    I made this thanksgiving recipe this morning and it was better than my thanksgiving meal! I was a little concerned about how the cranberry sauce and mayo would be mixed together and it was fabulous! Thank you so much for sharing that very tasty casserole recipe. This is a keeper!

    Sounds yummy. I’ve been looking for an after Thanksgiving Casserole recipe which also includes the use of cranberry sauce, but why mix it w/mayo? I would add a layer of vegetables (such as peas & carrots OR green beans) somewhere in between.

    • it’s completely flexible. You can add or omit anything you like – that’s the great part about casseroles. The mayo does add a creaminess and brings the casserole together nicely, though.

    This sounds wonderful. We usually make dressing instead of stuffing. I think it would still work. I think from now on we should make an extra pan to make sure we have enough to try this recipe. My whole crew is excited to try this one!
