more.  Garnish with fresh rosemary and serve with the Roast Turkey Gravy.

This comfort meal has become a tradition at our house, I make it from scratch in early November to get in the holiday mood.  Then I make it again with our leftovers on Thanksgiving weekend.

Start a new tradition at your house with this family friendly comfort meal.

Happy Thanksgiving from our home to yours!

  1. Wow! What a clever idea! I just wish that there were more than 2 people in my house. I don’t think it has the same wow factor in an 8×8 pan. But thank you!
