Do you still have turkey in your fridge?! We certainly still have a lot, hence this recipe. I originally made this last year at Thanksgiving with my leftover rice stuffing and turkey. So this year, I made my own rice, mixed it with some leftover rice I had in the fridge, added in some sauce, veggies and cheese and voila! A dinner that will fill bellies and leave you feeling satisfied! Gotta love that. AND! Its seriously 4 steps. SERIOUSLY. Don’t you love when things come together so nicely like that? Thats what I’m talkin’ about.
Leftover Turkey Casserole
2 cups precooked turkey, cubed
2 cups broccoli florets
1 1/2 cups long grain white rice
2 cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1-2 cups fried onions (you know you have some leftover from that green bean casserole!)
1/4 cup chopped toasted almonds (optional)
STEP 1: Cook 1 1/2 cups rice according to packaged directions. Easy!
STEP 2: Steam broccoli-arrange them on a plate, put a little water at the bottom of the plate, cover with plastic wrap and microwave until they are cooked to your liking.
STEP 3: Mix it all together! This means you mix the rice, broccoli, turkey, soup, salt and better all together. Pour it into a baking dish big enough.
STEP 4: Top it off and bake! Cover the top of your filling with cheese, fried onions and almonds. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until all that cheese is melty and ooey gooey! Oh how I love food.
