Like I mentioned, I really leaned on things that I didn’t have to make from scratch for this dinner idea. This ground turkey casserole is beautiful to serve, easy to transport, and makes a great hostess gift if you are attending a potluck. It’s a crowd-pleaser – for sure!
If you want to add a little some extra to your casserole, you could always bring a side of cranberry sauce. Are you a “jelly in the can” kind of girl? Full confession – that’s my favorite kind!
I have friends that make me homemade cranberry sauce when it’s Thanksgiving season and I do enjoy those flavors as well. But give me that wiggly jelly any day of the week and I will be one happy camper. LOL!
