We have a LOT of food leftover – I’m sure many of you are in the same boat. We decided to do a three-day Thanksgiving since we kept it small this year, so we started on Wednesday with ham and biscuits, had a traditional turkey and sides last night, and today we’re making the most of leftovers with my keto turkey casserole or keto turkey pot pie, pumpkin bars and garlic roasted broccoli.

This low carb turkey casserole is a variation of my keto chicken pot pie recipe – with a few modifications to account for Thanksgiving leftovers! This has been a family tradition the day after Thanksgiving for decades. I’ll make the keto turkey casserole around noon and then we graze on that and any other leftovers throughout the day! I usually have an open house for friends on the day after Thanksgiving, but we’re playing by the rules for a socially distanced holiday, so we’ll just be eating all the leftovers and treats on our own!

I hope you all had a beautiful, safe and happy Thanksgiving – I’d love to hear what was on your menus. And if you make this keto Thanksgiving leftovers recipe, please let me know how it turned out in the comments below!

FOR THE FILLING

  • 1/2 small yellow onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms chopped
  • 1/2 cup celery chopped about 2 stalks
  • 2 cups chicken bone broth
  • 1 tsp dried thyme

  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425℉.

FOR THE TURKEY FILLING

  • Place a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the butter and allow to melt down.
  • Add onion, garlic, mushrooms, and celery and stir until vegetables have softened and onion is just translucent.
  • Add the bone broth and spices.
  • Boil and then reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Add the heavy cream and xanthan gum.

Hi! I created Ketology after struggling for years with hormonal changes and weight gain. As I got older, I found managing my weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. Within 3 months of switching to a ketogenic lifestyle tailored for my age, I not only shed 30 pounds of stubborn fat, but my mood improved, my focus sharpened and I have had nothing but positive effects!
