When I was asked to make this casserole I was told that I was more than welcome to put my own twist on it. At first I thought I was definitely going to change it because I wasn’t so sure that I wanted to put cranberry sauce in a casserole or sandwich. I had tried it before and was not so crazy about it.

Then I read further than the ingredients and saw that you mixed Hellmann’s Mayonnaise into the cranberry sauce. The savoriness of mayonnaise with the sweet tang from cranberry relish is what convinced me to go ahead and try this casserole as it was written. I am so glad that I did because Grumpy and I loved it and would definitely make it again!

 

Ingredients for Hellmann's Turkey Thanksgiving Casserole

 

Hellmann’s is the only mayonnaise that I will use. Most people know I have a love affair with this Mayonnaise Cupcake recipe that I grew up eating! I believe this mayonnaise is the star of the show in this recipe! I even used it in my mashed potato recipe, something my brother-in-law Scott taught me to do a few years ago and it is the only way I make my mashed potatoes now!

This casserole was so easy to put together that even Grumpy could do it if he wanted to! You just put your stuffing in the bottom of an 8×8 casserole dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
