This is a family favorite. We make this every year the day after thanksgiving.

On a personal note: I don't layer mine. I simply mix everything up in a big bowl then spread it out in my casserole pan.

This can also be made ahead of time and frozen. To serve from freezer, heat covered in 350 degree oven for 1 1/2 hours or until bubbly hot.
