READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by BethyB

Although I'm not sure of the origin of the name, this was the main dish served at my wedding rehearsal dinner. My mother-in-law had made it for me one time I was visiting and I have loved it ever since. Although, not a low-fat, low-cal dish, it's a great way to use the left-over Thanksgiving turkey.

This is delicious! I didn't have any Ritz crackers, so left that out. I added salt, pepper and 1 t of Spanish Paprika and a little onion powder, then served this over egg noodles. I make a similar version with the addition of one small can of chopped chilies and a couple chopped green onions, then roll the mixture up in flour tortillas and bake. It's all delicious!!
