You don’t have to wait for Thanksgiving to enjoy turkey and potatoes. This turkey potato casserole recipe lets you enjoy turkey day year-round.

How great is that?

I love how pretty this casserole looks in a cast-iron skillet, but if you don’t have one you can use any casserole dish you have on hand.

Although, I will say once you start using a cast-iron skillet you’ll be hooked. I love cooking and baking in them.

Lodge cast iron skillets are my favorite and so affordable. Plus cast iron skillets are great for cooking over the campfire.

This recipe is creamy and rich, but the secret to not having the casserole become to dry is to cook the white sauce until it’s creamy but still a bit runny.

I calculated the Weight Watchers FREESTYLE points on the WW site and this recipe comes in at 13 points per serving.

Point Calculation Note: WW/Weight Watchers has changed their point program since I calculated this recipe according to the Freestyle Plan. You’ll need to adjust the points according to your particular plan.

I looked for ways to save a few more points, but I don’t want to reduce too much because it just won’t be as delicious.
