THANKSGIVING LEFTOVERS LASAGNA
Repurposing Thanksgiving leftovers in a sandwich is so damn predictable. When you're cramming cold chaos between a couple slices of bread just to eat over the kitchen sink, you've given up. Grab the gravy boat and lay down some lasagna bc this year YOU'RE MAKING THANKSGIVING 2.0 BITCH
Okaaaay if you're making this with existing leftovers then skip ahead to the next paragraph. Otherwise, roll up your motherfuckin sleeves and make our gravy and stuffing recipes. Now, let's do the other fillings.
To make the mashed sweet potatoes, place the chopped sweet potatoes in a steamer basket over a couple inches of water. Steam, covered, over a medium heat, until the pieces are easily pierced with a fork, about 10-15 minutes. Throw those soft sons of bitches in a medium bowl with the butter, salt, and maple syrup then smash em up till they're all creamy and set it aside. To make the brussels sprouts, warm up the olive oil over a medium high heat in a large saute or fry pan. Add the chopped brussels, salt, and saute until the start to brown in some spots, about 8-12 minutes. Add the onions and cook for another 3 minutes or until the onions are translucent. Turn off the heat, stir in the lemon juice, and set aside. Last, throw together the scalloped potatoes by tossing the sliced potatoes together in a large bowl with the oil, salt, and 1 cup of the gravy. EASIEST ONE IS DONE AND DONE.
To make the lasagna, warm up the oven to 375 degrees and grab an 8x10 baking dish. Ladle about 1 cup of the gravy into the bottom of the pan and lay down enough noodles to cover the bottom with *just a bit* of overlap. Spread the scalloped potato filling over the noodles, press down, and then pour another ½ to full cup of the gravy over top. Then place another layer of noodles over this like you did on the bottom of the pan. Now REPEAT that whole process with half of the stuffing you made, the mashed sweet potatoes, and 3/4 of the brussels all as individual layers with the gravy until you run out of room in the pan and top with a final layer of noodles. Cover the noodles with the remaining gravy and then add the rest of the stuffing and brussels on top. Make that shit look extra fancy.
Cover that whole dish with foil and put that it in the oven for about 30 minutes. Careful bc this shit can get real heavy. Gently take the foil off after that and cook for another 25-30 minutes or until the edges of the noodles start to look a little golden. This is gonna be real fuckin hot so let it sit for about 10-15 minutes before going to town. Or burn your taste buds. Who gives a shit.
