Leftover Thanksgiving Dinner Casserole

One of the best parts of Thanksgiving dinner: LEFTOVERS!
We usually just make turkey sandwiches for the days following Thanksgiving, but this is a fun way to mix all my favorites together into a delicious casserole. The layers remind me of Shepherd’s Pie, just in Thanksgiving fashion. 🙂
